First time in Chioggia and luckily we found this restaurant. Rarely I gave full rate but this time it worth. We had 2 starter, mixed raw fish and mixed boiled fish. Both were very nice. Then we had 2x tagliolini mixed molluscs and this was amazing. All dishes were perfectly served and prepared. 1 glass of bottled wine, water and... More

Late in the evening random choice after a very long day in Venice, but as soon as I saw the kitchen it was obvious this was a cut above the rest. Chefs in hats and whites concentrating hard on their task. You got the feeling they were very professional indeed at what they were doing. I just had a Spaghetti... More

this is really a fantastic place, food is simple but so fresh. we got oysters and mussels as starter and different pasta courses (and a dessert) just fantastic. the oysters are as good or maybe better than in normandy mussels - same and innovative, creative and fantastic pasta wine is fine, local and quite inexpensive

We went to this restaurant because our cycling holiday guide recommended it - what a delight. The food was absolutely stunning, fresh, tasty, wonderful. No menu to look at as everything is cooked according to what's fresh that day. The waitress, who we think was the chef's daughter, was charming and talked us through the whole menu, suggested wine, chatted... More

We went there with high expectations after having read about your visits. It started out fine but ended bad. I was very clear about that I wanted the fish filleted. And the waitor promised that he would arrange that. The fish came (15 min after the vegetables) and it was whole and nothing close to filleted. I ate just a... More

I have been several times at this restaurant and it's always a pleasure. Great seafood quality, elegant presentation, pleasant-looking dining room. I prefer to go at lunch time because it's quieter and chef armido has more time to turn on his charm! The restaurant also has a lovely outdoor space in a typical calle, right in the historical center of... More

Following trip advisor recommendations we tried out this restaurant because of the good rating but we were very disappointed. Indeed it was the worst culinary experience in Chioggia. First of all the waiter forgot our wine order and it was served right to the main course without any apologies. During meal we were not asked to refill our glases although... More

Had a great quiet lunch on the outside terrace 100 meters from the main street. Good food but maybe a bit pricy, probably due to the location.

Enjoyed a most wonderful meal here. The owner/chef and waitress were very attentive to all of the customers, who were from Germany, the Netherlands and us. The sea bass that I had was exquisite - It was a large whole fish - simply grilled served with baked vegetables of potato, tomato and zucchini- superb in its simplicity. The fish did... More
