A Special treat

We had the six course tasting menu and it was superb. Whilst the food is not wine matched the staff are more than happy to make suggestions and it wasn't with the most expensive bottle on the wine list. Each course was beautifully presented and led into the following dish. The service was first... read more

I visited it on march 24, 2015, during a conference in venice. Nice atmosphere, the food is very good, but too much sophisticated to my taste, far from the original venetian flavour. We were 7 people and were short in time because of the vaporetto schedule. The service was very slow and it seemed that the owner did not appreciated... More

My partner and I had the most wonderful meal every bite was a joy. I loved the laid back atmosphere of the place the efficent and friendly service. Nothing... More

We both had the winter tasting menu which cost 70 euro per person. The food was delicious, as was the wine recommended but the friendly waiter. There are also al la carte options if you don't want to go for the full tasting menu. We had a lovely evening here.

A number of people wrote best dinner in Venice, always come back, etc. This was our not only best dinner in Venice, it was fabulous. I had the seasonal 7 course dinner, I highly recommend it. A few at our table went ala cart, the staff was great in that they brought out a few extra courses for them to... More

Awesome. Superb food. Great friendly service. Away from the tourist throngs and reasonable, given the excellence of it all. It's original and you aren't forced into the prix-fixe or anything. I loved it so much I had to go back on my last night. And of course the waiters remembered us. Book ahead. You WILL get lost trying to find... More

The ambience, the service and the food all very good. Had a brilliant evening. Once again we had the degustation menu which was very good. Great selection of wine too. One def needs to book as it's very popular and not very large. They don't Rush you thru the meal and take their time to explain the dishes. We're very... More

We tried the tasting menu and it impressed us greatly. The mashed cod balls were excellent. All dishes were the perfect size to appreciate the taster courses without being absolutely full at the end. The white whine- a sauvignon-was a good accompaniment to the seafood centric venetian fare. Highly recommended.

It is impossible to overstate how truly bad service we received, making you feel like you're not welcome, can change your perception of a restaurant. If you'd asked us to review this meal during through the entree, we would have raved about the incredible, creative take on classics. We chose to opt out of the tasting menu as it didn't... More

A local colleague brought me here - a really lovely experience. Instead of ordering off the menu, he had the chef bring us many little tasting dishes and also recommend the wine. Emphasis is on fresh local seafood and traditional Venetian cuisine. Every course was delicious. A bit off the beaten path, in Castello, but still only a short walk... More
