Small restaurant located close to the main touristic areas. Food was ok. Service was very rude when it came to payment and we were not granted the full discount.

Set is a small Venetian courtyard it's a quaint setting. Great range of pizza to choose from and a litre of house wine is always a nice extra. The service was fine, not the best we had whilst in Venice but also not bad by any means! The 30% via the fork also made it a fantastic price.

I chose this restaurant based on the almost stellar reviews...which, sorry to say, are somewhat misleading. On he plus side: the place is relatively cheap, and in a quiet back street away from the crowds. Service was fast and correctly prized(espcially for Venice).no surprises or rip-offs. The pizza was not bad. On the negative side:the waiter seemed unfriendly and careless(probably overworked) , tables a bit dirty, the area smelled of some dog pee which wasn’t very appetizing. They forgot to give us cutlery. The pizzas we ordered were okay, not bad but not the best either. I’d recommend this place to families and tourist groups for a quick lunch, couples should seek a romantic evening out elsewhere.

We arrived at 10pm, after making a reservation online. I’ll start with the ambiance. The seating was outside and it was still somewhat busy on the street. Nice set up, clean tables. The waiter was a little bit rushed to start but realized quickly that we weren’t having that and changed his demeanour around. The reason we were there was to eat.. and let me tell you.. the food was delicious and plentiful. Our whole meal with a bottle of wine and 2 spritzs came out to about $110 CAD and we had food leftover to take to our air bnb. Our experience turned out pretty great after our initial impression HOWEVER was challenged at the end. We noticed that they were packing up and closing down. We offered to settle up, pack up leftovers AND take plastic cups for our wine so that we can get out of their hair. Our waiter and a bus boy were lovely about it and we’re making an effort to make sure that we don’t feel rushed until one of the dishwashers came out from the back and very rudely told us that they’re trying to close up. Considering that we suggested to take away and get out of their hair- his abrupt comment and start of moving the table directly beside us made us very uncomfortable. My husband was ready to go after this but I wasn't going to be carrying all of this stuff while having my smoke. We decided once I’ll finish, we’ll go. Unfortunately, although the food was great and service was on the better side of average.. this fella left a bad finishing impression and I highly doubt we’ll return because of this. For simply good food and very fair prices, this place is highly recommended but beware that some staff aren’t as pleasant as others and could leave a sour taste in your mouth!

The food was very good - Pizza and Pasta for a decent price in a location that was near to the main tourist streets but still a bit off the beaten track. We were seated and served quickly but our waiter wasn't really that attentive compared to some of the others. However we couldn't complain about the food and we would eat there again.

Workers are great. They were so kind enough, they try to recommend the foods I like. But the pasta noodle was cooked too much, black pasta sauce is strange and risotto soso.

They didn't mention or apply the 30% Fork discount & I was too embarrassed to ask for it. Other restaurants have automatically applied any discount to our bill which I appreciate. The value was still very good.

We had steak and scallopini. Both were cooked to perfection. We complimented our main courses with grilled vegetables and a mixed salad. Very good flavor from the grill. A nice discount from tripadvisor.com made it a great evening.

I had the seafood pizza, which was off and I had to spit out to avoid being poisoned. There was a decent quantity of shellfish, both in and out of their shells. The ones out of their shells I'm assuming were from a jar and were fine. The "fresh" clams and mussels in their shells sitting on the top of the pizza were off. Not a pleasant experience, but the rest of the family had other dishes with no complaints. In summary, go somewhere else if you want seafood.

Second meal there in as many days.
We all had different dishes to our first visit there and we all really enjoyed them.
Service was again of a high standard.
Thoroughly recommend this place.

We had very bad service. It was a Saturday night during Carnevale, so it was busier than normal. We had to sit outside, but that was ok for us. They were just short staffed. I ordered water and a glass of wine that I never received (but also wasn't charged for.) Unfortunately, like the service, the food wasn't good. My husband got a steak that wasn't even seasoned with salt and pepper, it was bland and over cooked. Both of our meals came with fries, but we were not offered any condiments (like ketchup, mayo, or even salt and pepper.) We would not eat here again.

We had a dinner at Al Faro on the New Year Eve. Although the prices were higher than usual for that occasion, we really enjoyed the food with local touch and the service, so I would recommend this place.
