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.

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!
