Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Really nice place. Great service, nice wine, LOVELY food. The only feedback would be that the ravioli is hard to eat in a bowl, a plate would of been easier. Otherwise couldn’t fault it!

Restaurant's Favourite
Reviewed 27 March 2024

This is our second trip to Venice and we wanted to eat good Italian food. This restaurant provided everything we were looking for. We ordered the prawns for our appetiser; the ravioli and the salmon. The prawns were absolutely beautifully cooked - they were wrapped...in vermicelli and cooked to perfection. The ravioli and the accompanying sauce was faultless- seasoned to perfection. My husband ordered the beef cheek dish - this dish was 11/10. The beef was tender and the sauce was the best we have ever had. For dessert, the chocolate souffle was unparalleled and we have eaten in restaurants around the world. If you are visiting Venice this is a 'must-do'! It is definitely a restaurant to watch. If you are a foodie put this place at the top of your list - you won't be disappointed.More

Everything was good and the service was good, but the fish was a little fishy and it was very close to the hotel. I'd say 4.5🌟

We had read the favorable reviews and it was near our hotel Principe. They had a list of specials. As Venice is noted for liver, one friend wanted that. The rest of us had the seafood pasta special. They were not busy at all and...it took almost 1 hour for our main courses to come out. The liver was overcooked and the seafood in the pasta was sparse. It wasn't on par with other reviews.More

Wonderfully unexpected! Service was attentive and kind. The ravioli was excellent and the grilled salmon was a large portion and potatoes were great. We might even stop in tomorrow!

We chose this restaurant for our third night in Venice based solely on the TripAdvisor reviews - it was rated the same as the excellent restaurant we ate at last night so we had high hopes. Our evening was so underwhelming that when we came...back to our hotell had to double check the listing to make sure I had selected the right place. Although we love Italy - especially the people and food - we found this restaurant to not be welcoming at all. Our server wasn't the friendliest and even though there were very few people dining, he was quite nonchalant. The wine we ordered (two glasses of Chardonnay) was not the best and couldn't have been more than 4 oz. each. The food was mediocre and when I gave feedback that the spaghetti cacio e pepe (more than half remained uneaten) was very salty, the server said the pepper can be overwhelming. I love pepper, I have had cacio e pepe many times and I am aware of the difference between salt and pepper. I am giving three stars because the place looked nice and clean, the food presentations were lovely, the prices seemed reasonable, and the food was average. For us, the very unfriendly vibe of the place was the biggest drawback and probably the reason why the restaurant was practically empty while all others in the area were hopping. I am sorry to sound harsh but we travel and eat out constantly - many places are average and I don't bother writing a review but I give honest reviews to restaurants who deserve high praise and to the ones who could do better. For some reason TripAdvisor is only showing that I’ve made two contributions when I’ve actually made many, so I’m not sure what has happened to my history.More

It's a quiet little place. Nobody outside trying to drag you in. The food was amazing. I really wanted to try a dessert i was so full so she gave me a little bag of cookies to go. The service was friendly. Sadly, I was...the only one there enjoying my food. If you are in the area you really must stop by.More

Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district)

bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution,
