We had just gotten in on our flight and needed some food after 9 PM on a Saturday night. Our hotelier recommended this restaurant. We had about a six-minute walk and it was the one of the few places open in this neighborhood except for...the Hotel Messner & a pub that was very busy with people drinking. We ate a light meal and a bottle of wine. We had mixed Seafood appetizer, a salad and spaghetti with clams. It was perfect for what we wanted at that time of night, but nothing I would write home about (but here I am writing about it). They could work on the Italian bread they offer with the meal. The pasta was cooked perfectly and the salad was great. The Mixed seafood food appetizer was So so.More

A nice restoraunt to sit outside by the canal. The food was very good (pasta with squid ink, pasta con shrimps and zuccini). It was open for lunch around 4pm. It was not extraordinary but it deserves 4.5 at least.

We had a reservation tonight for 6pm at this place and we showed up at 5:45 and all of the metal grates are closed and it seems the restaurant is not open… not sure why we were able to make a reservation if they’re not...open. I tried calling multiple times and we waited until 6pm and they still didn’t open so we’re not sure what on earth happened. Just asked the gal next door and she said they’re closed for renovations - not listed whatsoever on their website AND the website confirmed our reservation… ugh.More

Our waiter was attentive and friendly. The restaurant had only several tables filled, so it was very comfortable except for one extremely loud and obnoxious quartet. We had a delicious amuse bouche of seafood gratinee, and I had a mixed seafood antipasto of sardines, octopus,...bacalao, and shrimp, followed by taglioni with scampi. I thought it was all very tasty. My girlfriend had prosciutto and parmigiana, followed by tagliatelle in tomato sauce. The place is on a canal in Dorsoduro near the Guggenheim museum.More

While watching live webcams in Venezia, posted due to restrictions in travel to Italy, we observed this restaurant was off the tourists path and still busy all day. We decided to take the chance and have dinner here. What a treasure! Away, hidden remains this...very nice restaurant with views to a canal, close to La Salute Church. We had a beautiful dining experience that included 3 course dishes each, an excellent white from Veneto, dessert and limoncello on the house. The Suppa di Pesce, well, all dishes were really great. The service was not less impressive. The place was cozy and the prices quite modest. In all our previous trip to Venezia me missed this jewel, now for us is a must stop whenever we stop by. You should too.More

We hadn’t booked but the staff were excellent and we were able to get a table inside at short notice even though they were busy. Staff were very helpful and pleasant. Food was excellent. Maybe a tad expensive but this is Venice. Overall we had...a relaxing and extremely pleasant evening.More

Great place with delicate and authentic food. Got risotto for 2 with porchini mushrooms - out of this world! Very quiet and romantic atmosphere right on one of the small canals. Highly recommended.

Great food and lovely setting! I really can’t understand these negative reviews. We had the best pasta we’d had on our Venice trip and the steak was excellent. Service was on point. Highly recommended and a great setting by the canal and quiet.

The worst place ever in Venice. The owner is terrible. Don’t visit. He’ll cheat you of money and you pay over-price for the food. Don’t visit.More

Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood 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 neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob

Should not be a problem, usually we try and sit outside on the canal. Adam the owner or Luigi always manages to find you a table. If you are wandering around during the day, just stop in and make a reservation for the... More
