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.

I think everything is fresh. They bake their own bread. The wine selection is excellent. This fine restaurant needs our support while all this Venice Ave construction is going on.
