We ate here for lunch. We had a table right at the edge of the covered area by the canal. Amazing views and very romantic. The waiter was friendly, the wine was good, the food was good. It wasn't a meal that wowed us, but it was decent food at reasonable prices.

We came here for an evening meal and were met with a frosty reception from the proprietor and staff. We should have just left but felt obliged once we were on the premises (over polite English, when will we learn?) Starters came out separately as they got one order wrong, mains were extremely salty and almost inedible. There are many... More

When travelling, especially on a summer's day (as was the case when we were in Venice) we normally don't have a heavy lunch. In this case having spent a very long morning and part of the afternoon on touristy things, we were very tired and perhaps a little dispirited. We chose this restaurant because it was in a pretty position... More

This place was right around the corner from our hotel and steps from Campo San Barnabas. The food was delicious. Between the group of us we had oysters, steak, ravioli and I personally ordered the Venetian-Style Cuttlefish which means it is smothered in it's own ink. Everything was phenomenal. The cuttlefish was the best meal I eat in Venice and... More

We sat outside with a large group under the canopy by the canal. The breeze from the water was nice. The service was good and the food was great! I had duck ragu (excellent!), saltimbocca, and a chocolate soufflé. Of course wines and lemoncello (just a sip!). A wonderful evening and experience.

Came across this restaurant on our way to the Peggy Guggenheim Museum. We were initially attracted to the outdoor patio. An enclosed outdoor walled space with pictures and memorabilia hanging on the wall. We order the pre-fix €20 menu and had pasta with mussels and fried calamari served with the local house white wine. It was delicious. Reservation are not... More

Place looks nicer than the food... pizza just OK. Fish was fine but a little fishy and dry. Wait staff nice, all spoke good English. I just cant get over that "Coperta" charge.

I ate here my first night in Venice. My traveling companions flight was delayed, so I was alone and it was raining. Not the start to my trip I'd hoped for. After walking pointlessly in the rain I came across Al Casin del Nobili, it looked dry and inviting so I gave it a try. I only had a pizza... More

Service was good, better than many restaurants in Italy. Shared an excellent duck ragu Bolognese pasta starter, then a wonderful preparation of branzino. Everything was delicious

We ate here in the middle of a hot, hungry day. We ate off the daily menu. The food was basic but wel executed and service was friendy, even with a sometimes-irritating toddler in tow. It was not anything super memorable, but reasonably priced for Venice and good portions of good food. I'd eat here again if I wasn't in... More
