“Charming, friendly and tasty. One of the best”
Reviewed 18 June 2014 via mobile

We found this on tripadvisor and sniffed it out after reading the reviews. Very unassuming frontage but very charming and intimate inside. Great host who took time with us to interpret the menu and even made a special dish for my partner who doesnt like seafood. mixed seafood spaghetti was delicious and fresh and the tomato basil pasta made on request was also outstanding. Chatted to the owner for an hour at the bar afterwards while enjoying his favourite locally brewed beer.

“Great Restaurant in Mestre”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

This excellent restaurant may be little tricky to find but with google maps you can find it just fine- follow the route. We heard of this restaurant on trip advisor and decided to give it a go but beware it is not opened on Sunday and Monday so we returned on Tuesday. The restaurant was very busy with people standing outside having their spritz and cichetti, but we were lucky to get a table so would recommend booking.
The restaurant is very atmospheric and friendly and the menu is very limited. It is only fish no red meet or vegetarian. Starters for €10 and main €12. The food was delicious and with only 3 things to choose from each you know it's very fresh and local. I had ravioli followed by sea-bass and I was full after that. My husband had carpaccio followed by frittata- various fired sea creatures. We had 0.5l of white wine and 0.5 litre of prosceco and one ice cream to share and only one coffee. The bill came to very reasonable €62. We left generous tip and would definitely recommend and return but probably book so not to he turned away

“Step inside, it is has a great atmosphere!”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

Located in Marghera, perfect place lunch, snacks and Spritzer!
From the outside it looks like a small place with no extra decoration, but when you step inside there is a huge restaurant with bar! It has a nostalgic note about past time. We came in launch time, and it was full. Also the manager gave us free snacks, so it goes gently with our drinks! Lovely atmosphere!

“Good food, good value”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

Due to the tripadvisor reviews we found this restaurant, a little tricky, on a Monday evening, the night they are not open. So we went back on Tuesday and ate tapas at the bar because it was the last night of Festival and the restaurant was fully booked. We loved it and ate in the restaurant the next evening and had tapas again on the third night. Did not need to think of going anywhere else nice food, good drink, friendly staff and customers lovely atmosphere. The place we will both miss the most in Venice.

“What a surprise!”
Reviewed 8 November 2013

Casual restaurant with fresh food, cooked with care. We ate for entree "scheti" with white polenta and baby octopus stewed in tomato sauce. Below we ordered a shrimp pasta aglio e olio with shrimps and crumb and a fantastic plate of black tagliolini with cherry tomatoes and shrimps. Good house wine and coffee at the end ... unforgettable dinner with 22 € per person!
