Very pleased we took the suggestion - excellent food and service. If a real ale drinker you will get very close with Morgana (a local artisan beer).

Make a reservation when in Venice and have a great meal. The beef, home made pasta and the Venice style fish were all excellent. Wine choices were plentiful and the service was great. Try the veal cheeks the dish was superb!

Not far from San Marco, and a perfect place to eat while visiting although it's quite small (reservation recommended). The beef, and the homemade pasta are both wonderful

Nice restaurant. Amazing food, nice service and an excellent spot. On the other hand, prices are very high - it should be somehow related to te location where the restaurant is. In anyway, it is a very good place.

Cozy and yet modern with exceptional food and service. We had a marvelous dinner. The wines were equally delightful. If you can grab a table or reservation -run don't walk for a great evening in Venice.

We rushed in here for lunch on a cold, rainy miserable day and were lucky to be seated almost right away, despite having no reservation. It's a cozy place, like many other traditional osterie in Venice. The food was good, especially the local specialties, and...More

We timed this perfectly and in a restaurant with only 26 covers we were seated in 5 minutes with no reservation and then watched countless people turned away. We were blessed as the meal and supporting wine list did not disappoint. A wonderful "primi" of...More
