We loved sitting on the patio and experiencing the local culture! Food and drinks were excellent! The location awesome! Loved getting away from the hustle and bustle of Venice. This was a great alternative! Family friendly!

If you are near Sant'Antonio, it's about a 10 minute walk to Zairo. Lots of outdoor seating as well as indoors. Great food at reasonable prices. And the view is great
