Excellent Mediterrenean fish food as well: I tasted cuttlefish with broccoli and cheese, tuna with fennel and orange. All the desserts we ordered: rum baba, delizia al limone and chocolate tart were amazing!

We visited on the recommendation of family and friends. The restaurant was very quiet but had a beautiful menu. My partner started with scallops and I will aubergine tagliatelle which were both delicious. He then had catch of the day- grouper with zucchini and a mint lemon sauce which was sublime. I ordered calamari filled with ricotta and smoked mozarella-... More

We followed our waiter Salvatore's suggestions completely and ate a delicious meal of pasta with crab and sun-dried tomatoes followed by grilled fish and vegetables. it was "ottimo," as a neighboring Italian diner said of his own meal. Friendly atmosphere, with Italian customers who are regulars. It was the perfect warming evening for us on a wintry Venice night.

We wandered into this cozy off the beaten path restaurant on our first night in Venice. Salvadore treated us to a delightful evening of delicious food and more than delightful service. Salvadore started our dinner with sparkling wine on the house followed by the best pasta and fresh black snapper we have ever tried. We were even more delighted to... More

Found on the trip advisor app on the first night. It was a bit quiet as it was down season. Friendly owner and a nice meal although it was expensive. We started with the aubergine and Parmesan bake which was lovely. My main was a sea bass ravioli with lemon butter sauce, which was the nicest pasta dish I've ever... More

This is a place to try. Close to the old-fashioned tourist traps next tho the Grand Canal Rialto bridge, this is the complete opposite. Modern, yet stylish, beautiful intimate emplacement, offers great service (very friendly owner/man in charge) and even better food. We had a fresh fish and it was really fresh and very well prepared. Worth every euro spent... More

Had lunch after our Venice tour. Shared Pappardelle pasta with Mushrooms & Clams, Seabass & Swordfish. Glass of Proseco and Tiramisu to finish the meal. All were excellent ! I'll probably never be able to find this place due to the maze of streets and courtyards that are Venice but I leave with a good memory of this meal. I... More
