This restaurant was recommended by several sources and did not disappoint. Glorious food, attentive but not annoying service, charming setting. The perfect last dinner in Italy before flying home.

Tucked away from high tourist traffic, the restaurant is worth finding. Our entrees were quite good. My dessert was to die for.

We stumbled across this restaurant when looking for somewhere to eat so we had no pre-conceived views about it before the meal. It is a more refined dining experience than osterias or trattorias and is priced accordingly. The ambience was good, the decor pleasant and...More

When we went to Venice for honeymoon, we went to this restaurant for dinner. We could have a great time for dinner because food and waiter was soooooo good:) we talked a lot!

San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the
Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six
sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest
neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the
markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops
display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San
Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi)
stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San
