Had a fill-in meal to take before we left for the airport,and SO glad we chanced upon this place,will now be a regular. Really friendly staff, and simple freshly cooked food,very reasonably priced. The house red was the best we had in Venice (some is dire!).

Stumbled across this little gem of a restaurant as we wandered around the passages of Venice at lunch time. Service was warm and friendly. Food is mainly fish or seafood, but there are other alternatives on the menu. The minestrone soup was great, spaghetti carbonara was just right and the seared tuna with tomatoes, olives and baby leaf salad was... More

Nice service - very friendly. The food was pretty ok but nothing special. Had mix fried vegetables and seafood as shared starter which was good. Then spaghetti ragu and taglialette(?) scampi which both were average.

Very nice atmosphere in this typical "Osteria"! Not a 5 star restaurant but a small, true, full of flavour place! Very good the price too! Let's go and enjoy the flavour of typical venice dishes!

Our first eating experience in Venice was really lovely medium priced and off the beaten track. I had the cuttlefish black ink and polenta dish whilst my partner had scollops salad starters with sardine and onion as mains. Our waiter was very helpful for non Italian speakers and the food was delicious. We were the last to be served as... More

Located in a side street off the Plaza Santa Margarita, this is a perfectly satisfactory Italian restaurant, catering to both tourists and locals. The Plaza in years gone by was probably host to a whole variety of shops relevant to a suburban living area (Dorsoduro is an upper middle-class area of the city) but is now almost completely given up...

This is a nice restaurant on a quiet street. We got the spaghetti and polenta with seppia ink sauce. It was very good, it reminded me of jajangmyun (a Korean-Chinese soybean sauce noodle dish). Kind of earthy but with a seafood flavor.

Our dinner at this restaurant almost caused a serious argument between myself and my husband. First there was an awful smell in the street caused by a neighbour using something like acetone however restaurant management were able to get him to stop. Second I was served flat prosecco that thankfully was replaced. Third we were told that the seafood risotto... More
