Had a fantastic dinner here, one of the best meals we have had in Italy. The service was friendly and the food was amazing. The pick of the meals was the grilled seafood... perfectly cooked. The restaurant is very small but we booked in only an hour or so before we arrived and snagged a great table outside. I would definitely recommend booking. We went with our two kids and they absolutely loved their pasta. Would love to go again!

Some good some bad. The pizza was amazing!!! However our pastas were average. The place seemed like they were just phoning in the service. I ordered a drink on two separate occasions from two separate servers and it still never arrived. The pasta was near cold and was obviously sitting for a long time prior to it making our table. I can see why some people like it but I would recommend going elsewhere. There are so many other fantastic places in Venice. This is not a must do.

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.
