Went there with my boyfriend for lunch and I must say I really enjoyed it. The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating, but we stayed outside, right next to the sea and gondolas gliding by! The decor was very nice and the waiters very friendly. The menu was varied and quite comfortably priced, considering the excellent location right next to Piazza San Marco.

The food was very tasty, however the only complaint I have is that although the food was not expensive the drinks were EXTREMELY SO, considering that one normal sized tin of ice tea was priced at 6.50euro! Plus a service charge of 3euro for each person. However, it was our last day in Venice, so we decided to enjoy it anyways.

Went there for lunch with my girlfriend. The waiter was very friendly. We both ordered a pizza which was delicious. The view was amazing. It was an enjoyable lunch, albeit a bit pricey, though all restaurants in the area are.

Perfect for a cup of coffee either early in the morning, or after a hard day's walking around. This was obviously the place where locals go, so that gave it an extra buzz.

Stopped here while exploring Venice as it looked a great place to watch the sun set and get a couple of beers.the service was swift and friendly and after our first beer we decided to grab a pizza we went for the 4 cheese and it tasted great.the view was brilliant boats speeding by in front of landmarks with the sun setting .we had 4 pints of beer a pizza and side of chips it came to around 50 euros so if your on a budget maybe not your first choice but with the view and great pizza it's worth a visit even if only for a beer and watch the sunset.

We were pleasantly surprised that this restaurant was not only set perfectly on the Grande canal, but the food was excellent. We didn't expect much, just going for the view on our last night. From the Caprese salad to our risotto, exceeded our expectations. They actually had basil on it.
