My wife and I drove here from nearby Padova to celebrate her birthday. It was our first time, and we were not disappointed. The Slovenian Malvasia we drank paired excellently with the very fresh seafood, and the staff was super attentive. The sociable owner Hedi (Eddy) greeted us tableside and asked if we'd like to start with appetizers, which we heartily agreed to. Thus began a nice sequence of small plates that included soft polenta with moscardini (little octopus), followed by an array of traditional boiled, local shellfish, and sfogio in saor (sweet 'n sour flounder). Next came three small servings of pasta: ghochetti with porcini and ventresca, risotto alla pescatora, and spaghetti with bottarga di muggine and vongole (clams). By that point we were full, so we skipped main courses and dessert, which we would have liked to have tried. Next time we come we now know that we should assert our preferences ahead of time so that we might have had fewer starter and first course plates to leave room for a local main dish and dessert.

Not easy to find (giare is the place your car computer should recognize) we went for a Sunday lunch and took our little dog with us.No problem,the dog has been offered a bowl of water within seconds.The service during our meal was efficient and friendly.My request halfway our lunch to add another plate that I just saw pass by,was followed up efficiently.

The scampi,fish etc were fresh and well prepared.Quite a few locals for Sunday lunch,that's good.

This had to be the best value restaurant we went to during a week tour of Northern Italy. We found it by accident as it is a bit off the beaten track. We were made very welcome as I shouldn't think they see many British customers. The food was excellent, and by the time we left, the restaurant was absolutely brimming with local customers, who obviously know where to go for the best local food.
If you want the real deal with local fresh fish and don't want to pay a fortune, I suggest you pay a visit. Recommended.
