We came here because of a write-up in the Guardian. The setting of the place is great, but the food isn't even passable. I had a vegetable antipasto where the vegetables that should have been fresh were either frozen or canned (e.g., peas). All the veggies were covered in a bland white sauce, the only purpose of which could have... More

I loved the area of the restaurant. It was near a beautiful little church. The restaurant was quaint and I loved the artwork on the walls. The staff was very friendly and the food was delicious.

We liked the place so decided to stay there. In the menu we found our favourite dish - grilled fish for 2. The waitress discribed it as a big pan and lots of fish types out there. What a big surprise was when waitress brought us a plate of risotto with seafood. We thought maybe this is just a first... More

We were looking for a place not located on one of the main streets if Venice as we wanted something a little quieter. We were greeted by a friendly waiter on the street and decided to stay without even looking at the menu. We were so pleasantly surprised at this decision, it was the best food we had during our...

This was recommended to us by our concierge at Al Ponte Antico and we were very impressed. I've subsequently seen some mixed reviews but we had a great experience, the staff were great, and willing to stop by for a laugh (there are caricatures of each staff member which are pretty funny). I recommend it, although I do rate it... More

This used to be our favourite place in Venice when we always ha wonderful imaginative food with charming Luca in attendance. Alas that has changed and instead there is the standard touristy type menu in different languages. We had the fried aubergine balls as a starter which were quite nice but my husbands gnocchi was not fresh or well cooked... More
