If you like sardines and onions, then the Venetian appetizer is for you. I thought it was full of flavor The pasta clam dish was fantastic Service was excellent and very personable A great people watching atmosphere as it's directly across from the water taxi station Not much of a wine selection here as they only serve Merlot and a...

We stopped for drink before getting Vaporetto in S.Basilio and owners were so friendly and chatty that we went back to try some food. Delicious food. Good recommendations from owners. Local wine and pleasant atmosphere. After your meal ask for ice cream it comes as double coloured ball swimming in ice coffee. Delicious!!!

Wandering the laneways of Venice, we were searching for a trattoria that was reasonably priced and had a WiFi connection. I ordered lasagne while my partner had a sandwich, I found my meal a little ordinary, the sandwich was good though. The place was clean, service reasonable and coffee to the usual Italian standards. The toilet was not only clean... More

This was such a great place during my visit in Italy. The owner was such an amazing guy who made sure we were taken care of. The food was very good and the views are absolutely breathtaking. He took us to the back for some shots of grappa (I think that's how you say it?) This place was right around... More

When the mains arrived my husband's squid was freezing and my cod was lukewarm and salty.......Not sure where people on here were eating to give it more than 2 stars!!!! Then the... More

A very handy waterside restaurant really close to the Hilton shuttle pick up stop - had a very nice 3 course set menu meal - a very busy little place with friendly efficient staff who spoke english and were able to explain what each course was if you did not know - people watching is my favourite thing and this...

While we dined along the canal, street performers played music and sang romantic songs. The restaurant is right next to a water shuttle stop, which many people may not like because of the busy foot traffic; however, I enjoyed the people watching. The food and service was good and prices reasonable.

My husband and I had lunch here one of our last days in Venice. The owner is so friendly and helpful. The food was also really good. I would highly recommend for a low key lunch.

The service they give is second to none and we were well looked after. The food was delicious. The waterside location alsi makes it convenient to get to.

We ordered two pastas which were so salty we could not even eat it. The prices on te door are diferrent to the menus. When we complained the waiter said that was how it... More
