This restaurant is very close to San Marco square though quite hidden among some narrow streets. Food is really good (8/9) and staff is quite attentive and friendly. They have a really nice inner courtyard, where summer dinners become a great experience.

Very nice ambience here at the restaurant tonight. Love the round tables and white table cloths. Not too many choices on the menu which is a good sign. Food was prepared and presented well. Loved their selection of freshly made desserts. Huge selection of wines...More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the concierge at our hotel. Our group enjoyed our meal overall. The service was good and the food was fine but nothing out of this world. A solid choice amidst many of the highly tourist-y places nearby. We...More
