We dropped into Venice having been a few times already. We only had a day to spend walking around the city as we came via cruise ship in the morning, so decided to spend our time away from the main tourist area, so stayed to the north. Walking around by the Opera house and train station we passed this trattoria,... More

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!
