“Excellent service and decent food at a reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

Went here for lunch. The food was tasty, we shared a pizza and then had a pasta each, prices were between E8-12 for both pizzas and Pastas. Serving sizes were more than reasonable we neither of us having room for dessert. They also have several glasses of wine on the menu for E3-5 each.

The highlight of the meal was definitely the service. The waiter was quite entertaining sharing several jokes with customers.

Unfortunately we went in February so the seating in the courtyard was not out, but it looked like it would be very nice to eat pi there in the summer.

“Magical surprise in a quiet back street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

We had spent three HECTIC days in Venice, after which we were exhausted.
We had some luck finding really great food in Venice, but most was lacklustre, expensive and we were thoroughly fed up with rude, impatient, contemptuous "Service". On our next-to-last evening in Venice we went wandering through San Polo and were winding our way back to our hotel through quiet back streets. Imagine our amazement when we popped out of a quiet street to a little canal with a little square set with ten tables under umbrellas, a cheerful waiter who invited us in and the most magical atmosphere.
It was a little early for dinner and we had planned something special so we kept walking but after a few blocks we turned back.
This was the loveliest meal we had in Venice. Quiet, pretty, delicious food modestly priced and FRIENDLY SERVICE! The waiter made us feel at home, made time to chat (easy enough to do when there are only 10 tables. I believe complimentary Limoncello at the end of a meal is customary - but a custom only observed by this one little taverna.
We arrived at 6pm, left at nearly midnight and had a truly memorable, magical, romantic evening and felt for once we were IN Venice.

If ever in Venice again we will return - that is a promise.
