“Lovely garden dining almost ideal”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 via mobile

We happened upon this place for dinner and were attracted to the lovely outdoor garden courtyard dining area. It feels very romantic and special. Our waiter was a bit gruff and terse but I would not let that stop you (after all, you don't need to ask him to sit and eat with you). The lasagna was piping hot and delicious and the clams were outstanding. They skimped on the scallops with the gnocchi but the food was otherwise excellent and the tiramisu was terrific.

“Very nice garden, good food”
Reviewed 13 April 2014 via mobile

We had lunch at Al Giardinetto the day we arrived in Venice - it was recommended by our hotel and we enjoyed it. I had a pasta with crab sauce and kids shared a good carbonara. My husband had a gnocchi that he liked as well. The wine was also very good. Food was tasty and reasonably priced. I think the highlight was a very pretty and peaceful garden away from the hustle and bustle. Very respectable restaurant.

“Pasta done right”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

We stumbled upon this restaurant while we were getting lost through Venice and well, we got lucky. Unlike the many restaurants, that are trying to lure you in this place was just the opposite and the only reason why we settled on this place is because someone walking out told us the food was great.

We sat outside which is always nice. The waiter was hard and work and did his best to stay on top of things since he was the only manning the outdoor area.

We had the spaghetti busara and it was perfectly cooked and flavored; delicious! We also had the polenta with cuttlefish entree (secondi) and that too had amazing flavor.

It was a great first meal to have in Venice.

Perfect place set in a quiet garden.
Traditional plates are well prepared, with art, and staff is very friendly. Wine list is nice and fairly priced, my lady pregnant could not deink therefore i had half a bottle of pinot gresio which was simple and very nice. I recommend this place (tiramisu is excellent)

“Good food and nice garden atmosphere”
Reviewed 30 March 2014 via mobile

We had a Sunday lunch and enjoyed ourselves. The ambiance in the garden is very nice, although when we first arrived we were seated near a drain that smelled of sewage. Once we changed tables, the smell was less noticeable. We had mussels, a mixed fried seafood dish and caprese salad as starters and enjoyed them all. The macaroni (penne) alla arrabiata was delicious as was the fillet mignon. We found the service to be friendly but were surprised by the cover charge - only 2.50euro per person, but we weren't expecting it. Overall, we enjoyed our meal.
