As we are finding usual, the meal was just ok. Small portions, big dollars (or Euros). Staff was friendly and the garden seating was pleasant. If its all about the food, then perhaps this is not the place for you.

The food was very common and the menu was boring and routine. Mixed salad was good as was the spaghetti bolognese. Lasagna was too creamy and bland. Credit to the waiter my daughter glass of Prusecco was flat and he replaced it no questions asked...More

Just off ST Marks Square this takes some finding but the food and service are excellent. It is intimate rather than spacious and the menu is good value. House specials well worht trying and staff speak good english

We were the only Americans in this warm, friendly restaurant. Our waiter, Fabio, was terrific and recommended wonderful Venetian dishes: spider crab (just like Blue Crab); glorious seafood (clams, shrimp & mussels) rissoto -- spectacular; baked bream. Lovely dinner in an all-locals ristorants. Sublime.

We enjoyed our dinner here. We were hesitant based on prior reviews. Caprese salad contained delicious fresh mozzarella. We liked the veal scallopine with lemon sauce, seafood risotto and spaghetti carbonara. Desserts were not so good. Tiramisu was fine but chocolate cake and caramel flan...More

The restaurant is bigger than it looks from its frontage, going back into a pleasant, part covered garden. It's quite busy, so best to book unless you eat earlier than the italians

As stated by someone else, great location, food is low quality compared to any local Italian place in the States, and really bad compared to the great food across Italy. Service was good but they rush to turn tables which is disappointing. Great location, good...More

First off - this is one of the few restaurants in Venice with a nice garden and large outdoor dining area. If you are feeling claustrophobic - or a yearning for some green space - its a good spot for that. Service was, as we...More

Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob
