Like most other reviewers we made the mistake of eating here - we were tired and hungry and near desperate for a place to sit down and grab a bite to eat. More than ever I am convinced I need to get an iPhone so I can check TripAdvisor online before trying out an unknown restaurant while traveling. Talk about... More

Made the mistake of picking this place to have a nice lunch while in Burano but also made the mistake of not noticing the microscopic printing on the menu that said "Coperto - Servizio-15 %" We knew that a coperto would be charged as that is customary everywhere we have been traveling in Italy for 8 weeks but NO WHERE...

Although the waiter did not seem to know anything about the reservation I had made via Tripadvisor we still got a table right next to the channel. The food was good - my risotto really nicely cooked. The service was okay. Great place to people und Burano watch.

Had lunch today here. It was a pleasant experience, food was tasty, really large portions (too large in my opinion), friendly waiters. Prices were good, for 20 euro you can have a full menu with first, second, desert and coffee. That is more than reasonable. All in all we enjoyed the place, and we reccoment it!

Ended up at Al Vecio Pipa by chance. Didn't have lunch there which I regret as I have read many good reviews about the food. But I did have my first spritz in here which I really liked. The staff was really hospitable, so much that they gave me a birthday dessert, it was lovely as well. The staff was... More

The place looked like a standard trattoria; basically ok. The food was mediocre and the price value ratio was really poor. We had much better meals for this price in Venice. We ended up paying a lot of money and discovered that out of the 198 euro bill 15 euros was for copperta (cover charge) and 25 euros for service... More

We spent a Sunday lunch at Vecio Pipa and we found it very delicious! Even it was very busy, we were waiting for our table only 5 minutes (not pre-booking was done), the service was fast and the staff was very attentive and friendly! The portions we ordered were quite big and the seafood in my pasta (linguini con frutti... More

We popped in for a rest stop and both had a hot chocolate with cream. It was delicious, my wife described it as "the best hot chocolate ever" although as others have commented, it was rather pricey. €10 for the drinks and we were also given a few biscuits but in a place where it costs €1.50 to take a...

The lovely island of Murano offered a lot of sights and surprises and we count this restaurant as one of them. The chalkboard screamed an affordable set meal promotion and looked very inviting. However, as we could not stomach a huge meal, we gave it a pass. Lunch was our usual vegetable soup, pasta with tomatoes and chicken chop. All... More

We were here to visit Burano briefly after being recommended to eat here rather than stay on Murano, the no.1 choice was closed being a Monday and after walking around and feeling rather hungry we chose here simply because it came across friendly and they had a €20 set lunch menu which ticked the box...and we could feed our young...
