From the moment we stepped inside this establishment we knew it was going to be a good experience. Although very laid back as far as the owner's behaviour was concerned the waiter (on his own) did a great job looking after every table.We thoroughly enjoyed our seafood dishes and grilled vegetables and the house wine was a very acceptable Pinot Grigio.

Visited the other week. Food was ok but nothing special, can't see why it's rated so highly in an area out of the tourist area.

A night we won’t forget for the rest of our lives! No really, it is not a joke! Fresh and delicious food, great wine recommendation from the owner of the restaurant and unprecedented levels of warmth in the hosting from Alessio (star waiter) and Kliff (genius cook). After a lovely meal of fresh fish of all kinds from the lagoon, we stayed chatting and laughing late into the night, which was the perfect end to our time in Venice! Thanks guys :)

Since this restaurant is only steps from the San Basilio vaporetto stop, we had walked by it several times without considering to stop and eat there. Also, it is on a small street, with people walking by as they come and go to the vaporetto. It looked rustic, a basic trattoria. The surprise is that the food is much better than that. Happily, the chef is not overly ambitious. The dishes are straightforward, but with excellent quality ingredients and not overly cooked. The menu is short, but they are willing to try to accommodate diners (e.g.,, if you want a different sauce on a preferred type of pasta). Service was attentive. When we commented on how hot it was (this was during a heat wave), the waiter brought an ice bucket for our white wine and also put in the bottle of mineral water to keep it cool. I ended the meal with watermelon -- the most sweet I have had in many years.

This is not along the beaten path but I suggest you beat a path to it. Walk straight back from the S. Basilio vaporetti stop. One of the best meals we had in Venice! The food is outstanding and the wait staff and owner treated us like we were there regular customers. I wish we could have gone twice!
