We ate in this restaurant a couple of times, once as a couple for a late lunch (4pm) and once in a group of eight people for dinner (9pm) and every meal was faultless. We overheard other couples and groups at other tables saying the same thing. The staff speak a variety of languages and can switch between them with... More

This place was in a lovely square not far from our rental apartment. We were a party of eight and had wonderful dining experiences in Venice until this. Wish I had checked the reviews before sitting down, but the setting was so sweet and the menu was appealing. First the good - we did all enjoy our various meals and... More

Have been coming here for several years and were always happy with the food. Now the service is definitely not friendly any more and a plate of spaghetti is the same price as the menu used to be. Pity, the setting is still nice, outside in a relatively quiet square, and the quality of the food is still OK. On... More

Me and my parents had dinner here. You can sit outside on the campo, but you can also sit inside (a room on the 1st floor, not very interesting I must say). We had standard Italian food which was very good but not refined enough to warrant the high price. I had ravioli filled with fish, which was nice, I... More

We were strolling along on New Years eve afternoon and stumbled upon this great place. It is located in a large square and there is a huge, leaning bell tower visible. Great photo ops! We sat outside and had magnificent afternoon sun and people watching. The pizza was to die for - try the Diavola! Delicious enough to get my... More

This place is a bit touristy. The food was average to good. We were able to eat on the square and enjoyed the ambiance of a nice Venice evening. I assume there are other places that are equally as good if not better in the area,

Good standard Venetian tourist restaurant. The service was good, attentive but not over bearing. The food was reasonable. Good pizza but the Carbonara was nothing to write home about. The bathroom was a little flooded and the flush was constantly running.

This was of the beaten path. When we arrived it was relatively quiet but as the sun went down it more persons came. We liked the fact that it wasn't as crowded or as noisy as some of the other restaurants around st marks piazza or the rialto bridge. The staff was very friendly and the service was excellent. The...

I had an excellent Lunch here on the 18th of November 2013 on the Terrace in the sun. I also had 1/2 ltr. of white wine. The plaza has a nice view. The waitress was friendly.
