“Challenging to find!”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

This place is not easy to find! Even with directions from the website, our B&B owner and 2 random people in the area we still had difficulty...........and we are generally very good with directions! The mistake is how to interpret "just over the bridge".....we were going straight over the bridge, while we really needed to take an immediate left over the bridge, along the canal. Even doing that you have to walk a ways, with no signage until you reach the right door way. We opted for the dinner/show package, and arrived at 7 as the website said doors open at 7; dinner is served at 8; and the show starts at 9. We were turned away at 7 and told to come back at 8.....so not starting out well! LOL It's easy to wonder around the area, look in shops and stop for wine, so we had no trouble killing an hour! We came back at 8 and had our choice of tables and chose a private one in the back. Dinner was surprisingly good, with lasagna and wine. Our waiter/owner/band member was great, and even let me sample some grappa which was something I wanted to experience before leaving Italy. OMG! ....at least I can say I tried it! LOL The night we were there it appeared they had at least 2 guest band members....hard to say how every night compares, but we thought this group was outstanding! I think jazz is a little unexpected in Venice........but if you are a fan of this type of music, I would say this is a must see/do activity while in Venice!

“My first jazz bash”
Reviewed 9 May 2014 via mobile

Looking for something a little different after all the attractions in Venice, we found this small rustic jazz club tucked away. Only 12 in the audience it was intimate and very friendly. 20 euro including first drink for 2 hours of amazing sounds from three very talented musicians.
It was our last night or I would have gone again.

“Fun night with some great Latin Jazz!”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Federico is a great host, adding humour and knowledge to the music. The evening was latin and the drummer (plus other instruments) Gianni was a star and made the evening very memorable, of course the whole band where great too. Drinks very reasonable and if you appreciate jazz or just music itself then it's a must.

“Fantastic night”
Reviewed 30 April 2014 via mobile

We booked on line no problem. Found the place during day first so easily located on the Saturday night. Our table was reserved and first drink included with entry. I had lovely g and t.
The manager/piano player introduced each piece. He was very entertaining. The music was absolutely fantastic. Each musician was first class and a guest in audience did an impromptu stint on the druns and percussion. A great night and would have gone back if we had been in Venice longer.
