Amazing venetian food and tapas ("cicchetti"). If you are in the mood for fish this is the place for you. Very good and typical, like a travel in time when restaurants had a personality (this surely has one)

After a day at Venice Island, we decided to not eat on the island, and tried out this place. The ambience is bustling. We ordered the food, found them very reasonably priced. Had a great time eating and chatting in the warmth of the restaurant.

This cute little place is tucked away almost in the heart of a quiet suburb. My partner and I stuffed ourselves with the most amazing squid ever, 2 "stuffed eggplant things", stuffed squid, tuna croquette, a deep fried piece of fish, prawn arancini balls, prawn skewers, battered & fried mozzarella and two drinks each! The owner is well-travelled and really... More

This is a wonderful example of a popular, authentic Italian bar and restaurant. We went at lunchtime, and had the choice of bar snacks or table service. The bar snacks are incredible - squid, scallops, prawns, baccala which have been grilled or deep-fried to perfection. You can even have freshly made seafood risotto at the bar - really superb. There... More

We stumbled upon this place while walking around and were attracted by the crowd outside. We had been in Venice for a week and this was the highlight eating wise. The tapas are great as is the wine, the prices are low and the atmosphere is superb. Go there!

Definitely a local hangout. Minimal English spoken. Only serve tapas at night, no meals. If you speak Italian you'll be fine but we got so little help we eventually had to leave.

In December 2014 we drove to Venice and stopped in Marghera for lunch. And, what a lunch... surpassed all our expectations. I shall always remember this restaurant and will certainly recommend it to others. And surprise, surprise... when the time came to pay the bill and when we offered a "tip" the management said "NO TIPS ARE ALLOWED HERE". I... More
