A Canalside refuge

This pleasant, unassuming Trattoria is on the east side of Rio dei Vetrai, Murano. We enjoyed a simple pasta lunch (1x Tagliatelle with crab & 1x Spaghetti al sugo), nice house wine. A family run restaurant with good food and friendly staff. Reasonably priced, we'd go back.

Water side eating on the calmer island of Murano, 15 euros for the set menu was fantastic value and if inflation takes this higher you will still have a great meal. I had the spaghetti marinara and squid in ink, both packed controlled amounts of umami flavours and a side salad on the side. The restaurant also has real table... More

My sister and I both ordered off the menu di giorno, she had the seafood lasagna to start and I had the spaghetti marinara. The lasagna was fine but the spaghetti was crazy good. Not covered in gloppy thick tomato sauce but light and full of perfectly cooked seafood. We both enjoyed the seppie with polenta and green salad. Service... More

The food here was very good but the service let it down. We waited a long time for our order to be taken and a long time in between each course. The waiter seemed overwhelmed with the amount of customers.

We shared a lunch here and had a lovely experience. The set lunch was only 15 Euros for 2 courses and a side dish. It was very tasty. The service was good. It was very busy and there were limited staff. They work really hard but perhaps service not as quick as other places. The large area out the back... More

We ate here twice during our recent stay at the La Gare, and thoroughly enjoyed both visits. Admittedly off season, we hadnt booked but were made welcome and joined several other British diners who had also discovered the restaurant as one of the few open at this time. The menu is heavily fish based, which we liked . On our... More

We decided to eat here as the last few reviews on Trip Adviser were positive however I have to say our experience at this restaurant was shocking. Poor service, extremely long wait for menus and food, and after receiving our order they then took over 15 minutes to return with bread rolls and sauces. Risk it if you dare.

This family run restaurant was a pleasure to eat in. Simple char grilled fresh fish served well and a delicious Tiramisu (recommended by a 'local') to follow. The staff were attentive and charming.

Excellent choice for lunch with attentive staff that can help you with your Italian (love it!) Good 3-course lunch for 15 euro in a very picturesque setting.

Venice definitely is a place for great eats so it's difficult for all of them to be spectacular. After walking around the island we chose this restaurant randomly. The service was little slow and impersonal and the food was just ok. Don't get me wrong it better than most places but after having the opportunity to eat in some amazing... More
