My first couple of restaurants were closed, so knowing this was open from a review I had read, we stopped in for dinner. January seems to be the offseason. They were open before 7, which was a delight for us, and we ordered the risotto, and my husband had the pork (allergic to shell fish) The service was good, and... More

This restaurant ticked the box of being full of locals! The staff were friendly and jovial and spoke a smattering of English. The food was really good for the price, given this is in Venice, and after the meal the waitress brought us some free grappa and limoncello.

After a horrible tourist menu lunch (due to the place i wanted to go to being closed for vacation and a choice of tourist traps abounding and nothing else when we were starving), we ended up here for dinner based on good reviews. It is nothing Michelin-star-worthy, but it's honest, the prices are decent, the staff is friendly and the... More

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.
