This restaurant has a great setting in the Island by the canal. We had a nice table outside. The waiter was very nice and helpful. The risotto Burano style prepared with ghiozzi fish from the lagoon was delicious.Booking in advance highly recommended.

Almost 3 years to the day since our last visit and the same canal side table awaited us. A great chat with the enthusiastic and engaging owner was the prelude to a relaxed and delicious lunch and a wonderful time with experience. The Buranella Risotto...More

We had two different people recommend this restaurant and quite frankly we were disappointed as we were expecting more of a five-star experience; even though the food was great, the service, ambience and selection (for a vegetarian) were average at best. Our particular waiter seemed...More
