This restaurant shouldn't be at the top rated restaurants in Venice. The food is bad/average (not fresh ingredients) and the service is just OK. You'll find better options in Venice.

Great tasty food and very good local wine! Excellent welcoming service from our waiter Rimon, which make the experience this evening perfect for all of us. We highly recommend this place, and will visit again whenever our next opportunity might be.

We had a wonderful dinner here . We had reservation and were taken right in. (Don’t know if we needed them but the place is small & was full the whole time we were there). Tania our server was very attentive. We had the Penne...pasta and Steak tagliatelle with arugula and Parmesan on top . We enjoyed both and the steak was cooked perfect! The Caprece salad was good also ! We were even treated to a lemon cello& Grappa drink after dinner! We would definitely recommend this restaurant.More

One of the most delicious meals we had in Venice – they managed to squeeze us in for dinner at short-ish notice and we are so so grateful! You won't be disappointed no matter what you order. The staff are so kind and super attentive;...I clumsily knocked over a Bellini and they brought me another one on the house, with a joke and a smile to ease the embarrassment. A queue formed very quickly (unsurprisingly given how good it was!) so would definitely recommend booking in advance if possible. Many many thanks from three young Londoners who only wish they could have tipped more! :)More

Being one of the first on Tripadvisor I was expecting much more, but overall was all good, the food tasted good, nothing exceptional and the service even if a bit slow really polite, I would recommend it.

I don't even LIKE seafood. Yet, the stew was amazing. 12/10, charming ambiance and friendly service. Extremely highly recommended

We had dinner here tonight. Absolutely incredible food. The staff were lovely. I didn’t really want much to eat as I had eaten lots of overly food during the day so opted for the pasta arrabbiata. I’m not a lover of tomato’s so this was...a risky option. One I am very glad to have taken! It was beautiful nice and spicy but not hot, not too much of a full tomato taste but very much there and the pasta had a nice amount of bite too it- just how pasta should be. I wish I could take some home with me. My partner had a pizza and he said it was really good. We also had pudding of tiramisu and pan Panna cotta. Both were really beautiful. The pan a cotta was so creamy and had a lovely fresh taste. Thankyou for being so welcoming considering we were very early for our reservation.More

We tried to eat here one night, but was too busy, so booked for the following night. Lucky we did as they started to turn away customers. There is a small outside seating area, but we chose inside due to variable weather. The restaurant has...two sittings, 19:00 nd 21:00, something I think is a positive. You know you have the table for a period of time and the restaurant knows it has confirmed numbers. This is important when your restaurant is as busy as this one and recovering from the Covid impact. My wife had fillet with a pepper sauce - 26.00 euros, with side order of fries - 6.00. I had a pizza with tuna and onions - 12.00. Food was excellent! We had aqua 1l 4.00, 40cl beer, 6.50 and a vino 6.00. This was followed by tiramisu 7.00 and pannacotta 6.00. Everything was excellent. The service was brilliant, our waiter, really sorry I did not get you name, was friendly and funny. He absolutely ripped me for my poor Italian, but in such a friendly way. Although I have to say I did not get that same warm feeling when I tried to book on the Sunday when they were already fully booked, I felt like an inconvenience. Hey-ho. I absolutely recommend this establishment, I just don't know why we have not discovered this place in our previous 10 visits. Perfection.More

The place is small so I would recommend a reservation, which I did easily through Facebook. Menu was relatively large and varied. We tried several pastas including the tortellini with zucchini and ham, cuttlefish with black ink, and sea bass. The waitress was kind enough...to filet the sea bass and remove the skin. The food was excellent as was the service. Prices very reasonable. Highly recommend this place!More

Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district)
with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many
transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying
areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand
for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal
bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution,
2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli
Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby
