Recommended by the hotel we were staying in. We ate here on a Saturday night and had a wonderful meal. We hadn't booked (recommended) but even though it was really busy the friendly staff made us feel very welcome and found us a table upstairs. The menu was wide and varied and reasonably priced. The food was delicious and the... More

We were in Venice for five nights in January which included our 9th wedding anniversary on the Wednesday, and my birthday on the following Saturday. We ate here on both those occasions and also on the Thursday - 3 evenings in total! We were welcomed on the first evening, our anniversary, by a young male waiter who seated us quickly... More

We had waited to be seated in a restaurant round the corner for ages with a queue forming behind us so we jumped ship and found this place. We had a look at the English menu outside but had pretty much already decided we wanted pizza! The staff were really welcoming and attentive, and were clearly multilingual since they were... More

There were seven of us, four adults and three children. We had arrived in Venice barely two hours earlier by train, had no chance to book anywhere for dinner so went, walking, from our hotel to find a restaurant. First week in January and it did not look auspicious. The restaurant Al Vecio Canton looked packed out but a welcoming... More

Family run restaurant that serves up fantastic quality food at fair prices. The chef can cook unlike so many Venetian eateries you get fresh quality food, The pizzas are also head and shoulders the best in town freshly made and tasty beyond words. For good food at reasonable prices we would eat here nearly everyday if we could. Lastly a... More

A tricky place to find, but worth it! A beautiful little place, that doesn't have a fanfare outside of waiters trying to pull you in. The staff were really helpful, and have a good understanding of English and were happy to recommend what to eat and what not to eat. There was a selection of authentic italian dishes from each...

We ordered Venetian specialities menu for 22 euro. That was a mistake, we should have ordered pizza instead- as everyone around did. I had as a main marinated sardines which to my surprised arrived with a polenta. Wine, marinated fish and warm polenta made me want to escape this place as quick as possible. This strange combo made me feel... More
