“Maybe we expected too much?”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

I think this restaurant relied too much on its claim of being the oldest restaurant in Venice, personally. The food was pleasant enough but the staff looked as though they'd been called in on their day off! Surprised they didn't get the message that the polenta was rank, just about every plate was returned with polenta stacked up high on the edge of the plate. Had much better meals than this at the ostarias around town.

“Bit dated but enjoyed our meal”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

Wouldn't rush back but it was OK. Staff were friendly and food was edible.
Quite an enjoyable meal, tbh.
That was all we wanted having spent an hour trying to find another Trip Advisor recommended eaterie, without success.

“Not Great. Not Terrible.”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

We met some friends here for dinner. The restuarant is cute, obviously historical and steeped in history.

The staff didn't appear to be that interested in us as customers and could barely register interest when we asked for advice on ordering.

The food was good, we all had good meals. Not cheap though - probably about 60euro a head.

In fact it was that 'middle of the road' I am struggling to remember much about it to recommend.

“worth every penny”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

Steps away from the fish market, this charming restaurant serves fantastic seafood dishes. The mixed seafood antipasti were fresh and delicious as was the mixed platter of grilled fish for 5. I visit every year and have had better pasta dishes and dessert in other restaurants in this city. However, I have never eaten better or fresher fish.The waiters and staff were kind and professional and made this memorable meal a wonderful experience.

“Lousy service and possibly racist”
Reviewed April 22, 2012

They poured wine over my cellphone, threw the plates on the table and they didn't bother to change the plates for dessert. When confronted they didnt apologize and asked for a tip. We noticed that they were mean to other non Italians as well as we were not the only one who had bad service. Waiter was very rude and it was a very bad experience.

The pasta was ok,but parmaham was stale. Please read the other bad reviews and believe it.
