With lots of choices in Italian eating in Venice, this is by far the best. A great chef who tries new and different recipes. All are wonderful. Outstanding and personal service. Located on the island, there is great window shopping and bistros nearby for your after dinner pleasure.

Food was good, just not great like the prices would suggest. Average at best. The tables are so close together, you better like strangers joining into your conversation. When the woman at the next table got up, her rear end almost landed in my plate! If you are claustrophobic in the least, this place is not for you! It took... More

This is the third time I've been here and it is always fabulous. It is the best Italian restaurant in Venice. Dining in or outside the service is great and the food is the best!

Did not have a reservation, as we had just arrived in Venice Beach for the weekend, but they could accomodate us at the bar.........and so we did. The bartender/waiter Armando made it a pleasure! Not only did he serve us well, we were thoroughly amazed by his ability to juggle many responsibilities and converse with everyone at the bar. Very... More

Luca and Antonio have created a fine dining experience. Food and service was terrific! Pasta is homemade. Specials are excellent, and they take reservations. We dined curbside on a lovely evening and had such an enjoyable meal, from the bread to the salad to the main course. Pork tenderloin medallions were a big hit, the Bolognese was really tasty, and...

Had a delicious al fresco dinner tonight. Mine was homemade sockeye salmon and smoked pancetta ravioli and hubby grilled salmon over spinach. Fabulous. Also had the special app--lump crabmeat, avocado, diced pepper, and marinated pieces of chiabatta bread in a sort of tower. Yummy. Will visit them again.

We have been to this great restaurant three times over the past three months. The food during each visit was exceptional, the service was prompt,friendly and courteous and overall experience was great. We are relatively new (three seasons) to Venice. We have gone to many restaurants in the Sarasota /Venice are but Cassariano tops the list on great places. Don't... More

Food, service, and atmosphere are the best we found in the Venice area. Some interesting menu items and wine list choices beyond the typical offered at most Italian restaurants. If you only eat at one restaurant while in Venice, this is the one to visit.

During a recent visit to Venice, I had the opportunity to do a House Tour. As a result, I received a coupon for this restaurant. My sister and I went to this place for lunch in between touring houses. We both had their salad/sandwich combo plate. My salad was good but my sandwich was very dry. I tried to get... More
