“A true artisan's workshop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2011

Statues & statuettes, frames for mirrors and paintings, lamps, cherubim and various other works of all sizes fill this small workshop. Far from being a tourist trap (though we do find it hard to leave without something!), as their business card proudly states "all work done in this laboratory is done by hand", and according to traditional techniques.

It is a true artisan's workshop, and one we make a point of seeing each visit.

“exquisite carvings the perfect "souvenir" of Venice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2011

On your walk from S. Marco to the Accademia or P. Guggenheim, at the top of the Campo
S. Stefano, make certain to stop in at Cavalier. Father and son Gianni and Alberto are master
craftsman carving beautiful works including putti, frames and religious figurines. Should you want a customized piece they are happy to oblige and ship. My husband and I decided
chose several carvings as very special Christmas ornaments. We will remember our trip to
Venice for years to come
