“So good we went twice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

We came across this restaurant by accident one lunch time whilst looking for a wine bar my cousin had read about and wanted to visit which we never found, thank goodness! We were given a light lunch menu and a 'heavy' menu to choose from which all sounded delicious. There were 4 of us and we wanted a bottle of prosecco, the sommelier was very helpful and suggested a very good 'profundo' which was so good we had another! The setting is lovely also as at the end of the lane is a canal and gondolas are passing by all the time. The food was all wonderful and we had such a good experience we booked to return the next evening. We sat outside again and were extremely pleased that we returned as everything was just as good as before, if not better! I really hope we can return again one day!

“Great Place for a Romantic Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

I had arranged in advance for a romantic dinner with my wife and they delivered over and above. We had a great table looking down to a small canal with a passing series of gondolas complete with singing echoing down the canal. The food was traditional 14th and 16th century Venetian - delicious .... would highly recommend a visit but plan in advance to make the most of it

“Best meal - possibly ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

We stumbled upon this restaurant our first night in Venice. We decided to eat there the last night of our honeymoon and were not disappointed. This was one of the best meals I have possibly ever had. My husband and I live in NYC and love to try new places and great restaurants. This one gave the best here a run for their money.

Definitely worth the splurge! Don't miss it!

“Excellent pasta and wine list”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Chose this restaurant because reviews of the cultural, romantic experience. We did not experience this. We were seated in the outside alley, no view. A prominently seafood menu did not suit our dining companions and in fact, our guest having chosen lamb, sent it back to the kitchen! Of the four of us, two would rate the meal excellent and two would say awful! We did agree that the staff were good and, in particular, the wine waiter was superb - interesting and knowledgable. I will score this place based on my personal experience but with the proviso that its not a place to suit everyone.
