Delicious food and great service! My only criticism is the harsh strip lighting. The atmosphere would be improved hugely with more subtle lighting or lamps. Otherwise an excellent place to eat.

Cute authentic restaurant on the edge of the canal. We had a seafood platter for two (which was not on the menu) it was delicious. Only downside was that it didn't have much sides to accompany the seafood. We got one slice of courgette (to share), one disk of aubergine (to share), 2slices of bell pepper each. Would have been nice to have some potatoes maybe. Service was great couldn't fault it.

Extreme good table service, they borrow us chargers for our phone and they even help us crack the shell of lobster. Free wine shots serve as an appetizer. Fresh lobster and mussels. Venice risotto (Cuttlefish) is great as well. They even gave us small gifts (raw Cuttlefish spaghetti and muffins with gift bags) after our dinning.

Recommended by trip advisor and the restaurant was even better than stated. Delicious free speciality drinks at beginning and end. The meal chosen was shrimp and mushroom pizza. Every mouthful was delicious and salad with it was fresh. The setting was pure Venice, right next to the canal. The service was friendly and efficient. Great place to go and booking from Australia worked.

This restaurant was an amazing find. From the moment we walked till the time we left everything was fantastic. The pasta seafood with lobster was outstanding! The waiter even helped crack the lobster. Grilled vegetables were great. The owner stopped by several times to talk with us and even helped us get to the vaporetto which is 3 minutes away. Overall wonderful experience!

Wow! What a find.

It was so lovely to be warmly greeted by the owner of this small and informal restaurant after a hard days walking around Venice.

The food was excellent. It was freshly prepared and cooked to order and it was delicious.

The location, being on the bank of a large canal was another big plus point. Very romantic.

We really enjoyed our meal.

After a long day travelling it was nice to sit and enjoy being waited on. Service was excellent, just the right amount of attentiveness.

Wide variety of food and wines.

You can sit inside or outside but we opted to sit inside as it was a bit cold.
It was my birthday and they acknowledged that which was lovely.

The Pizzas look good so I’m sure we will be back before we leave.
