Ravioli with pumpkin is perfect and spaghetti with basil a delight... But nevertheless is an hour waiting for preparation of fresh pasta redicioulous. Understaffed?

It looked too pretty to be true, on the busy road from the station to St Marks Square, nestled alongside a canal and entwined in vines it looks a real tourist trap - which my wife fell for - so we had to book! However, the food was fantastic - fresh and tasty. Start with the king prawns wrapped in... More

Don't be taken in by the pretty canal side courtyard. This was hands-down the worst Italian we have ever had. Service was poor, white wine was warm, 15 euro for 2 over cooked scallops followed by dry tasteless mince masquerading as duck Ragu. Have had better ravioli from a supermarket frozen section. With wine, one appetiser and 2 pastas was... More

Just returned to our hotel in the canneregio area of Venice after an absolutely fantastic meal in Alla Palazzina. The food was super, perfect tagliatelle followed by a grilled fish platter for my husband and a perfect fillet steak for myself. The staff were welcoming and keen to ensure that our meal was up to standard. We tried our best... More

Went here with my wife while in Venice & liked it so much that we went back a second time. The first night there was a band playing which really made for a great atmosphere out in the garden, which is right beside the canal. We both had steak for mains on the first night & the wife had it... More

I have spent about 5 months working in Venice, and understand that the city can feel besieged by tourists and the toll that this takes on people that live and work here. Unfortunately, this was by far the rudest waiter I have ever encountered, anywhere. I had family visiting and brought them there because it has a lovely garden, and... More

I, like others, am a little surprised at the bad reviews. This was definitely our best meal in Venice. The beef carpaccio was excellent. The pasta bolognese was cooked to perfection, al dente and the right amount of sauce. We then proceeded to have one of the best steaks we have ever had (and we're from Chicago and think Chicago...

Visited Venice with 2 teenage grandchildren. They spotted the place after a visit to the ghetto. Wonderful pasta Bolognese, nice waiter and charming ambiance.

We visited this place as it looked authentic and was right next to the canal. We went in and studied the menu for a bit. We decided on what we wanted and called the main waiter. My husband ordered the ravioli. I asked for the roast chicken and the waiter just said "NO" very firmly. No reason given. He said... More

This is a charming restaurant and a pleasant change from most of the 'tourist traps' on this stretch of the main thoroughfare from the station towards St Marks Square. The service and atmosphere was good as was the food. Indeed, the tiramisu was the best we have ever tasted in the city of its birth. The price was a little... More
