Accross the entrance of my AirB&B. Looked good, so had to try it. Great experience from start to finish. Impecable service, great wine list and interesying food. The octopus salad was amazing, followed by the coffee crusted Pork was a winner. Wasn’t going to have dessert - but the hazelnut gelato with salted caramel sauce and percorino cheese won me over! Amazing combination! Highly recommended! Very small, recommend you book. A group of 6 came in, wasn’t prepared to wait the 5 or so minutes it would have taken to reset a table - their loss!

This restaurant is small, located hear the heart of the San Marco district, on a small side street. If you find it, you will be rewarded with authentic Venetian food at a reasonable price, with great wine choices and attentive, friendly waiters. I would stick to ordering seafood dishes, stay away from heavier and more "odd" local Venetian specialties like the liver or the black squid ink preparations. We had two seafood dishes which we thoroughly enjoyed. Their menu is so extensive and varied, that I look forward to returning and trying out some of the other offerings. This restaurant is head and shoulders above the usual restaurants you find in Venice. Also, I note locals frequent this place.

One of the Best meals we had in Venice. Both the lamb and the veal with polenta were excellent. Good wine menu. Lovely ambiance. Would definitely recommend.

Cozy little osteria hidden behind San Marco square. The food is tasty and nicely presented. Friendly staff. Great experience but a bit expensive for a “quick lunch”.

We originally went to their sister restaurant (Osteria Enoteca San Marco) but it was fully. booked and they told us of this restaurant. We have since eaten at both restaurants and the quality of cooking in both are excellent. I actually prefer the dishes and the ambience in this one compared to its glitzier counterpart. This restaurant is warm, cozy and the food amazing. We had wine, octopus starter (to die for!!) , a market vegetable pasta, sardine tagleirini and steak (generous portion of juicy medium rare beef!). Bill came up to about €100 which was surprisingly reasonable. By contrast, we ate at Enoteco San Marco their sister restaurant and the bill was about double this for the same quality.
