“Very cool”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

I absolutely loved this place. It's rare in Venice to find a group of people doing something innovative with food. It's slightly unstable in terms of execution--not every dish is perfect!--but they deserve all five stars for being charming and original. It absolutely classes with the young restaurants in Rome and Brooklyn who are trying to do something cool and new. And the staff is delightful. Expensive, obviously, but you know, you can pay 5 euros on the street for terrible coffee, so, what can you do.

“A place for food lovers”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

This is an outstanding restaurant, the place to go if you want something which is more like a gastronomic meal. The menu was really interesting, with a variety of Venetian specialities. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, offering good advice. They also serve small glasses of wine, which means you can easily have a glass of red and a glass of white if your food requires it (I had some pasta with meat as a primo piatto and fish as the secondo piatto). It is not cheap, but really worth it for the quality of the food.

“Great small restaurant!”
Reviewed December 24, 2012 via mobile

Away from the main tourist areas. Very, very good food; starter, main course and desert, all to die for! Good service and very friendly. Mid to higher price range, but definitively worth it!

“A Cut Above”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

We enjoyed a fine family dinner here (8 of us, 5 to 70 yrs. old). Although not cheap (little is in Venice), the food was very good and the outside seating comfortable. Reservations recommended.
