We were quite excited to find this place as others have said, it is tucked away. We were hoping for good family cooked food but it was just awful. The whole place, including cutlery, glasses and crockery is very dirty. Cooked food was inedible. We...More

I feel sorry that, as the only customer, I bothered the waitress. She would so much rather had an empty restaurant. I thought it was me, but it wasn't. As some more customers came in she was not smiling, not looking at them or made...More

We were attending the opera at Musica Palazzo in the evening and wanted to find a restaurant close by. This restaurant was tucked away down a side street and a great find. This appears to be a family run restaurant that had decent food and...More

as soon as we entered we kinda regreted it. the place is dusty and stucked with old souvenirs. the menu doesn't offers variety (for vegetarians there are only sides). the plates are held tiny ;) as a foodie i wouldn't recommend it.

This is not your standard place to eat: it is tucked out of the way but still offers reasonable food. Very much a family type restaurant, with service hit or miss depending on ongoing business. But the food was home cooked and good, and the...More

Cucina da Mario is the typical venetian osteria. Familiar management since 60 years, great food (daily fresh, as there is not any freezer) in a very relaxed atmosphere. Live music every friday night.P.S. Typical Venetian Osteria means that you CAN'T find old bread, neither old olive oil to fry food. Of course NO food older than one day. Infact we're proud of the food we provide, but if you've got any issue with your meal, feel free to tell us. Cheers!
