Maybe it was a bad night, who knows. it was recommended by the hotel and we had a reservation. We also waited over an hour to sit down, not being offered any wine, etc. Part of the problem is that there is outside dining. People kept just sitting down at the tables and the waiters didn't run them off.

After waiting forever, we were finally able to order; they somehow forgot our order and didn't realize it until we spoke up. The pasta came immediately, having been sitting under a heat lamp.

Venice isn't known for good food and this restaurant is certainly an example.

Located in a quaint piazza and serves a nice selection of pasta and seafood dishes. We had dinner there and ordered the squid ink pasta, sea bass, and spaghetti al vongole. We loved the food there so much that we came back for lunch the next day!

Came to this restaurant two times for good quality ravioli. Waitstaff were polite. Complimentary limoncello once we finished our dinner.
Will comeback again.

We stumbled upon this restaurant on the first night of our stay in Venice. Having not had lunch we were starving. With no prior expectations, we sat down to be waited by incredibly friendly staff, one in particular with a beaming smile.

The courtyard setting was, intimate and romantic. Ideal for couples looking to enjoy a quiet meal together.

The selection on the menu was vast and service was quick. The food tasted great and the presentation of the desert was fantastic. We enjoyed the experience and food so much that we returned on our final night to experience the same satisfaction as we did on our first.

We will be returning in the future!

This was just about Ok, but I;m not in a rush to go back. Firstly, it's a restaurant, not an Osteria. We just stumbled upon this restaurant and had been walking around a bit looking for dinner and went here just because we were here and was a bit fed up of looking around. With hindsight, we probably should have passed on by. Service wasn't slow, but it was very dull. There was no sense of atmosphere from the waiting staff. We sat outside as it was a lovely warm evening and unfortunately, not the restaurant's fault I would guess, there was a whiff of the sewers. The food was not fantastic. it was alright, but certainly forgettable. For the price, I expected more. You can tell from the other reviews that this restaurant appears to be a bit hit and miss. For me it was a miss.
