“great place for good food and good service”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Very near our Hotel Palazzo Barbarigo in San Polo. Had two great lunches. When we returned for second lunch greeted as family member. Ate in garden room which was very pretty and relaxing. Had same waiter both times. Liked him so much we took his photo and he took several pictures of us behind their bar and at our table. The BEST pasta dish I had in Venice. Reasonable prices. Wish we had this restaurant in Philly.

“Do not make the same mistake!”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Last night in Venice called for a little extra for the whole family. Based on reviews here on tripadvisor we choose Trattoria Da Ignazio, and what a waste. 2 sirloin steaks, pasta with fish and a lasagne for our youngest member all failed the test. Normally you would expect the waiter to ask how the steaks should be. Normally you would expect the recommended wine to be without cork and in a bottle that was not dirty and greasy. Normally you would expect portions that would take more than 2 minutes to clear. Normally you would expect the salad to be at least fresh and perhaps consist off more then just dry leaves and tomatos that have seen better days. And normally you would not expect the kitchen staff to run to and from the local supermarket every third minute in dirty plastic approns through the restaurant. Have at least the courtesy to take the back door. Add all that with an incompetent waiter and completely tasteless food, and you will have a very bad last impression of this fantastic town. The disaster was so complete, especially when you pay the bill, that we at least had to laugh at the end. DONT make the same mistake. The alternatives are nearby and sooo much better!

“Relaxing ambience”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

We had dinner on a Sunday night, and the restaurant seemed to be filled with locals who were greeted by name. We had very good service and yes, the oldest living waiter may be working here! Every course from appetizer to dessert was tasty, and I felt the price was right for the quality and quantity of food. I had the house white and my husband had the house red, both okay wine for the price. If you want to get away from the noise and crowds, this restaurant was quiet and restful.

“decent dinner on a monday”
Reviewed May 13, 2013 via mobile

had a decent dinner Monday 13/May.
liked: prosciuto antipasta and the seafood misto main course, the house white wine, 'garden' setting, service (not too busy night).
could be better: the baby octopus (too fishy taste) and the beef tenderloin (tender, but not much taste), and the house red wine.
ok: price (eur 100 for 2 people)
summary: was ok, nothing extraordinary

“Well worth a visit in summertime”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

Hidden somewhere in San Polo, on the main passage from Piazzale Roma to Rialto, the trattoria has a wonderful garden where you are simply disconnected from the usual tourists crowd and noise.

Linen tablecloths, quality dinnerware and surprisingly good service form the oldest waiter I ever been served by or, as a matter of fact, ever seen; the food is more than good and you can almost see it cooking since the kitchen has large windows opening to the garden's back alley.

At a cca.30 Euros/person for an appetiser, main and some house wine its doesn't come cheap but, to be honest, neither expensive considering the location, the service and the food.

Nice experience, worth a try if you can locate it easily.
