I went here with my parents and brother. Service was great, the meal flowed really well from appetizers to dessert. 10/10 would recommend. Definitely a spot for seafood lovers but there are other options as well!

We found this restaurant on TripAdvisor for our final dinner in Venice. Lucky we did. The wait staff were courteous and attentive, the atmosphere peaceful and quiet (for Venice) and the food was outstanding. We had the daily special fish (Snapper) served both grilled and...More

Our concierge recommended this restaurant when we asked for local seafood. The food was excellent and the home made pasta was amazing too. The building itself is beautiful!

A suggestion of our Venetian family. Hidden away from crowds, 2 min walk from Realto. Great atmosphere, service, and of course the food!

There's much better location in Venice. The fish was average and the pasta disappointing. Prices are for a tourist location but this restaurant was on an ordinary passage. Look around and find better.

The staff was friendly however the food lacked flavor. The appetizers were the best part of the meal; an interesting take on a caprese salad and eggplant parmigiana. Pasta courses were bland. We have had much better meals elsewhere.

The waiters are amazing. Lorenzo and Sami will take care of you very well and make from your lunch/dinner an Italian experience! We had such a great time here. And the food is amazing too!

Had a good meal here on our first night in Venice. It was a little hard to find in an alley. The frutte de mar had a great lemon flair to it that I've never experienced before. The rest of the food was certainly good....More

San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the
Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six
sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest
neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the
markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops
display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San
Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi)
stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San
