Friendly service and felt like a proper restaurant not a tourist joint. But there were glitches with the food. The pasta was v good and nice white wine, properly chilled, but served without a wine cooler. The caprese salad was ice cold, so the tomatoes...More

This is a modest place. When we were there, a Monday afternoon, the back room was filled with workmen, and a few women. Many knew each other. Great atmosphere. Excellent food.

Well sized proportions of freshly prepared pasta. Well worth a visit on the way towards the train station. Looks like booking is a good idea as it was very busy with locals.

Had lunch in the restaurant with my partner randomly. However the restaurant gave us a good impression with nice and tasty food here. The portion of food is big actually while the quality of food didn't compromise! Great value for money!

Recommended to us by our hotel receptionist. We arrived at 7.30pm and managed to get the last table without a booking. The 16 Euro 3 course set menu was excellent value - I particularly enjoyed the kidneys. The desserts were delicious, while the house wine...More

The food is very untasty. The place has so much review due to be located in main touristic street. Avoid touristic streets and places like this restaurant.

Without doubt, our best meal in Venice. This is a simple restaurant, but the food is good and genuine. The staff is friendly. Good value for money. Highly recommended.

Though located right on the main tourist route, this restaurant could pass as a nice trattoria in a normal Italian town. It has a small rear courtyard, which is pleasant and quiet, friendly English-speaking waitresses, a good selection of wines, and decent prices (by Venice...More

We have been to this trattoria numerous times, August 2016, February 2017 and during our three week visit this August. It's warm, friendly with a good menu. We feel it's what a trattoria should be. Hope you enjoy!

Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district)
with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many
transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying
areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand
for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal
bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution,
2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli
Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby

I'm not entirely sure if you can book online as I don't think they have a website. When we visited in December, we called and booked in at the restaurant a couple of days before we went. I highly recommend booking in... More

Not far from the train station in Venice. Very close to the Grand Canal. Excellent dinner here in June 2010.
