“Service with a scowl”
Reviewed June 6, 2014 via mobile

This restaurant looks great from the outside- a varied menu, fresh produce as decoration and a bustling interior- sadly this is where the good experience ended. From the moment we were crammed into a corner by a disinterested waiter to when the plates were whisked away not fully finished, the meal was unenjoyable. Portions were reasonable but the flavour was bland (ravioli with pecorino) or overly salty (penne bolognese). Service was brisk to the point of rudeness; choose somewhere else.

“Lunch with the locals”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

Nice place for Venetian food rather than the same old pizzeria menu. We had Ribolito soup (vegetable soup with spinach and bread), cantaloupe with prosciutto, and mozzarella with tomatoes. When we arrived, we were given a table in the front room right at the kitchen - not good, busy area - so when we asked for a change they "allowed" us to sit in the back room, which is really a side room, but occupied only by the establishment's regular local diners. Made for a nice lunch and a break from the camera toting tourists (like us).

“Lunch - locals,dinner - tourists”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

Nice place close to the tourist attractions,next to the fashion district.
At lunch time one will find quite a lot of blue collar,local people with few tourists,at dinner time proportions are in reverse.Day specialities are written at the blackboard and and at handwritten pages in the menu.The food is simple,servings copious,service is friendly and prompt.The local specialities (ribolita,pappa al pomodoro,pasta of different shapes and sizes with wild boar sauce(s) and vegetables) are well prepared,but presentation is adequate for trattoria.Menu is fairly short,wine list does not contain Sassicaia,but is honest.At dinner time bookings are recommended,otherwise be ready for a que.
Bottom line - if you are bored with five star hotels and Michelin starred restaurants,this is a place to get refreshing air of real world.

“Overly salty, undercooked pasta”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Not a good value - penne was undercooked and so salty I could barely finish. Waitress was a bit short with us. Had a much better (and less expensive) meal in a nicer environment elsewhere
