This restaurant was recommended so we turned up on a busy Friday night and Stefano was initially a little stand-offish, no doubt all part of his show. He allocated a table and gave us the menu, which is only in Italian. There were no other tourists which we took as a good sign. On seeing our difficulty in ordering, Stefano came over and proposed that we follow his recommendations involving antipasto then pasta, two portions of each for our party of four, followed by fish. We knew that this could be a way of trapping tourists but we had confidence in Stefano and it was not misplaced. We had the most delicious meal served with inexpensive and good house wine, all served with humour and efficiency by Stefano. We were wary of the size of the bill, with no cause. We ate in a tourist restaurant at Rialto the next night and paid 25 euros less for a meal which was so, so inferior in every aspect and which left us nostalgic for good Venetian cuisine.
