“So very rude !”
Reviewed 13 June 2013

Never go to this restaurant !The owner and staff of this restaurant were extremely rude. They insisted that we order 7 pizzas for 7 persons even if we can't eat them. They actually asked us to leave if we don't comply. Said they need a minimum billing for us to eat there. There was no mention of this on their menu or any cover charge mentioned (other restaurants mention a cover charge if applicable - normally not required for a big group). We were aghast by the attitude of the staff. Outright rude - don't know what the attitude is about. It is a small restaurant in a back alley of Venice. Difficult to find and no great ambience. Normal pizzeria - nothing to write home about !!

“Comfortable, neighborhood restaurant with lovely outdoor patio.”
Reviewed 10 June 2013

During our visit to Venice, we stayed in the Castello district and chanced upon this restaurant while taking an evening walk . We were looking for something casual and since we were planning to attend an evening Vivaldi concert,we knew we didn't have a lot of time to linger over dinner. The menu had a nice variety and we chose a seafood pasta,salad and small pizza. Ambience, service and food were very good and price was reasonable. If we had had more time during our stay in Venice , we would have returned to this restaurant . I especially liked the outdoor seating.

Very good and friendly service. Food was simple but good. Good pricing as well. Enjoyed a nice pizza and had a little chat with the waiters. Desserts are absolutely recommended!
