I've been back to this hip, Thirty-somethings local eatery three times in as many months. I love the atmosphere. The staff are equally hip and friendly and more than just good looks, they know their business. Ask for a certain type of wine and you'll get a knowledgeable recommendation.
One thing bugs me about this trendy Venice eatery. Sure, it's really hip. I love the simple but warm decor. You'd have to go to Berlin or Stockholm to find anything remotely as simple but elegant as Axe. Wonderful, Gardner dining area. Love the lighting. I've never been for a romantic evening but Axe would tick the box. Bu I keep going back hoping the food will wow me. But I could name a 100 restaurants where my senses have felt indulged. To be fair, I think Axe has a highly inventive and exotic menu. I like Moroccan-esque cuisine and vegetable soups that border on stews. Brilliant but here (at Axe) it's bland. I'll keep coming back because the atmosphere is really buzzy. But I always feel like the eyes are being entertained with wonderful looking (and sounding) dishes but the taste buds are rarely satisfied. It's like health food that's good or you but somehow has to be bland. That said, the one thing I will say is amazing, is their deserts. Amazing deserts. And like the coffee in bowls.
