We had the mussels and clams to start, seafood risotto for our mains and pana cotta for dessert. All were of the highest standard. Service was good as well. Lovely little restaurant off the beaten track in Venice.

Good service, delicious food (grilled sea food platter recommended) & reasonably priced for Venice standards.. a good place for a romantic evening out. The risotto is really excellent so is the chocolate mousse dessert

We ate here our first evening in Venice. It was recommended by our hotel & it was fantastic. We had the sea bass & it was excellent.

Tiny so booking essential. Best meal of our four days in Venice. Skip the house wines but Soave & Merlot were excellent. Grilled or fried mixed fish and beef tagliani were especially good. We were staying nearby, otherwise hard to find but worth seeking out.

We spent a lively long evening in their fine restaurant. I would rank cuisine as among the best in Venice. If you have a nice night go early so you can sit out in the giardinetto. The service is also excellent, the lead is Larissa...More

My husband and I had a meal here while on holiday. It's a lovely wee find down a side street. We are outside in small courtyard type area. I had the pumpkin gnocchi and sea bream in orange sauce. Really lovely, simple & tasty food...More

Had a lovely dinner. Extensive seafood choice. Excellent service and warm friendly atmosphere. Strange decor and little bit pricey but food was delicious.

The food and service were excellent. It's small and unpretentious, but also quite atmospheric. Highly recommended.

This fine little place is the perfect choice if you want local kitchen in a Venetian house in a small alley without touristic decoration. The friendly service, the food and the wine (and grappa barrique!) will uplift you to Casanova's dreams!

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
