“I would definitely return”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Muro is a little off the beaten path in Venice which is a good thing. We had a great bottle of wine at a reasonable price. The salad arugula salad was terrific. We had a 4 cheese pizza which was certainly better than average. The service was attentive without be overbearing.
Dinner with 2 salads, a pizza to share and a good bottle of wine was under 60 Euros.

“Good enough to go back twice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

This restaurant was mostly used by locals but the welcome we got was warm. From the Aperitivo Muro, a prosecco and strawberry concoction to the final coffee everything was superb. The Tagliata was cooked beautifully was very tender and tasty, served with rocket. We also had fillet steak, gnocchi and a salad, all very good. On our second visit we had pizzas; these were exceptional. One was garnished with torn buffalo mozzarella after cooking and was fantastically creamy. The tuna fish pizza came with a thinly sliced fresh tuna in both smoked and unsmoked slices, looking like ham. We felt that this was a more modern take on classic italian cooking, cooked with great care (we watched the pizza chef twirling the dough to create the thin base) and far from the run of the mill normal selections. It was also very good value, with house wines named and only 7 euros for a half litre!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

We ended up at this restaurant just by coincidence and I'm really glad we did - sheer strike of luck. We had the ravioli and the three kinds of bruschetta for starter and I can highly recommend both of them - however the deep-fried ravioli was amazing. We both had pizza and I had the chef's special which was a wise choice - it was stuffed with basically everything tasty and italian: mozzarella, salami, capers, olives, Parmesan, rocket and so on. Unfortunately I couldn't finish my meal because it was so much food! We also had a caraff of beer. It all came up to about 50 euros. Would really recommend this place, we are going back there for pizza and dessert (as they had a fabulous dessert-menu that we were too full to try).

“Great find off the tourist track.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013 via mobile

Really modern and nice place. Good for very nice and very reasonably prices for Venice. Hard to judge service - waiter was ok but maybe he did not want to serve us cos his English was bad. I tried to speak Italian but this made it worse I think. Great steak and excellent wine.

“Great pizza, pleasant atmosphere, good value ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

We had a yen for pizza, looked through the TripAdvisor reviews and selected this restaurant. After a long day of walking around Venice, we were a little early for Italian tastes (1800) and found that they didn't open until 1900. We decided to have a couple of Ombre at a bar not far away and came back. We weren't disappointed: there's a wide selection of pizzas featuring a panoply of ingredients. The decor is modern and the staff are friendly. We paid 38EUR for two pizzas, a half-litre carafe of wine and water, which we felt was very good value.
