Did you know that Inspector Brunetti eats here? We had forgotten although we have read all the Donna Leon mysteries. More importantly, we had a memorable meal there. Are you in a hurry?
Forget this place. Are you with good friends and like to chat between course? And do you want as good seafood as can be found in Venice? Come here. Make a reservation. Small place with 7-9 tables. One seating at lunch. Maybe two at dinner. My wife and I are foodies. I have been to Venice many, many times but have never eaten as well as we did here. They have a website BTW.
We had excellent polpetti, gnochetti in a cinnamon sauce, grilled sea bream and the best little monk fish this side of fisherman's heaven. O Dio it was good. With lots of wine our bill was only about $60. per person. With quality like this, we would pay more. I envy the Venetians who can visit once a week. The other eaters were Italians except for a decadent old British ex-pat next to us. A few words of Italian are a big help.
