“Excellent, out of the way!”
Reviewed 14 May 2012 via mobile

Called in on a Sunday night, suggested by our hotel concierge. Absolutly delighted from start to finish with complimentary prosecco to start, and limoncello to finish. We had seen the serves were generous, so ordered only one course, sea bass for "him", and salmon for me. Both were excellent, and had vegetables on the side. Decided to share a mixed gelati for dessert. All, was perfect.

“Two more happy customers”
Reviewed 6 May 2012

We stumbled on Ae Sconte, which was almost opposite our hotel (da Bruno), and were delighted we did. Very friendly - a glass of prosecco on the house to greet us - and fine food. Particular highlights were the scampi risotto, the mixed fried fish in a delicate batter and especially the salmon in herb sauce, simply one of the best salmon dishes I've ever tasted. We liked the osteria so much we went back twice.

This restaurant was recommended to us by good friends of ours in Sydney australia and oh my did it not disappoint!!!

We went there the first night of our arrival and wanted to go every single night of our trip! The service is impeccable- your greeted with a bottle of champagne on arrival. The manager is very knowledgable about the food and gave us wine and food recommendations. The chef came out to say hello also and I must say she is a very talented inidivual!

We will most certainly be back here when we visit Venice again and will be telling all ur friends to go. We can not recommend the gnocchi enough to you!! If we lived there we would go this restaurant evey week simply to taste the gnocchi!!

“Great experience.”
Reviewed 29 April 2012

OK. We are pretty seasoned travelers. Can find a decent place to eat just about anywhere. After talking to locals and our upscale hotel staff we were having one disappointing meal after another during our week in Venice. FINALLY found this tiny gem around the corner from our hotel. We had a total of 3 meals at this delightful spot and when we left we felt like we were leaving friends behind. I believe the previous reviews accurately reflect the fine experience one should expect when sharing an evening with these delightful people. If weather permits, dine outside next to the ancient cistern, watch the residents of Venice on their way home from work, enjoy the prosecco and the after dinner grappa and sweet wine. This lovely spot proves that the real way to experience Venice is to stay awhile, get to know the locals, and not venture outside your hotel between the hours of 11am and 3pm when the cruise ships cough up huge numbers of rushed angry people. Start your magical Venice experience at ae Sconte. Only wish we had found it earlier in our visit.

“Wonderful food and superb service!”
Reviewed 28 April 2012

This restaurant is a little hidden jem. There's a couple of tables outside in the quiet plaza area when weather permits, very cozy.

After our complimentary prosecco, I enjoyed a wonderful meal of zuppa di pesce (fish soup - probably my favorite dish on my entire Italy trip) and mixed fried seafood. The servers were very attentive and friendly. My husband's whole sea bream was filleted tableside perfectly. They followed our delicious meal with complimentary limoncello...strong stuff! Before we left, all the servers and the hostess bid us a warm goodbye and shook our hands.

Every detail was perfect. I'd definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone!
