“Does what it says on the tin!”
Reviewed 15 May 2013

We ate at this restaurant one afternoon last summer, we stumbled across it at that perfect time in the day - we had been wandering around the Venetian alleyways all morning and were ready to eat. We sank gratefully into the chairs under a parasol and had a simple but tasty spaghetti with pesto washed down with cold beer. We really enjoyed the meal but in the following days we couldn't find it again!
Imagine our surprise this year, staying in a different hotel in the Santa Croce area we walked around the corner and gazed in surprise at the square we were standing in! We recognised the waiters and we decided to eat there that evening.
We had a lovely meal again, simple spaghetti bolognese and lasagne with a nice mixed salad. The waiter showed us a choice of wines that he recommended, he told us the prices and wasn't offended when we said that one was too expensive. The waitresses are like whirling dervishes, they run from the tables to the restaurant in double quick time!
At the end ofour meal the heavens opened, guests were quickly moved from outside to in with a lot of laughing and friendliness. We didn't need another table, we stood waiting with a complimentary limoncello whilst everyone was reseated.
Its good simple unpretentious tasty food served with a smile. And good value in Venice.

“Good food and good value”
Reviewed 14 May 2013

Just ate at this non-assuming trattoria in a quiet residential square. We had planned to eat at another place but it was closed for the evening so we took a chance on this place. Food was not extraordinary but was tasty and very reasonably priced. Well worth the money and a very pleasant experience. My husband and the fish dinner and I had the meat dinner. Not a huge portion but definitely filling. Red house wine was decent and very reasonable at 10 euro. We paid more at other places for less so if you're looking for a quiet but reasonably priced dinner this might be it.

“Very good restaurant”
Reviewed 12 May 2013 via mobile

Good and simple food, nice atmosphere, no rush and good prices. I would recommend this place for anyone who visit the area and do not look for tourist's overpriced bistros

“Good tasty tourist menu”
Reviewed 6 May 2013

Here the menu has a good selection. In addition, they have two good tourist menus, one fish, one meat. We visited several times, had the tourist menus, which don't change, and other meals off the menu. The spagetti bolognaise (a ragu) is really tasty. House wine is a good deal. Allow time after paying your bill, as you will get a free limoncello after! There are two toilets. The female one is for disabled. It can be a busy restaurant in the evening and the outside tables fill up too!
