Definitely not the standard tourist type place. Old fashioned style (even with a live pianist), very attentive staff (slightly over attentive at times if anything from Mustafa - for two women eating together. I was there with my daughter). It was the last night of...More

The very best food we have had on our European travels. Fresh, cooked to perfection, and the sauces are delicious. Outstanding service by Moustafa and Nazzereno, made the entire evening delightful.

We wanted to enjoy a quite dinner off the noisy streets. This restaurant was a delight. The staff was professional, and pleasant. Angelo and Michele were exceptional servers. Their menu and wine recommendations were very good. My only regret is that our travel companions wanted...More

We found it by chance in the evening whilst walking from Fundamente Nuove water bus stop trying to avoid the busy and more expensive Rialto Bridge area and trying to keep to "Venice on a budget" attempt !!. We were getting lost and getting hungry.....It...More

We had dinner after a workshop, six of us, pre-paid as it was a business meeting. Preset menu, which was OK though not exceptional. The waiters pushed for wine, and when were having the fourth bottle of wine opened, the waiter said that only six...More

Splendid setting and service. We visited on my birthday while spending a day in this most beautiful city. The seafood soup was spectacular. The appetizer of cod and polenta an intriguing combination, separately delicious, together maybe not so much? The grilled vegetables mostly good, except...More

You have to be careful in Venice as there are no shortage of tourist traps where they just want your money and you don't get service. We stumbled across this little restaurant and thought it looks nice, let's try it later, and we are glad...More

It was really nice. With two families we ate an excellent risotto and even better tiramusu. Great. Excellent service.

The restaurant is well appointed. We were greeted with a complimentary ?bucks fizz made with prosecco. We opted for a risotto with white truffle to start and it was excellent. My wifes main course of fillet steak with gorgonzola was cooked as requested (rare) but...More

Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district)
with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many
transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying
areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand
for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal
bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution,
2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli
Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby
