We were looking for somewhere away from St Mark's Square and read a recommendation in the UK's Daily Telegraph (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/destination/italy/venice/33612/Venice-restaurants.html ), and their review was spot on. A nice twisty walk from our hotel and you come across a quiet square and are able to sit outside in a balmy evening. Service was friendly, wine choice excellent, and food was... More

We spent the first night of our honeymoon eating here. It was fabulous and the staff were excellent and very accommodating when we asked to move indoors due to slight mosquito troubles on the outside terrace. We opted for the tasting menu and it was excellent - every course was faultless in it's presentation and taste. This is a great... More

I went to this restaurant in Venice and really appreciated the food and the service. It has good pastas and a very good wine list. It is a little expensive but it's a good relation "quality" vs "price".

This is a very up-market excellent rewstaurant, situated on a charming little square right opposite the Hotel Santa Marina. It is in easy walking distance of St Marco's square and the Doge's palace. The service was good and the food beautifully presented. The wines were delightful. It is fairly pricey, but we all felt that we had got what we... More

This is our first trip in Venice. Before we decided to come here, we had done loads of researches of food and wines. This place is a hidden gem tucked in the corner of Campo Santa Maria. The host lady is so lovely. The food was amazing. We had a Misto di cicheti veneziani followed by Ravioli di melazane, Linguini... More

About the friendliest wait staff you will ever meet. The food is good to excellent. There are three rooms and it holds a lot of people, but from inside each room you would never know it. Recommended.

My partner had the Sea Bass which was broken out of its case and skinned right in front of us! Waiters also took time yo explain how each part of... More

We stopped in here and did not have a reservation. All the outside tables were reserved so we ate inside. The service and the meal was excellent. The waiters were very attentive without being intrusive and were very friendly. We were staying about 20 metres from here and it was one of the reasons we chose to eat here. We... More

We opted for this restaurant on our last night of Venice and we were so glad we did. A little more expensive than a backpackers usual meal budget but we pushed the boat out. The food was impressive in both taste and presentation. I had the king prawn starter and sea bass for main and they both tasted so fresh... More

We ate here last night and the service was terrible. Maybe it was just out waiter but he was very disinterested in serving us ! Everyone else seemed to have more attentive waiters. We were sitting at our table for a about 15 min before we had anyone come to the table. We ordered a bottle of Chardonnay and 30... More
