It is not hard to find this restaurant like many reviews say (although, I also believe that my husband has a built-in GPS). Nice service, the food was fresh and nicely presented, though wasn't that special, considering the price, than other restaurants we ate in Venice. There were only two other tables, so the place was king of empty. If... More

Absolutely fantastic. This restaurant is one of the best I have ever eaten in. I would recommend the Venetian seafood starter and any of the steaks for main

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...
