We came upon this restaurant by chance. The first night we couldn't get in.It's very small so I would book. It's so good that we went twice in four days We chose a seafood platter to share, it was enormous with crab, prawns,mussels ,squid pickled sardine and lots more. More than enough for two. We then had seafood rissoto which was fabulous. The next time we had lamb chops and veal ragu really good. So we were in Venice 4 nights and spent 2 here

Very small restaurant, so plan to go early (and make a reservation) so that you can enjoy the outdoor seating area and not be bombarded by the noise of a group of 9 (thankfully they came as we were finishing). The food was superbly prepared and the white house wine was excellent. I would go to this restaurant again definitely.

Came across this pretty, hidden restaurant as it was on our way to our hotel, Ca Favretto-San Cassiano. Had a very pleasant dinner in the garden. The ambience was nice and cozy, the service quite efficient. The food was way better than we had expected to be honest. The linguine al nero di sepia, the gnocchi was so tasty. Loved the desserts too. Will definitely revisit on our next trip to Venezia.

The restaurant is located in a quieter part of the city on a small side street. It is an excellent family run restaurant. We did not have a reservation and when we arrived around 7:30 were able to make a reservation to come back in about an hour. We sat outside in the garden area. The service and food were both excellent! We had the cuttlefish pasta and lamb, both of which were great.

In case you're turn away at a popular restaurant called Antiche Carampane, do not be disappointed as there is another gem along the canal. Though small and cozy, the attention to customers is top notch and the food is equally good. Seated within minutes without a reservation and the food on the table before we can say cheese for a photo.

Mixed grilled fish is easily the best dish for me but perhaps you may want to skip the tiramisu.
