We spotted this place slightly to the side of the shops and opted for lunch. The waiter was friendly but didn't speak any English as we wanted to relax with drinks for a bit before ordering food. Regardless, we ordered the ravioli and clams spaghetti. Both meals were tasty but the ravioli abit on the smaller size portion-wise, but was... More

We stopped in on July 14 for a late lunch. The seafood pasta was the best I have ever had--lots of fresh seafood with a light touch on the pasta/sauce. You could sit inside (with the AC) or outside; we opted for the latter--very nice view of the water and passers by. We really liked this restaurant--the waiters were very... More

We had a nice shady table on a platform over the canal, and a very nice lunch (ravioli with meat sauce and spaghetti with clams).

Nice location but overpriced and the service was not god. The food wasn't bad but nothing special. We had spagetti pomodoro and spagetti con bottarga.

If you would like to enjoy a relaxed, canal-side lunch, make a stop here. Seems to be a pretty popular spot so be patient and relax. Food was delicious, sea gulls provided some entertainment as they also enjoy the food. Prices are good considering where you are sitting and every dish we saw come out looked good. Enjoy!

There are numerous eateries along the waterway. We decided to have lunch at Trattoria ai Frati. In retrospect of was the wrong decision. The food was okay, location was excellent, but the service and atmosphere was lacking. The prices were acceptable - the spaghetti with meat sauce was €10.50 and the beers were €4.50 each. I would try one of... More

Had a good meal and good service here with friends. I had some great ravioli with lettuce, tomato and carrot (the little shreds that I love) salad! Nice wine, too. Lovely views from the canal-side tables.

Ai Frati offers a varied, delicious menu with the spinach/ricotta ravioli being a personal favorite! Tirimisu is homemade and delicious. Restaurant closes early, so don't expect to indulge in a late dinner here.

Ordered the same things for lunch all three times! How weird is that? For me the pasta and calamari served in its own ink (think black food, with frequent dabs at lips with napkin to keep them from turning black--one of the best dishes in Italy and at al Frati, incredible. For my wife, fettuccine al vongole (clams)--also superb. The... More

A perfect place for lunch by the canal, if you do not mind waiting a bit as service is a bit slow. Don't get thrown off when you are given a menue in multiple languages, it is really not that touristy after all. Family run restaurant with very tasty food! We had three different pasta dishes and they were amazing!... More
