We loved sitting on the patio and experiencing the local culture! Food and drinks were excellent! The location awesome! Loved getting away from the hustle and bustle of Venice. This was a great alternative! Family friendly!

If you are near Sant'Antonio, it's about a 10 minute walk to Zairo. Lots of outdoor seating as well as indoors. Great food at reasonable prices. And the view is great

Is it better to sit inside or outside for dinner around 7:00 or 7:30 p.m.?
