This is a family managed restaurant that attracts a lot of locals so it would seem . The place was pumping one sunday lunch time and we could hardly get in . The service is old style, which means the waiters should have been pensioned off a number of years ago , they do an adequate job but seem to lack enthusiasm for their work.
The menu has many local fish and seafood dishes on offer so if you want to try some dishes as the locals do it , then here is the place. I had on one occasion the spaghetti vongole which was excellent. Also the fritto misto was as how it should be , mixed little fish lightly floured and crisp fried. Just a little lemon squeeze and its a perfect dish . Baked Rombo , turbot in english is always a favourite of mine in any restaurant...here you can have it baked or "ferri" ..i preferred it baked with potatoes. a good meal to share with friends.
I like the variety of the menu in this restaurant, the classic dishes come out well .... but don't expect anything fancy , its a basic trattoria serving local food with an owner/manager and staff who make you feel as if you are a little of an inconvenience and they would rather be somewhere else . Thats an "old" Italian attitude , enjoy it while you can still find it in little hidden away places .

“Good Food, efficient service with no smile”
Reviewed September 16, 2011

We chose this restaurant because it is off the main street Corso del Popolo of Chioggia and we saw a good number of locals going in. The restaurant is with simple but elegant decoration and they have a few tables outdoor.

They have a tasting menu of Є35 and Є45 respectively. The Є35 menu consist of mixed appetizer, shrimps and squids pasta, grilled seafood, vegetables, dessert and coffee. There are Lagoon shrimps with polenta, crab meat in shell, shrimp risotto, turbot fillet in oven with potatoes, homemade dessert and coffee in the Є45 menu.

Since we were having an early lunch, we only ordered the mixed seafood appetizer, crab meat in shell and fried calamari (squid). The seafood was very fresh and calamari was nicely done. (not too much flour and definitely not dry)

Service was efficient although there was a lack of smile from beginning to the end. It did not bother us as we wanted a quick and quality lunch before we took the ferry and bus back to San Marco.

If you were in Chioggia on a monday (like us) and wanted a nice and efficient lunch, this is the place to go.
