“What a great find!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

We stumbled upon this place while looking for another restaurant and we are glad we did. It was the best pasta we had in Venice. The staff was friendly and the restaurant itself had a lot of charm. Its difficult to find but well worth the effort. Try the cuttlefish pasta with black sauce if you're feeling a little adventurous.

“Excellent risotto”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

The seppie risotto was excellent, and we liked the ambience. The main courses we had were nothing special. The restaurant is just two minutes from the Rialto and we were the only non-italians in the house.

“Good, but pricy. ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

There are two ways you can eat here. Either "al banco", which is at the bar, eating a few small dishes while drinking wine. This is great value for money. The other way is sitting and ordering from the menu. In this case it can be a little pricy. The food is very good, but for a meal for three people, which was a starter and a pasta dish each, we paid 80 euros. 27euros a head is just a bit too much.
So stick to small plates at the bar.
