Had a lunch with family in La Palanca in July. Everything we had was great, but the Filetto di Tonno was best Tuna I have ever had.

Service was personal and friendly.

Definately worth a visit.

Thank Kirre

I like this place, typical Venezian people taking their morning espresso, nice brioche, great staff, beautiful view and nice location, a must if you stay in Guidecca!! And last but not least…a fast and very good Wifi access for checking mails and newspaper from home in the morning. Love this place

This is a must-do for lunch if you are in Venice and the weather is nice. The menu is simple but the dishes are done really well - I had the mixed seafood appetiser followed by the cuttlefish spaghetti with black cuttlefish ink sauce, all washed down with a beer. The view across and along the Giudecca canal is fantastic, and the staff are welcoming, helpful and efficient. The older gentleman who I think may have owned the place clearly took a lot of pride in his establishment, and spent a good deal of time with each new set of customers to explain the food on offer, and seemed to be able to do so in several languages. This is one of the cheapest places in Venice to have such a good lunch in a great setting. Highly recommended.

We found this lunch stop a little by accident, but what a find. The thing that struck me was the guy who I presumed owned it, was so enthusiastic about food and his menu, describing every component in detail with such passion. The lunch was simple but possibly the freshest,, tastiest fish I have ever eaten. We sat in the afternoon sun on the edge of the water with views across to the main island. I could have stayed for many hours. We ate, we drank, we chatted and it was fabulous. Would thoroughly recommend!

We stay on Giudecca so it is a real bonus to have good restaurants nearby. La Palanca is very welcoming, and the staff went out of their way to make our lunch memorable. All the tables on the quayside were busy so they just moved out another table for us. We had grilled squid and a beef casserole. The latter was a bit uninteresting but full of flavour and the squid were excellent. The wines were very good and the views are just fabulous. It is a lovely setting, the food is very good and the staff are welcoming. What more could you ask for?
