Visited for lunch after a long morning of walking and touring.

Service was prompt and friendly, House wine tasty, and food well prepared. We had gnocchi pomodoro and tortellini with ham and peas, plus an insalata mista. Good food but the location is why you come here.

The location is hard to beat, overlooking a side canal where gondolas are constantly passing. Beautiful and you can enjoy the music when someone springs for it on their ride.

Travelling with three other couples, we were staying at Hotel do Pozzi (recommended) near the restaurant. The water taxi picked us up from outside this restaurant for two of our trips.
The friendly staff seated us beside the canal (under an awning) and were very attentive. There was not a single complaint among our 8 diners regarding the food. Personally I had lasagne and green salad and it was very good. The carafe of house white wine was enjoyed by all.
To me, this is the simple Italian fare that you look forward to when travelling in Italy and I would happily dine here again.

We went here the first and the last night of our trip to Venice. The gnocchi with Gorgonzola cheese was the best thing ever!!! I will probably crave this for months now I’m back in England :( My partner had the squid ink twice it was so good. Waiters we’re so friendly and lovely. The spot is breath taking and so romantic.

This restaurant is very near Hotel do Pozzi and is located next to a small canal used by gondolas.
We ate there twice and enjoyed main courses of steaks, mushroom tagliatelle and scampi and artichoke linguine.
Also enjoyed the carafes of local white wine and italian coffees.
Deserts of ice cream with liquor and cappuccino mousse.
Complimentary sweet desert wine one night.
We found the staff polite and helpful.
Cost around 100 - 120 euros for two...so not a cheap night out but you are in Venice and next to a canal!

The location is certainly beautiful and quinntessential Venice. Food was decent ... overall for a pasta, one salad and an antipasti platter, a glass of wine and a bottle of beer was $100 USD!! There was all kinds of service charge which I guess is common if you sit canal or water side. I would not have spent that kind much for 2 adults and one child at place like this. There are lots of great places to eat for much less near Rialto.
