Although the food was adequate, nothing special, the waitstaff was so rude and uncaring I would not recommend this place to anyone. They decided to finally take our order when I stood up to leave. Multiple other tables were served and given much better service. 14 nights in Italy, this was the only restaurant that treated us badly and the... More

We were a bit unsure due to conflicting comments about Raffaele. We just came here for our 1st wedding anniversary. If you are looking for a romantic location by small cannals(main grand cannal is not very romantic) this is the place. Very romantic, great seafood, they mark which seafood selections are frozen rather than fresh which I found very honest... More

This place was recommended to me by a local, and I was not disappointed. Wonderful location, right by one of the small canals. Very good food, try the local speciality; black spaghetti with fish. Slightly pricy but not that much higher than many average places in the city.

Marvellous setting on the canal. Service good. Food delish. Tiramisu excellent. Loved watching the colourful gondolas float by as we ate with the twinkling evening lights.

Was recommended by our B&B host and was directly across the canal from our apt yet the owner (bad attitude) said they were closed since we only wanted to dessert and drinks at 10pm. Found another place close by (Ristorante Alla Borsa) that treated us like kings at late nights even though they were a lil higher end place. Got... More

Very nice location and this is pretty much all I can say about this restaurant. The servers were extremely rude and, without a smile, they welcomed us with a: "Make it quick, the kitchen is closing". We sat outside but my table was extremely unstable and when I tried to fix it the waiter accused me to have moved it... More

We had a late supper at this restaurant and really enjoyed the experience. Great location/atmosphere (it was a cool night so we ate inside). We enjoyed the seafood risotto and had a great dessert (asked the waiter to recommend). Service was very good and it was good value for Venice. Only a short walk from St. Mark's.

Good grilled seafood dishes. Two people can share the mixed grill. Great location right on edge of canal.
