“Ripped off”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Our family ate here after we tried this while on a food wine tour. We were over charged for our dinner and although we ordered a 1/2 carafe of house wine were given a bottle of what our server decided to give us. We learned fast while traveling during holidays in Italy this happens but after chatting with these folks it really made us feel they were insincere opportunists. We ordered 3 small plates of pasta and 1/2 carafe of house wine . Our meal totaled approximately 38€ We had 100 euro on table it was swiped off table with a smirk on the servers face .She quickly slapped 10€ Of change back.Very uncomfortable ! For people that a honest . This left us with a bad feeling which really took the joy out of our evening. Beware !

“Excellent little spot for lunch”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Just happened on to this little spot near the fish market. Wonderful house wine and great selection of little cichetti made a perfect lunch.

“Cozy little restaurant”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

This was a little tricky to find from the tripadvisor map, but we persevered and were rewarded with a pretty decent meal. Well kind of. I like to try the local specialties, so I ordered baccalà Mantecato. Dried, cream salt cod. Yeah, it tasted how it sounds. Kind of weird. But my husband and son both had the lasagne which was wonderful. It was so flavorful and kind of light as far as lasagne goes. That might have been because it did not have as much ricotta and mozzarella that lasagne I'm familiar with has. The service was great. And the atmosphere was very charming. It seemed very popular with the locals who were drinking wine by the glass while talking and laughing right outside.

“Popular but not spectacular”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

When we arrived a little past 7:30, the place was packed and we had to eat outside. To be fair, this was third on a series of places we visited that evening for wine and bites and perhaps this was why it was least memorable. I like that they offer a broader menu and are located very conveniently by the Rialto, but only remember what I had as average.

“Good quality and super cosy”
Reviewed 22 February 2014 via mobile

We had a really nice meal here tonight. It's a tiny place with only a few tables but we were lucky. Had pasta with gorgonzola and partner had lasagne. Also tried the liver. All terrific. Finished with tiramisu which was up there with the best ever. Nice service and wines too.

Thank Steven B
