Nice spot with indoor and outdoor sit-in in the inner paths of the Venice center at the tiny piazza. A little bit pricey but worth it. Food is tasty, freshly made with oriental spices note.

I had an incredible meal, and it was a beautiful, quiet escape inside of Venice! I would highly recommend this place for some genuinely amazing food. Our waiter was also very kind.

Stopped for a drink having trawled the lanes of Venice ended up having dinner and so glad we did.
Fantastic food and great service nothing was too much trouble was made to feel very welcome.
Sat outside in the courtyard enjoying the food,drink and afternoon sun, at no stage were we made to feel hurried.
Well worth a visit to Ae Sconte albeit for food or a relaxing drink.

We had antipasti to start which was fine then the seafood risotto which while pleasant tasted no different to what we cook at home midweek - so we felt a bit disappointed- tiramisu was quite large and filling so you may want to consider sharing a portion

**January 2020 Visit** We were recommended this restaurant by the staff at our hotel and I am so glad we were! It’s slightly tucked away so the directions we were given were very helpful, but it’s easily found with google maps also. The service is professional, attentive and warm, with staff that know their produce. The interior is classic, cozy, elegant and sophisticated. The menu is varied, with some lovely authentic Venetian dishes and I’d say price-wise, middle of the range.
We were treated to complimentary bread and Prosecco to begin, then I had a steak with creamy peppercorn sauce and diced roasted potatoes, and my husband had spaghetti with seafood, washed down with a Demi bottle of Pinot Grigio. The steak was like butter and the sauce was beautiful. Potatoes were light, fluffy and crispy. The seafood pasta was a generous portion and coated in a rich, slightly spiced sauce. Perfection.
To follow we had a Tiramisu (of course!) and again it was faultless. Light, creamy, not too heavy on the liquor and all the right hints of coffee. Complimentary Limoncello to end from our wonderful waiter, Luca, who was an absolute pleasure to talk to after our meal.
It was a fantastic evening, far removed from the restaurants that cheapen themselves by accommodating the tourists and end up being uncomfortably packed, sub standard and soul-less. We will be back one day!! Thankyou Ae Sconte.
