Our concierge recommended this restaurant when we asked for local seafood. The food was excellent and the home made pasta was amazing too. The building itself is beautiful!

A suggestion of our Venetian family. Hidden away from crowds, 2 min walk from Realto. Great atmosphere, service, and of course the food!

There's much better location in Venice. The fish was average and the pasta disappointing. Prices are for a tourist location but this restaurant was on an ordinary passage. Look around and find better.

The staff was friendly however the food lacked flavor. The appetizers were the best part of the meal; an interesting take on a caprese salad and eggplant parmigiana. Pasta courses were bland. We have had much better meals elsewhere.

The waiters are amazing. Lorenzo and Sami will take care of you very well and make from your lunch/dinner an Italian experience! We had such a great time here. And the food is amazing too!

Had a good meal here on our first night in Venice. It was a little hard to find in an alley. The frutte de mar had a great lemon flair to it that I've never experienced before. The rest of the food was certainly good....More

The pasta was a bit hard to eat & the price expensive, with cover charge of 5 euro per person. Service was okay.

Nice restaurant closed to Rialto bridge, but not in the main touristic route, not easy to find, but worth to look for. Outside tables are difficult to get, better reserve it. The pasta was very nice, I got a fusili with king prawns. My son...More

Very heavy food, too expensive and people fell sick after the dinner. I went there with my parents and friends.

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

When you land, go to the baggage claim area. There will be a desk to buy passes for either the Water Taxi's or Busses that will take you out of the airport. Very easy. Ask your hotel in advance what the exit is for both the... More
