Nice pizza good price close to San Marco , staff friendly nice atmosphere. Good coffee after dinner gave us free shot of limoncello, would recommend especially as you can pay nearly 20 euro just for a Margherita two minute around corner!

Cute, relatively quite place. Fresh see food, polite and attentive waiters. Would recommend for fish lovers in the middle of noisy day. We took fish soup and pasta with see food - both were good. Good quality, more than enough in one portion.

We were encouraged to go in by a friendly waiter, previously confirming there was lasagna (best in Venice, he told us) and a/c. In our corner there was no wifi and our assigned waiter was arrogant and pushy. Drinks extremely expensive and side costs. Kids...More

Stopped in by chance at a slow time of the day. Got great service and very good food. The tortellini was great, and I washed it down with their "Best Bellini in Venice." My first Bellini, so I couldn't disagree, but it WAS good. The...More

streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals
criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a
