I would return. I WILL return

I have passed by this restaurant numerous times but it was always closed and empty or active and full. This time I passed at 6 pm when they were getting ready for dinner and asked if I could come back. They have two seatings: one at 7 pm and one at 9 pm. So if you come at 7 you... read more

Small bistro specializing in meat dishes as opposed to the usual fish/ seafood in venice. The food choice was limited, 5 starters and 5 mains but the lack of choice was more than compensated by the care and attention to detail which resulted in a delicious meal.

We were expecting to be overwhelmed by this restaurant because of its excellent reviews. We were underwhelmed! This is strictly a meat restaurant (no fish on the menu) which is what my husband wanted. The owner and staff were very pleasant. We were disappointed in the food. We started with an assortment of bread and bread sticks that were tasteless.... More

Not being a massive fish fan this restaurant was a haven for me in Venice. Lovely ambience although the tables are very close together to the point that we were very aware of the couple next to us! We both had the fillet steak which was lovely, followed by cheese and panna cotta. Also lovely option of having a bottle... More

My pork with plum sauce wad fantastic. My wife 's pork and mushrooms was also good. This is an eonoteca and wine choice was good. Deserts light and... More

Recommended by our B&B and turned out to be a good one. I had cold slices roast porchetta with horseradish sauce which was delicious and really strong horseradish which helped my cold. Then a lamb shank also delicious, although I'm not sure either dish is very Venetian ! Wife had fegato alla venezia that was lovely and not drowned in... More

Small restaurant so glad we booked on Sat night. Small menu, but perfect market driven choices, all tasting like they'd been crafted with care. Mix of mainly Italian & French diners which augured well. Everything was exemplary, including the wine recommendations, & stand outs were excellent rabbit & cheese plate. Something so simple was a well explained taste sensation! Will... More

Lovely friendly little restaurant. We both had a delicious smoked pumpkin gnocchi to start with. I then had a really tasty veal, artichoke and polenta dish and my mum had a lovely prok and plum dish. Lovely bread and wine too. The price of the food and wine was reasonable and the service was friendly. We didn't think that other... More

Our B&B hostess suggested this restaurant, and we checked it out on TA. It was every bit as good as folks were saying. It is a comfortable neighbourhood restaurant with a welcoming staff. The food was superb, in the best tradition of Italian cooking with excellent ingredients perfectly cooked to order. My wife and I both had the fegato Veneziana,... More
