They always accommodate us and make black squid ink risotto. They have squid ink pasta on the menu but not squid ink risotto. The first few times we ate here the squid ink risotto was incredible. Now it is just very good. I am not...More

One of the old Venice restaurants that has not kept up with what's going on. Very indifferent food and amateurish service.

The food was good/average, but what makes the place great is the location. It is worth a visit if you can get one of the few outside tables by the canal!

It is about 10 years since I last visited this restaurant with my wife. From memory we enjoyed our last meal but obviously expectations have changed. Standard pasta dishes were well presented and as good as expected, but the secondi meat dishes were unexceptional-below the...More

Restaurant near to our hotel. Looked comfortable and quite busy so popped in for dinner. Ordered prawn starter. Literally some cold prawns (thawed) in lemon juice and a herb on a plate. 10 euros. Bread was semi stale. Mains were ok and wine good. Sent...More

I was really hopeful for this place. Saw good risotto reviews, but I think this was one of the worst meals my wife and I ever had. The risotto tasted like chicken broth and rice. Not creamy, no flavor besides salt. On our way home,...More

My parents used to eat here over 10 years ago when they lived near Venice so we decided to look it up during our trip! It's a lovely cosy restaurant with a local feel away from the main tourist areas. We had a lovely meal...More

A delightful dinner following a wet day of sight seeing. We were quickly seated without a reservation, and ordered tortellini with prosciutto and spaghetti with shrimps. The cream sauce with the tortellini was rich and delicious, and the two large whole shrimp, complete with shells,...More

We were walking around the area and stumbled upon this restaurant. Beautifully positioned with one side by the canal an the other in little calle. And yet it proved to be totally lacking in atmosphere no locals that I could distinguish just a rather loud...More

Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob
