Good, but not great!

Nice food, but lacking that little bit of quality to take it to the next level. Starter, First (seafood spaghetti) and Second, Polenta with Octopus. House white wine.

After fighting the crowds in Venice it was nice to stay in a suburb a few miles by bus away from the town. One advantage was being able to eat in local restaurants that are not dependent on tourists. We found this restaurant to be very local, very reasonable and very good. I ordered a pizza and it was the... More

This place looks nothing from the outside and when you enter the bar area it just looks like a basic Italian local food stop. The main dining room is at the back and busy with a nice family dining atmosphere. Service is quick even when all tables are virtually full and staff really friendly. Great selection of pizza (cooked in... More

I heard about this place from a few friends who had been visiting Venice and the region, who said it was definitely worth a look. they couldn't be more right! The food was fantastic. Traditional Italian cuisine with a few little gems that I hadn't came across before, such as horse meat pizza for the more adventurous among you. Besides... More

My wife and I were really hungry and ordered a pizza, the 4-cheese pasta, bruschetta, and a large salad and shared everything. What a feast! The food was ready very quickly, the waitress was very nice, and everything tasted great. The ingredients are top notch--the tomatoes on the bruschetta tasted like they were picked from the garden right before being... More
