“A little gem - don't be put off by the outside appearance”
Reviewed 14 February 2014

We happened on this gem on our final night in Venice and it provided the best meal of our stay.
Not the most attractive of venues but more than made up by the food
Two great waiters provide friendly and helpful service and are determined you enjoy your food. After having order rather plain meals we were asked if wanted to try something more interesting and they could make a lovely pasta dish with porcini mushrooms and Italian sausage for us. It was lovely.
We followed this with grilled sea bass which was freshly caught that day.
I would recommend looking this place out and just letting the waiters suggest a nice mead for you - cast away the printed menu and go for the authentic Venetian hospitality, enjoy

“Twice in a day!”
Reviewed 11 February 2014 via mobile

This place is just great. So great we ate here twice on the same day (and we weren't even that hungry!)
The food is excellent. Pasta is absolutely delicious and the pizza is good too.
The service is great, really friendly staff who do their best to make you smile!
Unlike most restaurants in venice, it's not a tourist trap! They don't charge for service or cover charge (coperto) unlike most of the restaurants we visited! It's tucked away in a narrow side street, worth looking for! Highly recommended!

“GREAT RESTAURANT-MUST GO”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

We had difficulty finding this restaurant, but it was well worth it. We were welcomed like family returning home. All our servers were smiling, friendly and patient. My friend ordered a fish stew which was served in a hugh bowl and looked like a wellington. She had to cut through the pastry to get to the man;y different and delicious fish. I love potatoes and was served fries cooked to perfection along with a white fish, the name i still don't know, but also delicious. The owner came to our table and offered us wine along with our servers and after dinner drinks, gratis. We had so much fun with these people and were so pleased we dined there once again. We loved it.

Reviewed 19 January 2014

Arrived in Venice at midnight and hungry. Hotel recommended Planet as a late night restaurant. Got 3 pizzas and a calzone. Very good - not a bite was left.

“Supposed to be cheap, but bites you in the end.”
Reviewed 6 December 2013 via mobile

Well the title pretty much sums it up, but the food wasnt great either. We stopped by because it was only 13eur each for a three course meal. The chicken was really dry and some of it i couldnt even eat, the rest of the food was below average at best. As a last spank on the butt we got the check and they have taken the liberty of charging us 7€ on service. We tried to confront the staff in å nice way to ask about it, but they pretty much laughed it off. There are so many great places in Venice, so do yourself a favour and walk past this one.
