We popped in this little place and we were very happy that we did. Food was authentic and portions are very generous. We enjoyed our meal very much and would definitely go back. The service was top notch and the prices were surprisingly very low. It is a must must try if you are in venice. They have a patio... More

Very nice atmosphere, the food was delivered in reasonable time (15-20mins) and the portions where the largest in any restaurant I went to in Venice. The quality and taste of the food were also extremely good. Overall a very good experience.

Food was pretty good and the portions were huge, I was a little worried about the bill but I was pleasantly surprised, there were 5 of us and we paid 62 euro Which is about 30 euro cheaper than any other place in Venice,

We stopped here for lunch before boarding our train. What a lovely experience. We ate outside as the weather was perfect. I tried the liver and polenta with onions, not for everyone but it was cooked to perfection. My companions choose gnocchi, which were beautiful, another had tagliatelle, and another fillet steak. All meals were terrific. As we were kept... More

First port of call for our trip to Venice as it was proximate to our hotel and reviews were good! We had lunch here and our meal was excellent as was the service we received. Our waiter although not having the best of English had enough so we could understand him and really made the effort. He also gave me... More

Do yourself a favour and walk an extra 15 minutes to find a plethora of restaurants to choose from. Genuinely nothing special about this place. Fairly basic flavours lacking that lip smacking goodness you expect from an authentic family run Trattoria in Italy. Service is lacking due to being understaffed......2 waiters serving 20 tables... If you intend to go and... More

I don't understand why this place is rated as high as it is on Trip Advisor, but this place is really disappointing! The food was cheap for a good reason -- overcooked boxed pasta is not what anyone wants if he or she comes to Italy, so why serve it? The carbonara was shameful, with gross chunks of hot dog-like...
