The service standards and food at this restaurant are second to none in Venice. At no stage did it feel stuffy or overbearing and all the staff were very attentive. We felt at home as soon as the patron greeted us at the door. Expensive...More

Great location and service, overpriced food. We had a lovely seafood meal and the waiters were very attentive but frankly the 2 course meal was not worth 65 euros per person.More

Perfect place for a date night. Romantic location and atmosphere. The charming restaurant owner introduces himself to every table and makes sure everything was perfect. The tasting menu was delicious. Expect perfectly plated small portions. The wait staff were happy to recommend wine pairings.

Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob
