We found this restaurant a bit by accident, but was positively surprised! Friendly staff, and excellent food! All the pasta is homemade and cooked as it should; al dente. The portions are reasonable (nice for someone like me who can never finish her plate). I had the sabaione semifreddo for dessert, wow! So good😊

Food was excellent here! We were a little unsure of the Lumpia starter. But that was due to our own taste. We ate it and enjoyed it! For the main I had the fritto misto ... Excellent! My boyfriend had a piece of grilled fish. Nothing was left on our plates and was accompanied by a excellent bottle of Sauvignon... More

We enjoyed our visit and the attention given to our table. It was lovely to dine with no children running around or background noise but I had to ask myself was it worth the money for what we had at 110 Euros against some other very good restaurants in the area. Don't get me wrong this is not a pizza... More

Three of us ate during a two week break in jesolo, & although in that time we ate out every night this definitely stood out as a highlight of the trip. Not the cheapest in the area but good mix of dishes with some interesting twists, service was excellent, staff friendly. Definitely worth checking out if you find yourself in... More

The childrens food was very good - nice taste and enough to eat. We chose the fish - tiny portions (even for an elegant restaurant...), but ok food. All organic, but with these small portions at this price I do not recommend this restaurant.

The title says everything! Best food during the vacation. The restaurant offers Michelin star worth tasting, it's not typical Italian pizza pasta place. It's the experience for those, who love something special.

Nice to start, owner got 4 into busy restaurant. Starter was amazing and I asked to share with my wife, so they plated up separately. Kids menu also good. Proper food. Fish was great.

Went here after having been at a number of other restaurants in lido do Jesolo. We found the menu not much different from other restaurants- what was different was how it was served-more emphasis on presentation and creativity- which we admire BUT.... Do note we have eaten in Michelin starred restaurants and pub grub places aka seen a lot of... More

This is top notch 100% fantastic. Best fish I have eaten in 5 years. I would suggest michelin class. The fish grill was superb. Lovely ambience good service. Bit dearer than nearby but you are paying for a high quality meal. I am talking Rick Stein quality. Bravo!!!!
