I liked mostly "dessert": the quality was really rare! All the meal was of high level. You can eat outside ( better than inside) and even if it costs almost like restaurant in London i can assure you that it worths.

Delicious food and good service. Do not have the menu unless you are really starving, given the generous portions. In my experience, best to eat à la carte. Outside tables on a pretty square. Have been there a number of times over the last few years. Good value for money considering its many qualities.

We went here for my Birthday and ordered the set menu (if I remember well it was 7 courses). I absolutely adored the food and am still craving for some of the dishes we had. It was very elegant venetian cuisine, with beautiful presentation elevating the protein. We had rouget fillet with foie gras shavings, slow roasted veal cheeks on... More

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.

Was our last night in Venice after a week stay we thought we would try a high end restaurant. Was a good decision. Had the Tuna steaks which were delicious. 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
