God, their food is amazing! I had some prawns and lobster plate and it was absolutely delicious. Besides that, they had the best beer in Italy, finally a tasty beer! (Of course, it was Bavarian! :) ) Totally worth it!

I went for lunch with a couple of friends and a child. The place is small but cozy (definitely recommend to book in the evening). Service was fast and food really good. Special mention for the seppie al nero with polenta.

This place is small and the quarters are tight, but the food is worth it. We were disappointed by a number of our meals in Venice, but not here. I enjoyed the best caprese salad I think I've ever had (and I've had a few)....More
