loved this place just popped in for a drink on the way to dinner but wished we'd had booked to eat fully here and i will go back. Does fab tapas and great wine parings. Also live music. The dining room is divided just with some planters between the very small bar area but it sort of works, it is small though so you must book, we only got in because our hotel called ahead. The other good thing is most of the crowd were locals always a good sign.

Cool, modern restaurant with delicious food and friendly service. Try the tasteful chateaubriand with amarone sauce - yummie! Good prices and location. Our favourite place in Venice!

We visited the place for drinks since had already eaten on the day.
We ordered some desserts which were great (the best we had for while). The menu looks promising and we will be back for a full meal next time we are in Venice.
Atmosphere is great and staff was extreme friendly.
Regarding pricing in Venice: We ordered wine to go with the dessert by the glass. The waiter and I had some exchange what may go best with it…. When we ordered the second round the got one of the wines wrong. It was taken back without any discussion.
When we asked for the bill there was the positive surprise:
The charged one glass less(!) than we had and deduced another €3 for the “confusion” and despite the fact that it was written on the menu (which was an iPad) on every page that €3 “copperto” will be charged, we did not find it on the bill since we had only wine and a dessert.

Others have found the food here excellent, I have to say. It depends what you are comparing it with, I suppose. This meal came between Riviera and and the Ristorante alle Corone (in the Hotel Ai Reali). By those standards the food here was reasonable but not more and it is quite expensive. The high tech menus and ordering system seemed to cause problems for some of the staff !! The choice is quite wide but some of the dishes are more cafe than restaurant. My wife wanted us to eat fish as it was Dec 24th. and her portion was on the small side. I settled for a salmon burger (by no means as alarming as it sounds: it was what the Americans might call a large salmon patty on a bed of rosti). The first pasta dishes were pricy and OK. The strawberry mille feuille for us had too much custard for out taste although the strawberries were wild and very tasty. List of wines is good and we had an excellent Chardonnay.
But the main feature of this place is the atmosphere , which was excellent. In-house pianist and lots of locals made the place buzz. All in all, well worth going but perhaps not for a formal dinner.

We booked this place based on Trip Advisor reviews which I must say did not let us down!! A very different dining experience, modern Venetian with a really contemporary twist. The Beef Tenderloin was to die for followed by wild strawberry Mille Feuille.... absolutely out of this world! A definite must for you foodies out there!
