We had lunch today and it was wonderful. The food was delicious and the staff was really nice. The owner came to our table and recommended some dishes. I was amazed by the freshness and the taste.

We were a party of 6 in July 2017 and were found a nice table outside. Service was excellent, and the food was good with some dishes very good. A small place that tries hard and is recommended.

We were just walking around looking for a local Osteria when we stumbled across Osteria Al Pozzo Roverso. Family owned with great service a well priced menu & wine list. The pasta dishes were all outstanding. Worth a visit when in Venice.

We had dinner at this restaurant during our first night in a Venice. They offered us 4 free aperitifs once we sat down. Dinner was brought out quickly and was of good quality. I would recommend this restaurant to others.

My partner and I came across this place by happenstance - it was one door down from the laundromat, and while we waited for our washing, we had a spritz or two! After seeing a spectacular looking meal arrive at a nearby table, we decided...More

within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over
one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime
neighborhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side

criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a

From Campos s. Maria Formosa, Castillo, take the exit over the bridge next to Palazzo Malipiero. Into Riga Giuffa. The Osteria is on the right very near the end. Enjoy
