    Everything was excellent. Amazing food, great service, fabulous ambiance. The pasta with Parmesan and truffles was incredible and I loved with soufflé with pistachios. My favorite meal in Venice.

    This was a great find. The service was amazing, and the presentation of the food and wine was superb! It was one of the best meals we had during our entire vacation.

    I came here for my birthday meal! A touch of fine dining with incredible authentic and well presented food. Delicious food and great views of an open square and a nice relaxed ambiance. Service was professional although I think they were getting busy, as we started to feel rushed (different courses stacked on the table or forced on) and the staff occasionally got our orders mixed up with the table beside us (it didn't help that they were willingly accepting our orders knowing they were wrong). This was a minor flaw though and I would definitely return again.

    We had the sea bass special and it was the best meal we had in Venice. They have a lovely interior so I recommend sitting inside if you get the chance.

    Service was great. They were friendly and attentive. The food was very good abs we enjoyed people watching from our table. The bacala appetizer was nice. We enjoyed it with the bread on the table. My spaghetti with lam cheese and truffle was very good. Definitely a rich dish. My husbands lamb shank was very flavorful.

    They didn’t seem to have our name down for a reservation but made it work, and considering how popular they are, that was impressive. The food was amazing and the service good. We enjoyed ourselves immensely.

    The food was OK but nothing special (in comparison with other meals from the weekend). The staff were a bit brusque, tables packed quite close together. Definitely not a bad experience but not as good as others.
