Locally owned & operated restaurant nestled in the heart of Historic Downtown Venice. Convenient to shops, entertainment and parking. Excellent, food & service. A not-to-be-missed dining experience. Great for out of town guests or just a cozy dinner for two.

This was an enjoyable restaurant but nothing exceptional. Service was good. Food was well prepared, tasty but not delicious. The pan seared grouper portion was small, and the advertised “piccata” style was untraditional and disappointing. The veal medallions portions were small, but the accompanying Boursin...More
