With a recommendation from a magazine, thankfully we were able to get in without a reservation & it's just near by to the Rialto bridge but not so congested on this side of water way. Patio was waterside & great, service superb and try the fish topped bruschetta as they were unique and tasty.

We had a lunch here on the first day and were very disappointed. The restaurant itself is very nice (beautiful stone walls), but we were charged a very high coperto (table fee) I cant remember exactly how much, but it was more than double the amount of any other we were charged on the entire trip.) We had one plate... More

Firstly - the location along the Rialto - excellent, and also near the Rialto stop for the vaporetto which was particularly useful as we arrived during a downpour of rain and were grateful that the short walk to the restaurant was mostly undercover. Unfortunately, the rain meant we could not eat outside. We were a party of six and booked... More

been there few times and always tried different dishes. I strongly recommend the fish courses and ask the Wine expert to guide you through the wine list. Frank Diddio

Along the canal, so it was convenient to get to. We got off the water bus at Rialto, and I wandered around to find a place to eat. We were really tired, so "pleasant" was important. Waiter was helpful and easy. Good food; good wine; good dessert. We had one meal and split it -- plenty of food. Waiter helped... More

Only restaurant in 10 days to rush us. The head waiter kept coming over and asking if we were ready yet to order.

Our table - like all of them looks out on the Grand Canal across a small piazza. It is not right on the canal. I had an outstanding burrata. My wife and I shared barley risotto and buckwheat fusilli. Both were excellent. First time I've had risotto made from barley or pasta made from buckwheat. Desert was a very good... More

Food was special and delicious. Do expect to pay some bucks. Waiters were great and didn't try to rush you away. Amazing how well they served you for such a crowded & popular place. We loved sitting outside looking at the Grand Canal.

We stopped here for a few drinks and Crostinis. They were lovely but the service was positively awful, the waitress was so moody, slamming down glasses and plates and was very short with us. I would maybe recommend trying somewhere else along the little strip, as it is a lovely setting.

This was a recommendation from the tourist office! Nice location very close to the Rialto bridge. However from the start the service was lousy. The waiter made us feel like idiot tourists with no sense of hospitality. Some of the food was ok and the veggies were bad. Very small portions but clearly overpriced due to the location. The drinking... More
