Saw the good reviews on tripadvisor and decided to try it out. We were really disappointed, in fact it was the worst meal we'd had during our stay in Venice. The staff were attentive and friendly enough, but the menu was uninspiring and disappointing. The food was OK, although it mad so little impression on me I cannot remember what I had now.

The do not offer any vino della casa by carafe unlike everywhere else, so we ordered several wines by the glass - one of the reds was very good but others were a little tired as if they had been open for a while. They also said that they did not serve water by the carafe only bottle still or sparking, a practice which we find dreadful (in France where we live, it is against the law not to offer tap water and bread - a practice which could be adopted everywhere!!).

So many great restaurants in Venice, choose one of them and not here in our opinion.

“delicious, seafood specialization”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

Seafood is their focus, which they do well. We had fried seafood, and mussels to start. Followed by 2 pastas, and a delicious sole. Fabulous chocolate pudding and tiramisu to end meal.

“Last night in Venice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

We came upon this restaurant on our last night in Venice on our mother and daughter trip. The service, the food, and the ambiance were absolutely wonderful! It was the first time wwe sat inside and enjoyed a meal in a quiet corner. There are wonderful pictures of old Venice on the walls.
