“Good for a sandwich”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

This is not a place to enjoy a meal, but it is good place to stop for lunch if you just want a panini or pizza slice. There is a standing room bar and some very close seating. The Italians were having their coffee etc. at the bar and the tourists were sitting! It's always good to see Venetians eating where you're eating! It costs a little more to sit but we are not accustomed to standing while we eat. We shared a panini, a pizza slice and a small bottle of wine. We played it too safe ordering our panini--just procuitto and cheese. Some looked really good but we weren't sure what to order. The price was reasonable. We didn't feel rushed, but it's not the type of place where you would want to linger-too busy.

“Just average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

Our first meal in Venice. I myself decided on the carbonara whilst my partner decided on the tomato pasta. My carbonara turned out to taste like easy mac, whilst my partner only giving her pasta an average score. We both got a latte which was really nice, alongside a croissant. This alongside a really attentive staff member managed to save this from the 2/5 score. We also paid more than we expected.

“Sandwiches and pigeons”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

The place was ok. A sandwich place with good coffee. Very much an Italian place. One of our waiters was a very handsome guy and the one that attended us a very ugly and fat one. :) Very Italian and great for a brunch.

Just beware of the pigeons. The hosts seem to allow pigeons to enter their small place. One of the flew over us and crashed in the window just in front of our coffee. Not a nice thing to see (specially if you don't like this ugly flying things).

“Great Coffee!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Busy thoroughfare & cafe but great atmosphere. Handy for breakfast & a cheaper alternative to some of the whopping prices being charged for breakfast at the hotels. Good choice for lunch & a table outside if you can grab it!

“It's Italy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

Countering the other reviewers we gave it a try and ate panini for lunch in this place. What is rude for others to us was just Italian and it was courteous enough. One thing it wasn't was pretentious but the price was according to that.

Trust the locals wherever you go, they say, and there were a lot in here.

One funny thing is that pigeons sometimes join you in the inside of the bar but they are also everywhere and they'll be kicked out in no time.
