Very welcoming staff. The restaurant was busy with 2 large groups but service was nevertheless fast and efficient. Good and varied wine selection - we tried the organic rose Pinot and it was excellent. The dishes are exceptionally well presented and tasted of good quality fresh ingredients. Interior was traditional Italian but not the 'stereotype' Italian restaurant style sometimes found in Italian style restaurants outside of Italy.

A lovely true Italian restaurant, the food was delicious and the service was very good. Would definitely recommend for anyone visiting Venice wanting an authentic meal away from the tourist hotspots

Service was good, food was very good. Be aware that the bottled water will cost you 4 euros. One of us ordered the chef's special which included dessert but both of us received dessert (not ordered) and were charged for the second dessert which we thought was complimentary. Check your bill!

You took a booking for me for a Tuesday night. When we managed to find the place it was shut. It is shut on a Tuesday. It was my birthday dinner. Unforgivable.

We were the only ones in the restaurant upon arrival and it still took about 15 minutes to get our drink orders taken. The chef recommended the Venetian Fried Seafood plate saying it was delcious and a venetian classic. Both that and the spaghetti with clams came incredibly salty to thepoint that neither of us could finish the meal. To top it all off, a 4 euro cover charge per person. i definitely would not recommend this restaurant to thise visiting venice

The setting in the courtyard of this restaurant was nice and the service was friendly. The problem was the dish we both ordered was not at all like the description. It was described as pasta with shrimp, crab and cherry tomatoes. What arrived was three whole shrimp with heads on and very little meat, no visible crab and no cherry tomatoes. When I told the waiter, he brought out a small dish of sauce with a few bits of crab and no tomatoes. Certainly not enough to add to our plates. One waiter said "the chef must have been asleep". Just another disappointing meal in Venice for a high price.
