I'd personally recommend you avoid this place at all costs. Rip off prices, poor service, the only plus point is the location which is in a nice square. I've been coming to Venice for 10 years and this was my worst ever experience.

location alright, food very average and without any taste or flavors. Don't waste your 60 € on two x cold pasta, half a bottle of boring wine and bad service.

I would highly recommend to avoid eating at this place. The quality of food and service leaves much to be desired. Moreover the waiters are liars - looking into my eyes they said that the pizza was made in the real oven although it was clearly bought in supermarket and warmed up in the microwave. Meantime the bill you receive in the end is really as if you ate at a very good restaurant. Unfortunately they are so well-placed that they know that tourists will be eating at theoir place anyway. What a shame!

I spent a week in Venice recently with my nine year old grand daughter and we ate at Al Cavallo most nights because when you find somewhere with a great location, great food and reasonable prices you stick with it!
We were able to order a full portion and a half portion of spaghetti carbonnara but it wasn't long before my grand daughter was requesting a full portion because she loved it so much and shed worked up quite an appetite walking for miles each day.
The waiters were helpful and friendly.

Like previous reviewer, we can only enforce that you should go somewhere else. After a number of good experience in other osterias, this place was a clear tourist trap. The spritz were below standard and overpriced. Nothing to nibble came with it and they charged us 4 Euro for each of the small soft drinks as well. The service was terrible as well.
