We can really recommend this small family runned restaurant. Great service and food - especially the seafood was handled really well.

We stumbled upon this place quite by accident as we were staying at a hotel located just in front of it. The food was excellent, the portions were very generous. The wine list was competitively priced and there were some very nice bottles available to purchase. The service very personal and the lady on front of house spoke excellent English... More

After a fabulous recommendation from my in-laws after their trip to Italy a couple years ago, my wife and I knew we had to try this restaurant. True to my mother-in-law's advice, it was out of the way, a little difficult to find, but definitely worth the challenge. My wife and I loved the sautéed clams and muscles for an... More

This place was just around the corner from our hotel and was an absolute gem! It only had 7 tables or so and was set in a lovely little courtyard garden. The food was delicious: home made pastas and delicious and perfectly cooked beef tagliata. Not super cheap but worth it! It is run by a husband and wife team... More

It was a nice and cozy restaurant, hidden in a quiet small road in Venice. Actually it is just downstairs of our home. It only open for dinner. The osteria is run by a family. One male cook and one female lady, I suppose they were a couple. Foods are good, delicous, and quite unique dishes. Not like other restaurants... More

We followed the tripadvisor review to come here. Very nice food and service. We reserve table via email and get quick response. Every dishes taste very good. It is more causal unlike other restaurants in town. Price very reasonable. Around 15euro for most dishes. Lets come

I first visited this restaurant after a friend recommended it and have since been back twice and recommended to lots of friends. Each time the food and service have been fantastic and on each occasion it's been the best meal we've had in the city. If you want to try real Venetian food and wine then this is the restaurant...

My wife and I pre booked this restaurant as advised for a Friday evening, there were only a few other tables occupied in the very pleasant court yard. This restaurant is hidden away in the back streets not far from the Rialto market and close to the San Cassiano Residenza d’Epoca Ca’ Favretto hotel which we would highly recommend. The... More

We enjoyed dinner there so much that we went back the next night. The seats are in a garden on a quiet lane. (there may be indoor seating, but the weather was lovely and the location inviting.) They don't have a huge menu, which I really like because it means they focus on doing things well.
