We have returned each time we visit the Veneto area, and have always received a warm welcome from Christina, whose husband is the chef/owner. It is a simple trattoria, but consistently excellent. A great place for a quiet, delicious meal after the hectic Venice tourism scene!

Small trattoria, very limited menu, overpriced, very limited wine list. Basically a pasta place. The service was slow.

This restaurant was a real find. It is next door to the very expensive Villa Franchesci hotel and Margherita restaurant and is a friendly informal place with good traditional food. We had lunch and dinner and enjoyed both. There is good fish and plenty of choice. The location is very pleasant away from the main road in a backwater off... More

On business travel, I was staying at the hotel next door and thought I would branch out of the hotel restaurant and brave this place armed with reviews from this site. I ate on my own on a Thursday night and - would you believe - was given a seat easily. The place is simply decorated inside with a simple... More

Went here a couple of times whilst staying in Mira with work. If I'm honest I only came here originally as no one else was open on a Sunday night although came back for a second time as he food was good. The menu is very traditional for the area - mainly fish - all cooked very well. The house... More

Are you a tourist visiting Venice? Do you want to discover the typical flavours of the place, the true regional cuisine? Then, you should definitely try this lovely family-run trattoria which is located in the "Riviera del Brenta"! There are two indoor rooms and a summer outdoor living overlooking the channel. Dishes are simple but at the same time very... More
