Fantastic fish soup

We had a great fish soup, that was Indeed fantastic. The wine was good and we could choose a smaller bottle for just 2 people. The final sgroppino (a must after a dinner based on fish) was delicious. The personnel was very welcoming and kind and the price in the average for Venice - not too high... read more

Didn't look much from the outside, but so glad we went in. Had a lovely meal. Bruschetta to start, gnocchi and steak main course and a lovely pannacotta for sweet all washed down with some of their local wines. Would definitely go again if we go back to Venice.

We've been there the 1st of January, we were fully surprised of the quality of the dishes and the price. We recommend strongly this place just close to the Saint Marco place

We stumbled into this place and as we looked at the menu they invited us in. We took a chance!!! The waiter was very friendly and was telling us about the menu. After chatting we decided to let the waiter chose our meals from the 24€ menu. It was lovely we started with two different pasta dishes, then had fried... More

If you have wondered by this gem of a restaurant and stopped to read the menu you were probably greeted with the most charismatic restaurant hosts we have seen in Venice. We are so glad we let him talk us into eating here. From the house drink to the bread bowl and appetizers he was very accommodating. His recommendations of... More

We ate here after a horrible and expensive meal elsewhere earlier in our trip. This place renewed our faith in great food and service. Very friendly and relaxed, we had the caprese and then seafood spaghetti and lobster paccheri. Really great food and a lovely atmosphere. Good wine and good value. Would definitely recommend.

My wife & I had dinner at this restaurant on 6 October 2014. It seemed like a good choice since it was recommended & it was near our hotel in Venice. Frankly I was disappointed in the overall experience. The service was so slow that it ruined my meal. We sat for 45 minutes just waiting for a simple appetizer.... More

We were walking on a dark evening towards a particular restaurant, when the weather turned threatening. So we deiced to just drop into Osteria al Pozzo Roverso, after looking at the menu. Soon the downpour led to everyone seated outside to join us inside, adding to the lively atmosphere. We were treated to one of the best moules mariniere we’ve... More

After visiting many restaurants from the fancy to the 'normal', this place offered the best food on our trip. It's always a good sign when the waiter says "we'll make you whatever pasta you want!" A great place, great food and the best staff. You have to go!!!!
