Lovely people, food and atmosphere. Relaxed and not pricey but very good quality too. Well with a visit and close to the Vaporetto.

We visited here on our last night and it was a great way to end our holiday in Venice. Very well cooked, homemade Italian food at very reasonable prices. Cracking service and a friendly atmosphere. Well worth checking out.

Missed once... Yet worth to try to come back. The sauce of the signature Gigio potato dumplings is full of prawn favour. Must try. My wife like the ravioli esp the taste of spinach. Mussels are fresh as well.

We started with some nice wine then ordered some musules as a starter to share. They were some fresh, some not so fresh and some were even empty shells. We then ordered some fish and spaghetti with scallop's. The fish was char grilled (we were not asked how we liked it cooked) the burnt fish had no flavour what so... More

Patient and accommodating service staff. We didn't speak Italian and the waitress speak little English - she actually brought out the different fish available for the day for us to pick from. Good food for the price. The grilled fish was really very fresh - waitress also deboned the fish for my child. Great lunch!

With all the great reviews we were very happy this restaurant was only a block away from our hotel in Cannaregio. We had dinner there on a Saturday night but were really disappointed. I agree with the reviews about great service and portion size but the food was really not very good. We had a starter of baby shrimp, gnocchi... More

We decided on the 16 euro fixed price two course meal....the portions were huge and the good amazing. The house wine was delicious as well! The wait staff was friendly and not pushy. Spike decent English and even helped us with our Italian. Definitely worth... More

I'm Italian but I inform you that is not simple to find in Venice a restaurant with typical and good food at the right price. Well, Da Gigio is the place!!! Typical atmosphere, very good and kind service, excellent Venice food (seafood is the best) good prices and...a drink offered in the end! I can ask no more!

Had dinner here a number of years ago when recommended by a local shopkeeper, Enjoyed it then and decided to return for lunch after leaving our cruise ship. This visit was as good as the last. We sat in the courtyard at the back. Enjoyed great pasta and chicken escalope with salad. Prices were reasonable especially for this town!
