“good food”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

Although a little pricey , it was worth our time . We both had the risotto and salad . It was very good. We do not drink wine , so I can not tell you about that. We thought for Venice it was very tasty.We found if you just get "lost" you will find a lot of nice places to eat in Venice

“Expensive dinner even for Venice standards”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

After our first evening sightseeing around St.Marks square we headed back to our Hotel Al Gazzettino and decided to eat in this small Trattoria associated to the Hotel. In addition to my order of pizza my spouse ordered a pasta dish but failed to notice that the dish was for two. When the dish arrived it consisted of two small bowls which looked more like an appetizer. Once we received the bill we noticed that instead of the already high 16 Euro for the dish we ended up paying 32 Euros. This could have been explained to us while ordering. Would recommend crossing Rialto bridge, head towards San Polo where restaurants prices are more reasonable with larger portions

“Not just a restaurant, what a great family run business”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

I can't say enough about this restaurant, most definately the best meal we had while in Venice. While small and a little difficult to find, you will not regret your efforts. While trying to find a local place and a little disappointed with some of the restaurants along the canal we stumbled upon this place. Asking the owner if the fish was good, he said if you don't like you don't pay, if you like you pay double. He was a very pleasant man, we decided to leave our menu choices in his hands and what a great idea. He served us an array of fish as an appetizer, one more delicious than the next, served with polenta and some other sides. Our main course was also grilled fish and fried fish. The fried fish was a delicate fry and the grilled fish was beyond good. Both served with various sides, including vegetables and polenta. Though full we decided to try the tiramisu, great call, quite different than others we've had in the states, yum! We thought we were done and no additonal room, but they brought us out a shot of grappa and some cookies. While sitting there enjoying the evening they also brought us out a milk shake type drink with lemon. No clue what it was but so delicious. Tables are close so we quickly made friends with other tables. Even though I sent a wine glass flying across the floor the staff and owers were so kind, taking pictures with us along with the cheesy Venice hats. We really had a great time along with incredible food.

After seeing the reviews on this restaurant I was excited about having dinner here. My friend ordered vegetable soup since she was not really hungry and was mostly there so I could eat dinner. The very arrogant owner or waiter was not happy that she only wanted soup and pushed her into ordering pasta as well.... very uncomfortable and obnoxious. I ordered shrimp scampi which was 19E and a caprese salad. When my scampi came I couldn't believe how little was on my plate. There were four shrimp and literally it was two bites of food! The entire meal and service was disappointing ... I cannot recommend this restaurant! I might suspect that some of the reviews of this restaurant are false.
