Popped in here by accident and decided to have lunch as the place was more quiet after walking among noisy tourist groups. Service was ok, nothing bad,nothing superb. Food was simple and tasty, again nothing special and prices were in line with the quality.

We were quite excited to find this place as others have said, it is tucked away. We were hoping for good family cooked food but it was just awful. The whole place, including cutlery, glasses and crockery is very dirty. Cooked food was inedible. We...More

as soon as we entered we kinda regreted it. the place is dusty and stucked with old souvenirs. the menu doesn't offers variety (for vegetarians there are only sides). the plates are held tiny ;) as a foodie i wouldn't recommend it.

Cucina da Mario is the typical venetian osteria. Familiar management since 60 years, great food (daily fresh, as there is not any freezer) in a very relaxed atmosphere. Live music every friday night.P.S. Typical Venetian Osteria means that you CAN'T find old bread, neither old olive oil to fry food. Of course NO food older than one day. Infact we're proud of the food we provide, but if you've got any issue with your meal, feel free to tell us. Cheers!
