“Lovely Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

My daughter and I spent our last night on our Med trip at this lovely restaurant. We were there at about 7pm, and were surprised how vacant they were....maybe a little early for Italy dinners? We stumbled upon this location just by browsing through the streets near the Rialto bridge. Service was very attentive and pleasant. We weren't sure how to order, and we were guided through it somewhat. We started out with a nice cup of soup (not ordered, just appeared). Then we had our pasta choices...lasagna and carbonara w/ cheek....very yummy! Then we had our seafood entrees...sea bass and also Grilled Shrimp and Scampi. Both prepared a little different than what we are used to, but a good experience. Lastly, we were served a shot of Limoncello and some divine cookies. These weren't ordered either, but appeared when we declined dessert. Very, very nice cookies. We weren't sure if we got charged something extra for the items that we didn't order, but it didn't matter....it was all good, and it was our big splurge dinner of the trip. Prices were a bit pricey, but not unexpected. Overall, a very nice experience!

“Simply wonderful of the beaten track restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

We went to this restaurant as a quick bite as my wife was hungry, and we needed a late lunch.

Met lovely elderly waiter, he was pleasant, got my daughter a coloring book and pencils without being asked.

Food, prawns and brandy and mussels to start both simply stated as delicious.

Main course risotto with scampi and champagne. To die for....

Ok it is not a cheap meal, but an absolute contrast to the mistaken cheap food we had last night which left us totally disappointed.

Go it is wonderful, and quiet.

“Brilliant Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

We had not visited Venice before and therefore booked the restaurant in advance. It is near the Rialto an area that is very busy and as the restuarant is off the main streets and canals it was nice and quiet!

The service was excellent, and they have a vegetarian menu, although you will have to ask for it. The meal was brilliant - a sardine antipasto, followed by pasta with scallops, then a beef dish in a special Venice sauce.

It's not cheap at 60 euros /person, but I would recommend it to anyone who wants a nice meal in a quiet location, just off the main tourist areas.

“A nice and cozy restaurant in perfect location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

A nice and cozy restaurant in perfect location near Realto bridge in one of Venice romantic spots.
The food was tasty, and the service very kind, thanks to Nino.
We ordered two kinds if fish, which were very good, the starters and the desert were tasty as well.
Try it, and you won't regret.

“Great Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

This was a great find. It's that little Italian restaurant that's tucked away, and for good reason. There was hardly anybody there. You can tell it was family run by the photos on the wall, and the attention they give their guests. They had quite a few menu items that were traditional Venetian. We both ordered the risotto in squid ink. I can honestly say that was absolutely the best risotto we 'd ever had. It was beautifully presented, and had a wonderful unique flavor. Any time I visit a restaurant, and order a rice dish like paella or risotto; I always ask how long it will take to make. If they say anything under twenty minutes; I don't order it. It will take a few minutes to make, but that's how you know it hasn't been sitting under a heat lamp.
