We had a nice lunch here, its Murano so very touristy. It was busy and quite a few locals in so that’s always a good sign and no pictures of the food outside which is also a good sign. We had some simple pasta dishes which you shouldn’t really be able to go wrong with in Italy and they were... More

We did not take the tourist paths this day in February and stepped besides the main roads on Murano. We thought we would be the only ones in this restaurant, but it was crowded with...Italians. And so was the food. Very italian, authentic seafood but also different menus available. We had pasta with scampi, fish and italian dessert together with... More

During our stay in Venice we went to Murano island and walk about half a day. We had lunch late at this restaurant, good weather so we sat outside. We had two first course, "Zuppa Verdure" and "Spaghetti Vongole", two main course "Fegatto Venezia" and "Sogliola", all dishes very correct in size and quality... Great service and good food all...

We had lunch there last Friday. We were blessed with beautiful weather and were lucky enough to snag a table right by the canal. My spaghetti alla vongole was rather al dente, but this was the only restaurant we found in four days that had gluten free pasta, so I am definitely not complaining! My partner said that his shrimp... More

Terrible food. Pasta a small child could make, soggy uncooked calamari. Slow, unpleasant, and extremely rude service. When asked why we didn't finish our calamari, the waiter Would give it 0 stars if I could.

Nice place by the canal, reasonable pricing, good but not great food ("fried fish" of the day was actually octopus, deserts from a deeply frozen wholesale delivery, very good veal liver Venetian style). Quite a nice staff. To me - smart choice for a lunch when walking at Murano but nothing special. Not a recommendation for any special experience but... More

Lovely seating outside for dinner, food was great, service was good, nice to even sit out and have a drink. Prices were reasonable, would return here for a nice meal in Murano.

On our arrival in Murano we went by this nice terrace over the canal that was extremely appealing. We were lucky to get a table and the pasta we ordered was really good. The price was not mild though but I guess this is the price to pay for the view...

Nice place on the main canal. Good service. Pasta al dante, a little light on the sauces so you'll need to order extra if you want more than a couple spoonfuls on top. Prosciutto and Melon was absolutely fabulous, melon was the freshest I've had in years. Caprese salad also perfectly fresh.
