This small place is for people who understand something about the food.
Very fresh and not expensive in contrary of the some restaurants on piazzas..

In a city where good food is at a premium, this place stands out, and the decor and ambiance match it. The place is smallish, but feels cozy rather than cramped because of how the tables are positioned. You will most definitely need a reservation there - we were lucky to snatch the last table at 7pm on saturday, but after that, throngs of people were turned away. The octopus salad was fantastic, especilly considering how often we see ruined octopus dishes. We also had the specials of fillet of bronzino and rosemary beef. Both were exquisite. The house wine is not particularly good, but at 6 euro for half a bottle, we were not complaining. The prices are uppish - specials were 19 and regular mains 12 while portions were not large, but the quality is excellent.

This restaurant has just the right balance. Price, quality of food and service, atmosphere, it's all there. It's small and full of Venetian flavour. It's one of those places wherever you sit you feel very comfortable, very cosy. We spoke to the staff in French and English, you are taken care of here and you are made to feel very welcome.
The menu was full of Venetian dishes, there were lots of exciting things to choose from. You just can't be disappointed here!

We had a delicious full late meal here, and weren't disappointed! We went with the specials of the day, and found them excellent. Great value on the fried fish plate, which seemed like what everyone was ordering. Get the Venetian biscuits with your coffee - they were great! Definitely make a reservation if you want the later seating - 9pm and later for weekends!

Great, place, reasonable prices, terrific specials, and cozy atmosphere. In a beautiful section of the city, which makes for a nice after-dinner walk.
