We were only in Venice for 3 days and we ate twice at Da Stefano's. We found the food and service to be excellent and the prices were reasonable. We highly recommend it and I'm a little surprised by any negative reviews.

Moved away from St Marks Square seeking a reasonably priced restaurant for a list lunch. Da Stefano looked popular with locals which is usually a good sign but our pizzas turned out to be very disappointing. Wish we had done more research on this occasion
