“Local (not tourist) restaurant good food at low prices”
Reviewed 23 December 2012

As soon as you walk in you notice that the clients are locals and this is the THE place for morning coffee and brioche. Decor does not strain to appeal to tourists and is very low key. Prices are low. Lunch was good and again very reasonably priced. Huge Insalata cocoode would have been a meal in itself but a plate of spaghetti frutti di mare followed and was also excellent. This and two beers cost me E22. Try getting that in Venice St Marks Square.

“Dive treasure”
Reviewed 24 November 2012

Stopped here because it was the only place open for lunch on a Saturday. Prices are very reasonable ( €5-8 for pasta), and food was some of the better food we'd all had on our Rome-Florence-Venice trip! Was very surprised. Atmosphere is more like a sandwich shop, but there is still table service.

“Quick & Convenient”
Reviewed 6 November 2012

It was dark and raining and late so we didn't want to walk far. About 5 mins. from our hotel we found La Sosta and had a casual, light meal which was promptly served. Very reasonably priced and just what we wanted after a long day.
