Our guidebook recommended this place, where we had mixed fish simply grilled or baked as main course. The flavours of the obviously fresh fish spoke for themselves. Salmon was a little overcooked. The Baccala starter with polenta was excellent. The restaurant is not pretentious but the formula works well.

Found this place by accident, looked busy with locals so we decided to give it a try. Staff were friendly and accepted that we were English peasants with no Italian between us. The food was good and the service was fantastic. The atmosphere was old Italian. I had clams followed by the Tortellini and the fillet steak in green pepper... More

We found this little gem while exploring the streets of Venice. Tucked beside a canal it was inviting. Service was quick and efficient. The lasagna was reasonably priced and delicious.

We always seemed to end up at restaurants mid-afternoon when the staff were all eating! Other than them, we were the only ones in here. We had Pork Scallopini, Pork Pizziola and Bellinis. It was great. Highly recommend.

While walking around Venice we passed this canal-side restaurant. There was a four-star trip advisor sticker on the window, so we decided to come back for dinner. Checking TA in advance, I saw erratic ratings, but the hotel said that they recently changed chefs and that maybe things were a little unsettled for awhile. We arrived a little before 8,... More

To set the scene - this restaurant looks like many other typical restaurants in Venice, but it's not worth your time and money. In addition to the below comments, this restaurant not only has a Cover Charge per person, but also a 10% service charge added to the bill. I had seen this restaurant earlier in the day and the...

This quiet restaurant is nicely appointed and has windows that open out to the adjacent canal. It is a way off the beaten track, but very worth the short walk. We enjoyed a full dinner with starters and salads. We really enjoyed the fried squid. The batter was very much like the tempura at a good Japanese restaurant. The salad... More

We liked that the menu had a good variety of entrees. We were a party of six and were happy to see beef pork and lamb, not just seafood.
