Spent a nice day visiting Burano until lunchtime. Restaurants are all tourist gougers, but this one is in a special class. Ordered lasagne for my son and I and they were warm at first, then third cut in was cold like it came from the fridge-freezer. Definitely not fresh like so many other Italian Restaurants. Can't even cook lasagne......and for... More

We stopped here for a dinner, and what a nice little place. We shared a pizza and some wine. I didn't realize that on Burano at least in Winter things close early, so they were shutting down shop while we were having our dinner, but they did NOT rush us. Staff was friendly pizza was good, I can recommend this... More

Myself and my wife found this restaurant in Burano on a busy lunch time- we were lucky enough to get a table! We had the Pizza prosciutto and Calamari to share- both were superb!

We had recently arrived to Burano and saw this restaurant. Food was very good -- typical Italian (touristy) food, pizza, seafood, pasta. Waiters understood English. House red wine was very very good and probably the best we had during our trip. Note that there is a cover charge of 2.50 Euro per person, which is listed on the menu. We... More

We had lunch sitting outside next to the Canal. The waiter was very friendly, spoke both French and English. We had pizzas and fish. We were all very pleased with our food.

Not a long walk from the pier. Super clean WC. Food was ok. The service is nice, until we realize there is 2.5€/person service charge. We got 2 pizza 2 pasta. 2. Drinks (water and soda) and bill ended up around 70€ for 4.

It is on a lovely canal near the bridge on canal side. Many pizzas, we have tried eggplant and artichoke ones . Both were good. Mussels and prawns were delicous too. Romatic terrace with flowers. Service is good too.

We stumbled upon this restaurant while searching for a place to have lunch. Seafood here is really fresh e.g. Calamari, clams and mussels. The Pasta Vongole is the best we've tried so far. I would definitely return to this restaurant the next time I visit Burano and will recommend others to do so as well.
