This is a small restaurant so you have to book ahead. Everything was just perfect! The food tastes as if homemade, beautiful presentation. In the end the chef came out to get his thanks. Really worth visiting!

Five minutes on foot from St. Lucia train station, this restaurant offers a restricted variety of high quality food. The prices are related to the high quality delivered: you will spend something around 50 euro/person for 2 dishes, wine, water. If they had more abundant...More

I don't usually review, but since I probably won't make it back to Venice anytime soon, I will share my find. This place is amazing. The complexity of the menu, the marrying of sweet and sour in a shrimp salad, the fennel and tomato sea...More

The chef can bring out the taste of the seafood matching with other ingredient. Remarkable aspagrus raviloi with seafood, especially the source.

We ate in this wonderful restaurant with friends. The food was amazing. Very fresh and tasty. The staff were extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and wines. I would highly recommend this restaurant but make sure you book. Thank you for a wonderful night!

Santa Croce
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district)
when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring
cars and buses close to the center of Venice.
Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking
Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes
with energy from travelers and students. Historic
palaces and former industrial buildings house some
departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture

Not cheap, about €100 for two with wine but good value if you like seafood
We eat fish but not shellfish. Only fish with fins and scales. Are there adequate options? I don't see menu on website. Grazie.
