Ok but nothing special. Spaghetti and seafood was ok but my wife’s risotto was an absolute shocker. At least it was better than the place we went last night but not by much.

Refined atmosphere, crisp table linens and a welcoming owner complimented the experience. Very good risotto di mare and zuppa di mare which was enough for lunch. Other diners were calm and discreet with their vocal chords which implied they were not Russian, American or Italian....More

This is a reliably good restaurant on the edge of Dorsoduro. It serves typical Venetian dishes. The problem in Venice is that the restaurants are mostly the same: same dishes, same high prices. This is another same-same restaurant but the quality is a bit better...More

Nice trattoria. Authentic Venetian food at a reasonable price. We had the cuttlefish cooked in its own ink and deep fried seafood. Nice dishes, generous portions. All good.

Very tasty food, lovely atmosphere! I will recommend for all tourists to experience the “old” classic Italian food.

Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob
