I stumbled upon this & was carried to my table by a gondolier because it was very flooded. He insisted. Sat down & was warmly greeted by Marco. I had a couple glasses of wine & the seafood pasta which was amazing. Also had the mascarpone & amaretto dessert. Plus an espresso. This is a great lunch spot. View of the bridge & the staff was wonderful. My bill was about 60€ but I'm not cheap or care about money. It was the experience. Lovely. People watching was great. & the staff helped with my Italian!

Rude and vulgar!!! Do not stop at this establishment. They are as nice as can be to get you in and then treat their guest horribly!! If 0 rating was available they would get it!!

One would think this a tourist trap -- located right next to The Rialto Bridge. Not at all. Dined outside. Spectacular service. Excellent food. The views are breathtaking and the location is not to be beat.

OK, it is an expensive, average restaurant, but the views are fantastic: the Grand Canal , the Rialto, the gondolieri providing the cabaret as they haggle with tourists. Cross their palms with euros and they'll even take your photo in a gondola without going anywhere. Sitting outside is a must.
An adequate, if not inspired, pizza was no more expensive than the better-filled home grown Pizza Express variety, but a litre of Morretti at e 13.50 is enough to turn you teetotal. Add in the cover charge AND the 12.5% service and it is no bargain, but those are few and far between in Venice, so get over it .

Sat down without looking at trip advisor. But knew it would expensive being on the water facing the Rialto bridge. As always when in Venice you try for a bit of atmosphere, but did not realise the 12.5% surcharge was for the view.
Anyway the food was superb, the service excellent, although we did sit inside next to the window because of the smokers.
Only negative would be that it is a bit pricey at 115euros.
