“Nice seafood ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

Visited for business dinner, nice food with traditional Hall and service. Very polite and friendly staff. Try the fish carpaccio. Seafood spaghetti is good, also the grilled prawns were excellent. Nice deserts as well. Not a touristic place.

“An absolute must!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

I just spent two relaxing and wonderful months in Venice and happened upon this restaurant by recommendation from a friend who owns another local restaurant. IT WAS AMAZING!!!! Table side presentation far exceeded my expectations. I had more friends visiting for New Years and took 10 people and all agreed it was one of the best meals ever! Very local place with an outstanding staff.

“Too salty”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

We ordered the razor clams and scallops, which were good. The soup and seafood pasta were WAY TOO SALTY. 1 star.

The squid ink pasta was okay.

“Frantisek from Plana , Czech Rep.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

It is not so easy to find so excellent Venetian restaurant between so many tourist orientated restaurants, mainly witn Chinese cooks.. We have found very good fish and seefoods menu with fantastic home feeling staff. Stephano was really excellent preparing food a front of us and on the end typical Italian "sorbet". We can only recommend it to whom they are looking to find good atmosphere and excellent food. Francesco and friends
