Beautiful place, delicious food and kind service. I can't find other adjectives to define this restaurant. Me and my family have got a really nice hour here, they even give us the table when they were full of reservation. Great.

A little authentic restaurant, easy to locate with welcoming staff. Having been wandering Italy for 9 days, waiting for the “amazing” Italian food experience, I finally found it here, in the form of Carbonara. It is without a doubt the best I’ve ever had. I’m...More

Our second or third time here - amazingly the server remembered my husband from our last visit 15-16 months before. A delicious fish sampler platter and very good pasta. My gnocchi were clearly homemade and pillowy soft. Good value. Can’t wait to return!

The food was pretty good, but there are better choices for food and atmosphere. There were flying bugs (fruit flies, Mosquitoes?) around. Kinda dark and nothing to look at. Wine was really good and at a good price.

When in Venice, you should eat where the Venetians eat and this is what we did. After a wonderful gondola ride, we went to this establishment as this was where our Gondolier ate. It was busy so we had to wait for a table and...More

Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob
