If you fancy an authentic meal and are prepared to step out of the tourist area then this is the place to eat. My friend and I had just arrived in Venice and settled into an apartment about 50 yards away. We were tired so went to the first restaurant we came to and what a lovely meal we both had. Mine was gnocchi with scallops in pistachio sauce and my friends scampi based. I cannot fault the meal, service or friendliness of the staff. We sat in the warm evening sun beside a small canal and it was a lovely experience.If you can please give them a try and I'm sure you'll enjoy your meal as much as we did. There is a cover charge of 2.5 euros per person but don't let this put you off.
