Traditional food, but with beautiful presentation. Enjoyed fresh locally caught fish from the Adriatic. The wine list was very good, and the service efficient but friendly. We were there in September, so were able to sit outside - mosquitoes are a problem in warmer weather...More

When we were in Venice last month a friend had recommended this restaurant- it’s a short walk from San Marcos Square but well worth it. Even though we were a few minutes early for our reservation they seated us promptly- very fresh seafood and the...More
