Had dinner in Anima Bella with my husband the other night, it was absolutely delicious! It is a tiny place near the Piazza San Marco, with different pasta dishes, salads and entrees. You have to try the Arrabiata pasta, we actually ordered it twice that night!!

This was not my first visit to this great little place. We discovered it in 2004 and I could not wait to go back. It's a little different now - fewer tables (it was pretty crowded before) but the food was still very enjoyable. This is such a great find in the neighborhood near San Marcos - everything else is...

Carlo was a one man show! Took our order, cooked our food, cleaned our table, did the dishes! He was incredible. Really really good lasagna and tortellini. Suggested to us from our hotel as a nice quiet place for lunch and it definitely was. Delicious! Great service!

We visited on our honeymoon. We were looking for a more "quaint" type of restaurant away from the "sit em down, feed em and chuck em out" style that seems to be the norm around St Marks Square these days. We looked at lots of restaurants but found them all to be pizza and fast food type that was open... More

Our experience at this restaurant was so bad that I feel the need to write about it six months after our visit! Terrible, abrupt service, sloppy pasta prepared without care and an outrageous twenty percent service charge. We ordered two pastas and a soup and were charged sixty Euros! Avoid at all costs!

We LOVE this little restaurant! Last year we ate there twice for lunch. We did the same this year! There are only 6 tables in this small place - mostly tables for 2, and everything is so fresh and tasty. The lasagna is a must try!

We got the very last table in this miniscule trattoria . Service attentive and quick . Food quality most acceptable . Good value . But if you are slightly overweight ...or american , do not go in !

We stumbled upon this place whilst looking for somewhere to eat before going to a show. We only started looking at reviews after we had sat down and were a little dubious, given that the reviews were very mixed. We were very impressed. Yes the prices for the portion size are a little high, but the quality of food is... More

The menu looked good value, so I went in hoping for a quick meal (I had just arrived in Venice). I ordered a pasta dish for 10.95, some water and a side salad. I was amazed when the bill came to over 30 Euro. The side salad alone was 10.95! In addition they had charged tax (no other restaurant did... More

We ordered a creamy pasta with nothing in it (€12.50) and seemed more like entree size. A squid ink pasta (€16.50) with 6 tiny pieces of squid in it. Each piece about the size of your pinky fingernail bar one. An equally small portion of salad that had 6 slices of tomato and 6 slices of buffalo cheese and 10... More
