It was our second visit after 3 years. As the time was short, we went to have a meal in this restaurant - and it was nice again, not overpriced, and real Venetian food. Our family preferred the seafood line, but there´re plenty of other dishes.
We arrived relative early (around 18.00), so we got a table without reservation on a Saturday in October, but later all the tables filled up and some people without reservation has been turned down.
And I love it when people asks always the same question: "What is polenta ???"

Definitely recommended! (The polenta too...)

I booked a table through Trip Advisors ‘the fork’ online booking - totally useless as the restaurant had no record of our booking nor the 20% discount.
The restaurant was busy, which meant service was slow as only one person seemed to be looking after the whole restaurant.
The bread was awful, very dry. Our starters of spaghetti carbonara and gnocchi with 4 cheese sauce were very average.
Our main courses of escalope alla Milanese and escalope with Madeira were uninspiring, certainly nothing special.
We’ve no idea how this place has so many great reviews for service as our waiter barely spoke to us.
For a far superior experience go across the canal to the newly opened Codega with excellent service and tasty food.

On our last day in Venice we vowed we couldn’t leave until we went back and ordered our favorite meal, one last time.
The chef knows how to not overlook veal. We ordered it in Marsala sauce and savored every bite.
This quaint eatery sits right on a canal. Diners can eat outside with the flowers and be served through open windows from inside or can be seated in a very lovely dining room. The owner will remember you and make you feel like the most important person in the room. He remembered our order details even we forgot to ask for.
He told us April and October were the best months when tourists thin out and the cold Rainey weather hasn’t settled in.
