“"A quiet restaurant"”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

Recommended by Venetians, this garden restaurant has all the expected items on the menu, which will be brought to your table by congenial, but perhaps rather bored waiters. Yet the food is quite good--pasta, chicken, or fish--you won't be disappointed, and when you put this restaurant within the context of the broader selection of restaurants near San Marco, it is actually a gem. It is also family-friendly, which is a good thing if you're bringing your children (and also a warning to those people that may have left their children at home for a welcome respite). An interesting selection of wines, and excellent desserts make this a restaurant that is, overall, an above-average experience for weary travelers in Venice.

“Could be better”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Had dinner at this restaurant and, being quite expensive, it could be better. There is a cover charge of 2.50 euro which also covers bread. If you don't ask for the bread they will not bring it and you pay for it anyway.
The waiter we had would ask to take our order, but by the time we had started talking he had mooved on. The food is quite tasty and the presentation is quite good.

“Tasty find!”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Went here by recommendation of a friend who travels to Venice frequently. I was not disappointed! Beautiful garden setting and food was fabulous! Off the beaten path, so takes a little effort to find, but well worth it! We had several different items and shared them. Antipasti was wonderful!

“A garden oasis”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. No one was pressuring us to come in and eat, and the front room where we waited for a table was tiny so we were surprised when we were taken into the outdoor, garden where the seating was which was filled with people. I had fresh pasta (black from squid ink!) with lobster sauce which was excellent and my husband had the sea bass, which was pretty basic. But the tiramisu was excellent. The price was okay but the best thing about it was that it was an enclosed, green, intimate setting in a town with no greenery. The service was typical unrushed Italian service; be prepared to sit and relax.

“Excellent dinner”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

We were a large group of 10 people (4 14 year old kids). We sat outside in their garden courtyard (not visible from the front of the restaurant) Everything was great. They were very accommodating to our requests. We decided to order some Buffala Mozzarella, Tomatoes and asked if they would bring it out with some Parma ham (no problem). We then asked if they would bring some pasta's for the table to share (bolognese and pesto) - both Excellent. Everyone then ordered their main course. All were amazing. We ended up closing down the restaurant but never felt as if anyone was rushing us. Great Evening, Great food
