“Nice restaurant near San Marco”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Visted here based on Tripadvisor reviews and was steps from our hotel. Very busy! I had made reservations early in the afternoon as we were passing it enroute to hotel. The "owner"? did not write down my name, but claimed he'd remember me...which he did. We went to the head of a long waiting line and were seated and served immediately. Food was good, staff friendly. My only caveat is that they were jammed and had a long waiting line, so the meal was rushed. I wanted to order the risotto, but was told the prep time was too long and they could not do it that night.

“What a comforting dinner after a long trip!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

We had arrived after being en route from the US.......We wanted cozy, Italian, and casual. Got it all. The gnocchi, delicious, the spinach in butter, terrific, and the roasted rosemary tomatoes....totally perfect. We are still talking about this dinner.....a week later.!

“Characterful but small”
Reviewed October 21, 2013 via mobile

...and busy at lunch time. Very efficient but frenetic service, so don't expect a leisurely lunch, they want you out ASAP...the gondoliers eat here as do many other locals. Just a bit wacky, but great atmosphere.

“Average at best”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Very crowded so we thought we'd try due to the popularity. Lacks ambience and the food is just average (too salty as well). What was most disappointing were the portions - quite small.

“Terrible”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

It was a terrible experience for us. After waiting for a long time to be seated, they led us to a 6-person table together with two other couples and we had to seat very tightly.
The food was also very awful. The fish lasagna dish did not contain any fish but some small pieces of shrimp (or other kinds of similar sea foods) and had no good taste.
The vegetable dish was completely cold and nothing special.
