Happily we found it by chance, just along from the vaporetto station. It only serves hot food at lunchtime. We recommend giving careful consideration to the daily specials. In our case they were really fresh seafood. A wonderful mixed fish antipasto of small sardines in olive oil, crab, squid and herring. Mains were excellent. Sea bass ravioli, scallops with vodka...

Always stop here for lunch when in Venice. Signore Andrea and his staff are helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. Sit outside for a fantastic view over to Zattere. Let the staff suggest the pasta of the day, have a carafe of house wine, finish off with the homemade tiramisu and enjoy. Lunch doesn't get better than this......

We very much enjoyed our lunch here - a mix of tourists and locals, with extremely friendly staff and delicious pasta. We shared a plate of mozzarella, mint and aubergine caponata to start and then each had a pasta dish. The pasta with porcini and king prawns was particularly good. We also had two glasses of prosecco and a quarter... More

We read tripadvisor reviews and had high expectation for this place but disappointed. Nice view, friendly staff, uncooked pasta noodle, too salty pasta sauce. We couldnt find the reason why some people make a trip to this island just for this restaurant. It's a waste of time and money. Maybe the chef was off on monday?

We had lunch here and loved it. The prices were great for Venice. The food and view were spectacular. Most importantly, the house wine was incredible. It may have been one of the best wines I have ever had. Definitely stop here when in Venice.

A nice little restaurant across the wide Canale Della Giudecca from Zattere (south of the main group of islands that comprise Venice). This restaurant is very close to a Vaporetta (water bus) stop. Take Vaporetta # 2. Worth going a bit out of the way for a memorable lunch. Our hotel reception clerk strongly recommended this place for a nice... More

Went here last April during our Easter break in Venice. We crossed over to visit Guidecca and read the reviews on TA and decided to stop here for lunch. The owner is such a nice chap and he immediately seated us outside with a view across the awesome San Marco. The seafood was so fresh and we loved the sardines... More

The service started great. The waiter helped us with the menu and rearranged the outdoor seats to accommodate. Our first time to Guidecca we were not expecting the world but wow The food is terrific and the house wine was very pleasing The view is across from Venice so it is great Less than a 1/4 mile from the Hilton

If you are staying at the hilton the food is quite expensive so we decided to go for a stroll to see if there was any restaurants that were reasonably priced and this restaurant was. Great if your after some yummy pasta and the service is also great
