“Great place to relax in a Venice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

Hidden next to a back canal, you can comfortably sit down and have a glass of Bellini while watching the day goes by. A bit distributing with all the people passing by if you sit on the outside though but it is bearable. Haven't tried out their food yet but menu looks promising.

“Excellent place for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

Stopped for lunch (2 adults and 2 children) here after passing all the 'tourist' trap restaurants near St. Mark's Sq. Great service, great food (I had excellent sea food pizza but fish looked lovely) and lovely wine (they do Barolo by the glass). Fairly pricy but matches Venice overall and quality is commensurate with price. We sat outside by canal on a warm April day so atmosphere lovely too. Would definitely come here again.

“DON'T EAT HERE!! Sly Sly Sly.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014 via mobile

This place charges a service charge AND a gratuity charge. How many tourists eat here and fall into the trap?! Don't eat here, as it's a rip off. Food is ok, but what a palaver the waiter made of filleting a fish at our table,(a job I could have completed in seconds, but which took him minutes.) No doubt part of the theatrical nonsense in order to justify TWO service charges. We let him get away with it because we thought "what the hell", but this place is mediocre and the intelligent tourist won ' t eat here twice.

“Nice little place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014 via mobile

We stopped by here for lunch and sat outside on the canal. The food was great and at reasonable prices. We loved the view of the canal and watching the boats go by. The service was great as well.
