“Great seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

We found this Place when tracking down the Laudrette, one of the few self serve laundrettes in Venice. The menu caught our attention as it had some interesting variations. The food was excellent the service was friendly and efficient dessert a little basic but we had a great night.
Give this one a go, and do your laundry while you enjoy the food.

“Happy accident”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

We came here accidentaly because we were screwed over by Alle Testiere on our reservation. A very nice man talked us into coming in. The service was the best we had received in Venice so far after 4 days. We had the bruscheta, tuna tartare, and lobster with spaghetti. All were excellent. Highly reccomend!

“Excellent meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Our group of 8 was actually on our way to a different restaurant only to find it wasn't open yet and wouldn't be for another hour. We walked around a bit and like some of the others we were politely asked if we were eating. We were quite hungry at the time so we all said, "why not" and went in. My meal was very good. I enjoyed my caprice salad followed by pasta arrabiata and chicken with mushroom courses. No one in our group had any complaints. The service was attentive and the prices were reasonable. I'm ot sure why European restaurants don't like giving seperate checks but this was also the case here so other than some time spent divying up the costs we were all satisfied. I know some people can be put off by owners fishing for business but I wouldn't have a problem returning there for another meal. Give it a try.

“Excellent dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

We entered this Restaurant on seeing the sign Trip Advisor. We had the best meal in Venice. My wife had sea bream whereas I had Monk fish. This was complimented with a bottle of good wine. The atmosphere in the restaurant was very nice and even had a chat with the owner.
