Just back from a most enjoyable evening at this friendly restaurant. we had tracked it down because one of our party of five is coeliac and this place was recommended. We were instantly made to feel at home, and were told 'you'll be safe here!', which was true. Pleasant food with a decent range of gluten-free choice, and welcoming and... More

We were initially looking for another restaurant we found in Tripadvisor, but when we passed this place we were attract by its decoration and Tripadvisor certificate. The restaurant is amazing in anyway, beautiful ceiling lighting, comfortable atmosphere. No need to mention gorgeous baby octopus and stunning tasty risotto. We give food 5 star instantly. However, when we asked the bill,... More

Through a local friend recommandation, we decided to book for lunch. The decor of the place is of very good taste, the staff is superfriendly and multilingual. 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!

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
