The very cold welcome when we entered should have been enough to have us running for the hills. Not easily daunted we checked out the very limited menu and ordered two courses. The starters that were actually slammed down on the table in front of us were to be fair very tasty, my husbads main , although very minimal, was... More

We found this whilst looking for an authentic Italian. At first we were not so sure and it wasn't very busy but we were early for Italy. After about 30 mins the place was full with mainly locals so we must have been lucky to get a table. The menu was a little limited but we hoped then it would... More

The portion of the food is enough for a baby. It takes long time to get our food. The food did not taste at all and it was very very expensive if we look at the quality and quantity of the food! We will not eat here anymore! :(

This small restaurant is an option at Mestre, the hinterland of Venice. It's a place where you can find the real venetians, even talking in "venexian" the local dialect. You can choose between fish and meat menu. When I go there, I always choose the fishy one, because venetians are known as specialists in preparing fish. Ask always to the... More

The food was just 'okay'. Service was horrible to the point it was actually abusive. The waiter/server made us wait an extraordinary amount of time before giving us the bill. We actually went so far as to ask for the bill two times and still - the waiter refused to look at us, acknowledge our existence. Finally, after 30 minutes... More

On June 19th, two of us sought out a good quality, pre-cruise dinner. The evening before, we had noticed this place and were attracted by the menu. When we arrived, we were greeted and seated and left to peruse the menu; which is divided into meat and fish sections. We attempted to order a "Negroni" as a pre-dinner drink. We... More

We visited this restaurant as we were staying in Mestre for a couple of days using it as a base for Venice. On the 2nd night we wandered into the centre of Mestre looking for a nice restaurant to eat in as it was my birthday and we stumbled across this lovely hidden gem. It's located behind the main shopping... More
