New owners. Food from start to finish was incredible. Service was awesome. The wood burning oven baked Brie wrapped in prosciutto topped with arugula was to die for! The owners take a lot of pride in the ambiance and walk around making sure everyone is happy and taken care of. Will definitely be back!

A friend recommended this restaurant, so we went following a symphony matinee. As usual, finding a parking space in downtown Venice was a challenge. We got there between 5:30 and 6:00 - we had called ahead to say we were on our way -- they do not take reservations. Primarily because we had been told that they make their own... More

We had heard great things about the pizza at this restaurant. It was my birthday, so we decided on trying it out. Service was great and the server was very friendly and polite. We were seated in the back room (which I didn't even know existed). It's a little noisy but rather cozy. We ordered a pizza with tomatoes, cheese,... More

I love risotto and this was one of the best risotto stateside I have ever had. The service was excellent. My husband had a great Pounded and fried chicken topped with arugula, cherry tomato and avocado. We will be returning next week. We ate at around 2pm on a Saturday.

So we dined here for the 2nd time tonight. The 1st time our experience was very good, which is why we came again. Tonight we experienced some issues. First of all, our server. I'm sorry, but if you're working front of house in the service industry, you need to have a grasp of the English language in America. Our server... More

On a warm January evening my husband & I enjoyed a wonderful dinner here. We were able to sit outside for dinner, which was an added bonus from escaping briefly from the Rhode Island winter. The waiter was informative about the menu, friendly and the food was fantastic. We highly recommend this restaurant that reminded us of our travels to... More

Went on Christmas Eve following evening vigil service. The food was very good and the service was impeccable and fairly quick for our party of 13. I really enjoyed the beef carpaccio appetizer and squid ink noodles with seafood. The kids loved the pizza which is really fun to get because it is so large. They were very accommodating with...

We went to this restaurant today which was recommended by my aunt and uncle. Food was amazing and so delicious. Gianni was our waiter but I'm pretty sure he's a manager or something like that. Everything he recommended we ate and was delicious. If you go don't even look at the menu. Just ask Gianni what he recommends and don't... More
