Having just flown in from the U.S., we ate relatively early on this Sunday evening...good thing or we would never have gotten a table. Quiet canal seating and wonderful starters: mussels and shrimp salad with a lemon salsa? side. Terrific. The hostesses/waitresses were happy to arrange a table for us. I had black squid and DH had a beef w/greens. A bottle of Lambrusco, water, total was about 100 Euros

Had dinner in this lovely restaurant, loved the setting on the edge of the canal, essential to book, it was Friday night and all but 3 tables were free,, lots of local people.

Although other dishes are offered in this minuscule restaurant, go for the pizzas as they are the best value for money. There is no indoor seating inside the restaurant, but covered seating in a 'marquee' outside. It is only seasonal opening - April-October only.

How to get here - get off Line 1 waterbus (Riva di Biasio stop nearest for the restaurant) and head for Campo S Giacomo dell'Orio. The restaurant is just off the square in Campiello Piovan.

There are bars in the square nearby, but the restaurant has a good wine list.

Nestled in a quiet picturesque "piazza" in the Santa Croce area, this canal side busy restaurant is the quintessence of Venetian dining. Attentive staff, comprehensive menu and food prepared very well add up to a wonderful romantic dining experience. Not the usual Venice tourist spot.

I try to come here every time I'm in Venice and I have yet to be disappointed. The setting is lovely, a quiet square and with a little canal to watch gondolas and other boats drifting by.
The pizzas are so good that I've never ordered anything else but there is a reasonable selection on the menu so something for everyone I imagine.
The staff are friendly and Il Refolo has a relaxed feel about it.
Our bill came to 44 euros for 2 pizzas, water, coke and a coffee.
Definitely book in the evenings but I've managed to walk in no problem at lunchtimes and they tend to continue serving pizza's quite late at lunchtime so good if you want to eat after 2pm. I've never had a bad experience here so really recommend it.
