We have visited Venice before and luckily found this place on our first visit, and it was so good we have returned each time. The restaurant is tucked away not far from St Lucia Ferrovia but worth the hunt. It is a typical italian restaurant...More

A superb meal in a friendly restaurant that filled up quickly! We were lucky to find it and get a table when we did. We both ordered the caprese but there was enough that one could have been shared as was so plentiful. I would...More

Wonderful place for a meal on any occasion but booked ahead before we arrived for the wife’s birthday. Food was delicious, staff friendly (especially when making an effort and speaking Italian) and prices very reasonable for Venice. Great night!!

Even if in a remote location, the walk is worthwhile. You will find good food, good service, good wines and a nice and warm atmosphere. You should try the venetian style sardines for appetizer.

Santa Croce
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district)
when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring
cars and buses close to the center of Venice.
Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking
Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes
with energy from travelers and students. Historic
palaces and former industrial buildings house some
departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture
