Description: In 1953, just after few years from the ending of the world war II, Lino Pierazzo decided he was going to open a restaurant in the heart of Venice, between S.Marco square and Rialto bridge; starting with just his wife as a cook, he succeeded in making it one of the most popular restaurant of Venice. About fifty years later, his son and daughter keep on his work with a modern group of waiters and cooks.

“Fab food and very reasonable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

The staff were really friendly, the food was delicious. Although it was busy we did not feel rushed. There was nothing I didn't like we really enjoyed our evening

“Ok- nothing more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012 via mobile

The inside is cold and not very pleasant, light bulbs too close and blinds you. The lassgne was ok, chicken breast dry. Too expensive. Waitress was really nice though :)

“Tourist trap-overpriced”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

Red flags - asked the waiter for recommendations and he said "everything"
Menu was in English with pasta described as " noodles"
Only tourist in restaurant
Having over cooked vegetables on secondi plates.

Pasta was overlooked, sea food was not fresh tasting ...........price was too high for meal, waitress was friendly

Worst meal we had Venice.

This restaurant was suggested by our Hotel and we enjoyed every minute of dining here. They have an amazing array of seafood and everything that we ordered was just delicious.
