We ate here one evening,it was very busy but we found a table for two.I had fish of the day which came with small roast potatoes
and pasta.It was very good but there was too much and I had to leave some pasta.my wife had a salmon dish which she finished.It was noticeable that a lot of people were leaving with a
'doggie bag' which suggested to me that the portions were too large.It was the top end or our price range and was not helped by a minimum tip suggestion of 18%/25%/33%.I have no objection to tipping 12%-15%,but not to their suggestion.Not a restaurant I
would return to.

We had two pizzas delivered which cost $36 and were basically inedible and bore no ressemblance to the thin, tasty pizzas we remembered ordering in the summer. The pizzas were doughy, undercooked and tasteless. After having a slice each, the rest went promptly into the bin.

This is a fun place, with great food at a very reasonable price. The owners are there making sure you are satisfied and they work hard pleasing every customer. This is one of the better restaurants in Venice.

Basic pizza place. Ordered 4 dishes, ravioli, pasta bolognese, chicken parm sandwich, veal parm sandwich. Bread used for the sandwiches was dense and hard, not edible, both the chicken and veal were burnt. The pasta dishes weren't bad but nothing to write home about. The server was very nice but the owner(?) had attitude. They add 18% tip (a bit high for a pizza joint) if you eat in for parties of 4 or more. It is understandable that they add the tip being it is a tourist area but it is not stated anywhere and they do not mention it. You get to figure it out when you get your check. Didn't mind tipping, food wasn't impressive, attitude not needed. Overall experience, not worth repeating.
