Being sat in the corner of an alleyway didn’t fill me with hope, neither did the emotionless waiter. However I soon changed my mind, especially after I set light to the menu then proceeded to throw my cutlery on the floor 😀. Everybody had a...More

We ate dinner here last night. The restaurant itself is very cute with friendly servers. We are vegetarians, and we mentioned that- we ordered fried mozzarella - on the menu it simply states fried mozzarella - it has anchovy in it. My family is strict...More

Simply amazing food. You can taste the love used in preparing the meal with every bite. The staff were warm and very helpful. They took very good care of our gluten and dairy allergies (crab pasta was gf df).

Food was good. Not exceptional but good quality. A bit pricey for what you get. But the location is great, seating is excellent and the staff is very courteous.

Venice: you are warned about tourist traps... this is NOT one. High quality, service, wines and food. The rabbit pasta "was the best I have ever had" (My companion trained as a chef so high praise). Staff are fun too !

San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the
Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six
sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest
neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the
markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops
display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San
Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi)
stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San

The restaurant is down the street from the famous Rialto open market. Chef Riccardo known as "Ricky" spends his early morning hours selecting only the best products, be it local line caught fish or even local grown vegetables from St. Erasmo island, creating dishes that reflect the smells and tastes of the lagoon. Our menu is a mix of typical Venetian dishes rethought and exquisite Italian cuisine. Only ingredients of the highest quality such as "Pasta felecetti" from Trento lcated at the feet of the Dolomite Alps, Matera bread baked in a wood oven (Basilicata Region), meat from Piedmont Region and of course, extra vergine olive oil-EVO from Tuscany. Our wines are chosen from a variety of regions that enhance the food choices of the moment.
