“Not for ordinary tourists”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

If you are looking for tomatoes with every service and pizza it is not for you ! If you want to discover an outstanding Italian cuisine at a reasonable price, dont miss this small, not very busy, not very animated restaurant. Few tables (8 exactly) mostly occupied by locals, no music, not a trendy place but amazing quality food !! We tried several dishes, all were excellent, the best was their baby octopus in black ink and cinnamon.... Incredible !! Great wine list at acceptable price, very friendly staff who speak good english and French. You will be far from the crowed terraces on the canals but you will remember your evening and your meal. Approximatively 100 Euro for two with an excellent wine.

“Fresh seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

Newly opened seafood restaurant. Has overtaken a prior establishment (tearoom). Fresh seafood of all sorts. You can eat chicheti (small nibbles) at the bar, or have a full meal. Fish was fresh and flavorful with innovative sauces. Nice selection of other seafood as well with both traditional and modern preparations. Reasonably priced. Very friendly wait staff. Opens at 7 but doesn't really get busy until about 8. Small room and not a lot of tables, so I would book a table if you don't want to be disappointed.
