Amazing venetian food and tapas ("cicchetti"). If you are in the mood for fish this is the place for you. Very good and typical, like a travel in time when restaurants had a personality (this surely has one)

After a day at Venice Island, we decided to not eat on the island, and tried out this place. The ambience is bustling. We ordered the food, found them very reasonably priced. Had a great time eating and chatting in the warmth of the restaurant.

This is a wonderful example of a popular, authentic Italian bar and restaurant. We went at lunchtime, and had the choice of bar snacks or table service. The bar snacks are incredible - squid, scallops, prawns, baccala which have been grilled or deep-fried to perfection....More

Definitely a local hangout. Minimal English spoken. Only serve tapas at night, no meals. If you speak Italian you'll be fine but we got so little help we eventually had to leave.

In December 2014 we drove to Venice and stopped in Marghera for lunch. And, what a lunch... surpassed all our expectations. I shall always remember this restaurant and will certainly recommend it to others. And surprise, surprise... when the time came to pay the bill...More

Non posso dare una risposta precisa, dipende da cosa mangi ovviamente. Potrei comunque dire indicativamente tra i 20 e i 35 euro.
