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

Food was cooked well and the house wine was lovely. Plenty of food for a reasonable price. Would recommend and go again.

Great value and great food. We have eaten dinner and lunch here and enjoyed all our food. Good portions and good wine. The fish is especially good. We will be back!

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...

only just managed to get a table as the restaurant is quite small. Pleasantly surprised when we got the bill and it was only 26 euros for two mains a side and two soft drinks. The food was very nice and the chicken was excellent, would definitely recommend.

The restaurant was busy but we only had to wait a few minutes for a table. An excellent meal of the day for 16 euros each. The service was great and the drinks reasonably priced.

I noticed the trip advisor sign in the window. It made me decide this is where I will have my lunch. I sat just inside the open door where I could watch the passing crowd. I settled for spaghetti Bol, and a quarter carafe of white wine which soon was followed by another! The bread rolls I sent back as... More

A bustling little spot full of locals, served us lovely pasta and fish, with a carafe of the house wine - all for not much money!
