Lovely, simple but good quality venetian food, warm welcome. Octopus salad, lasagne, chicken milanese, great steaks.... everything felt home cooked and traditional. Love Venice and this place!

My wife had the seafood lasagne and I had squid mixed with spaghetti cooked in squid ink. Both meals were superb.

We sat in a courtyard at the back with plenty of light and space. The food was simple and wholesome, the specialty being fish. I had the pesto spaghetti which was excellent, my wife had a delicious fish lasagna. Locals use this place.

When food tastes as it should- ask for nothing else. Nothing is masked by heavy seasoning- the flavors of all the vegetables make it a celebration in the mouth. Beyond that, they made a special effort to accommodate my vegan diet. Super tasty vegetable soup,...More
