This osteria is definitely one of the best in Venice. The food is divine and fresh. We enjoyed every single plate we ordered. Would love to go back.

Great for a casual dining . Friendly staff . Amazing area of Venice . Great place to get away from the tourists and experience a local diner . Food is average but definitely not bad . Worth paying a visit

Had lunch at this true Venetian Osteria. There is no pizza, lasagna and menus in 8 different languages! The menu is in Italian and there are only a few plates, like a true home made meal should be. If you are looking for a restaurant...More
