“Lovely quiet spot for lunch”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

We enjoyed our simple and refreshing lunch in this little gem tucked away in the market behind the Rialto bridge.

“Simply fabulous”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

Great cicchetti plate with great variety. Fish platter (Venetian special) was fresh and tasty. Price is very reasonable compare to most tourists oriented restaurants. Service was amazing. We had a lovely time. Strongly suggest for a reservation as this place fills up fast around 8!!

“Well worth a detour from the Rialto market”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

A stop near the Rialto where we sampled local Burano biscuits and a sweet desert wine. As in the other Osteria we visited in our time in Venice the staff were friendly, helpful and keen to make sure you enjoyed the experience. We drank outside as they were setting up for lunch so didn't get a chance to experience the inside or a meal. For Ombre and Cicetti it was well worth the detour.

“Great place for tasting!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

This was last place we went for our Cichetti, wine tasting exploration. We enjoyed all our little tastes of both. Perfect place to see and be with the locals. Few tourists, although crowded with locals the staff was accomodating and friendly. We never felt rushed.

“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 !
