The name ai Tre Scalini is somewhat misleading,as all the signs on the restaurant clearly and only mention " da Sandro", but the chef still wears his apron with the name Mistra ( the name of his previous restaurant) on it and confirmed the name Ai Tre Scalini.It's a 2 minutes walk into the Calle ( from the Zitelle vapotetto stop) and the restaurant has a nice giardino,so one can sit outside.
We had pesce al sale,a very fresh branzino in salt,excellently prepared.Reasonable prices for good food.Relatively simple menu,including pizza.For red wine try the Morellino di Scansano.

We were staying nearby on Giudecca and wanted a light dinner on our last night in Italy. We simply shared a pizza margerhita and a beer. The pizza was fine and more than large enough for two of us. We did see other people eating pastas that looked good and the adjacent table had a salt baked fish that looked impressive. It was a busy night and there's only one waitress who was friendly but harried.

I am someone who couldn't think of anything worse than an overpriced tourist restaurant, if you are similar, this place is for you. I had a very big, simple and fresh whole seabass with grilled veg for €22. It was probably big enough for two with a side but I hadn't eaten all day. The decor is non existent and the food is not glamorous. It is home cooked simple Italian fare that will be a welcome respite from Venetian tourist traps. The waitress and chef were lovely. I enjoyed my dinner here and, if I'd been able to stomach more pizza there were very delicious looking ones for only €7-8. The house red was pretty sweet, next time I think I'll pay a bit more for an upgrade! Definitely not haute cuisine but an enjoyable place anyway.

We stumbled on this café after our rather smart destination was closed due to a function. A great window on the Italian normal world and a fantastic HUGE set lunch for 15 Euros. well worth the trip, fresh fab and tasty.

This is a excellent unpretentious restaurant which seems to be mainly frequented by people living in the area. Having read some of the reviews, we went for dinner on a very cold Saturday evening in January, only to be met by an apologetic owner who was closing early. We did however return the following day for lunch. We were guided by the owner (who speaks excellent English) in our choice of food, and enjoyed both pasta and fish dishes - these exceeded our expectations.

The restaurant is on Guidecca, and probably the most convenient way of getting there from St Marks is by Vaporetto route 2 to Zitelle. The restaurant is down the road immediately opposite the exit from the Vaporetto stop. This is not necessarily the cheapest food you will find in Venice, but for the quality it is not expensive, and you will certainly be made to feel very welcome and have a very enjoyable meal. We heartily recommend this restaurant.
