“Atmospheric, lovely food and great staff”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

My wife and I ate here on Saturday 10 May 2014 having pre-booked. The staff were most welcoming and helpful in helping us choose our food and recommending wine to accompany our choices. The food was of a high quality and we based our selections around the fish. Food was served at well spaced intervals and simply delicious.The complimentary prosseco and limoncello/grapa rounded off a perfect evening in one of the most delightful restaurants I have visited. I cannot help repeating that the staff were brilliant and the live music a delight. Do visit this restaurant - if we go back to Venice we will.

“Lovely lunch”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

We ate here on the recommendation of friends and loved it. Great atmosphere, friendly waitress, soft jazz playing in the background. We had to wait for 10 minutes for a table but we were immediately given 2 glasses of prosseco on the house while waiting. Lovely seafood and the pasta and gnocchi were perfectly cooked. With a jug of house prosseco to wash it all down it was a lovely leisurely lunch and very reasonably priced. We will return. Thank you barbacani. This was our first lunch on arrival in Venice yesterday and a great start to our long week end break.
