It's hard to find that perfect little small spot, informal but with food that makes you grin from ear to ear with delight. This restaurant is somewhat off the beaten path, and from its appetizers, we had the fish platter, to the homemade pastas to the melt in your mouth dessert, it was a highlight of Venice trip. Our only regret is that we didn't got back more often. It wasn't all that costly, and unlike other restaurants, it was worth every euro.

Some time has passed since we ate at La Staffa but we still remember how pleasant it was. We were there at the end of March and ate there twice at lunchtime. The atmosphere was relaxed, the food well presented and tasty and the prices very reasonable for Venice. It's only a stone's throw from the beautiful gothic church of S. Giovanni e Paolo. We will certainly go back when we are next in Venice.

Our Context Tour guide recommended this restaurant as we finished the tour at S. Giovanni e Paulo church. We had a great lunch. If you like cheese, their cheese plate is awesome. Highly recommended.

We spent 3 weeks in italy across the alps, cinque terra, tuscany, venice and lake garda and this was one of the top 3 meals we ate. Delicious, fresh and innovative food. Would go again for sure! Very small, but you can have a drink and wait. It is worth it!

We had to book as it gets deservedly busy. Prices nonetheless very modest for the excellent quality of cooking. Small, informal bar and restaurant, serving particularly good pasta and very reasonably priced wine. Pleasant service. We were in Venice for four nights and this little place outperformed all the other mid-priced places we tried. Well worth the walk away from the St Marks area and off the general tourist beat. Suits couples, families looking for good, real Veneto food.
