Food was delicious. We ate outside, despite re-paving of Venice Ave. (hopefully completed soon). Service was good.

Centrally located downtown on Venice Avenue. Authentic Italian menu, expertly prepared and presented. We had a seafood risotto and a fine tiramisu. The wine list was impressive. Outdoor seating should be available again soon. Give them a try.

Overpriced.Everything is a la carte. Heavy sauces. Misrepresented in description on menu.. Service good. Waiter pushy and upsells. There are plenty of other great Italian restaurants in Venice. It was no wonder that the restaurant was empty on a Friday night.
