Visited the place on the Friday evening... After confirming that we didn't have the reservation, waiter/administrator promissed to free the table and asked us to wait outside around 10 min. After 20 min. of waiting, and arrival of some additional customers that didn't seem to have reservation either, we were told that there is no table for at least 30... More

Food was good, but the menu limited. The service was excellent and friendly. Good value. Portions too generous for the wife.

Authentic Italian food. Gnocchi was sublime, beer was plenty, steak was cooked to perfection followed by a delightful panacotta. Not far from our hotel, walking distance. Reasonable pricing. Attentive service.

We ate there twice in our holiday. We ordered pasta and desert and were not disappointed. Would definitely recommend. The staff is pleasant and nice, food comes very quickly and is freshly made. Do make a reservation if you want to be sure you will eat there because is often full. So if you are visiting Venice and staying in... More

This restaurant is located in a residential street, away from the main avenues as it has been there for many decades. It is established, frequented by locals (generally quite busy so book in advance), with extensive, varied menu and very good local and national wines. Service is dedicated, attentive and knowledgeable. Excellent prices too

We found this restaurant in TripAdvisor. It was not on the main road and we would never discover it without knowing. Thank the Reviewers for that. This was a family run restaurant with very cosy atmosphere. Service was friendly and the waiter was humorous and made us feel like at home. The food was very good, Amarone - excellent. Strongly...

What is the opposite of pretentious?.............this restaurant. It is tucked away in a small street as the only restaurant. When you approach the door it looks nothing special and the menu is so small and badly lit you have doubts. Once inside this all changes. The place is positively buzzing with locals. We were surrounded by Italians out for a... More
