Went around 5.15 one afternoon after a hard day's sightseeing. The place gave all the signs of being open but when we sat down the waiter finished his fag before strolling over with a menu. Surly does not do him justice. More people came in and another waiter appeared with the same attitude. Our guy brought the food and wine like he was doing us a huge favour. Food was tasty but tiny portions, big surprise when the waiter brought the bill with a big smile - did he expect a tip? He didn't get one!

Nice traditional restaurant that specialises in fish. The fish soup was especially good as was the homemade pasta

After hours of walking around Venice the proprietor was okay with us dropping by for just a drink. Many others wouldn't so we enjoyed taking a load off for a bit. Not able to comment on food. Wine and beer were fine and a good place to watch people from!

We ate here twice on our visit to Venice and on both occasions we had a delicious meal. First time we had the risotto with seafood to share and it was divine. Price was 25 Euro but that was for both of us. We both loved it and it was the best one we have had in Italy. The second time hubby had the pasta with seafood and I had the pasta with beans and also a side of grilled calamari. We again were impressed and loved it. No complaints from us and the service was equally great....

We have just returned from a fabulous trip to Venice and went to this restaurant on our last night. The food was ok and the prices were reasonable compared to the rest of Venice. My partner ordered a coffee and a brandy to finish off the meal and no sooner had these been put on the table than they advised us that they were closing early and started putting the chairs on the tables and told us we had to leave as their boat was leaving in 20 mins. Whilst I do not begrudge anybody closing early if it is quiet or indeed wanting to get home I just dont understand or appreciate them not telling us this before we ordered the drinks and then so rudely throwing us out onto the street with my partner having to down his brandy like a shot of tequilla !
