“Wow, just WOW!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013 via mobile

My wife is on a constant diet (like so many other women). After one bite of their heavenly pastries she forgot all about her diet and demanded to stop each and every time we went by - and it was several times a day! Just go in and point to anything. It doesn't matter what you pick, it ALL tastes good!
And they are cheap too: you get lots
of cookies and two cappuccino for ?8. They have no tables though, you eat standing, or take away.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

We visited to try some of their pastries and they were magnificent and as a added bonus the price was reasonable. The service was good so i can't complain about that. The reason we wnt there was the food and it exceeded expectations. The best pastries in Venice and we tried many places!

“Glad we found this.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

To think we nearly settled for McDonalds.
Just stumbled on this place on a freezing cold morning in Venice. Ordered hot chocolate and some little cakes at random.
All gorgeous and just hit the spot! Obviously popular with locals too, people were constantly dropping in for their coffees and snacks

“Delicious for breakfast and amazing cakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Don't even think of having your breakfast in your hotel !. this is the place to enjoy a calories rich breakfast or just a coffee. Busy with locals having their daily doze of caffein and sugar, fresh pastries for all tastes. Friendly service.

“Great atmosphere, great espresso, great pasticceria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Walking by and wanted an espresso (€ 1,--). One of the best ever. Took some dolcetti (pastries) and I wanted to stay for ever. But the wife was on a windowshopping-tour, headin to the Rialto-bridge.....
The day after, I found this place again and there was my espresso (again!).
