Recommended by hotel staff where we are staying. Tasty food, the fillet steak and beef ragout were what we ordered, extensive wine list, short dessert list but tiramisu was good.

There is much better food available on the Lido. You may have to do some homework. You may have to go a little distance, but you can do much better than here.

We ate here as it was near our hotel. It was a super meal. Attentive waiting staff who were knowledgable about wines and menu. Food was delicious so we returned again even if we only had four nights in Venice. I would highly recommend eating here.

Used the reviews to choose this lovely restaurant and was not disappointed. Friendly and attentive service with great outdoor seating area. We had the taster menu which was superb and the wine was great. If we return to Lido we will dine here again.

We stayed at the Excelsior and walked less than 5 minutes to this fabulous spot. I had called earlier in the day to alter our reservation, and given that the Venice Film Festival was in town, I knew we were taking a chance. They were very accommodating and we thoroughly enjoyed our gastronomic experience. Ottavio, the Proprietor, is outstanding. Professional,... More

My girlfriend and I visited this restaurant on our last night in Venice. It was the perfect ending to our holiday. The food was amazing and the service was brilliant. All the staff made us feel very welcome and went the extra mile to make our dinner special. Would recommend it to anyone visiting Venice

The food was excellent, fish or meat. Ottavio and his mother are excellent guest and chef. I ate there every day during the film festival and its really worth the money.

Really nice local venue close to the Excelsior which was recommended by friends and lived up to its reputation. Take your insect spray as its close to the canal (but with no view over it) and has a nice outdoor terrace. Sensible prices, good food and worth a visit.
