Location and contact

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.

Tucked off the side of bustling streets this little restaurant shines so brightly! Wonderful food and wine and so intimate.

We stumbled across this place on trip advisor and it was excellent. Wonderful Italian food and great service. Also very handy that you can book online, saves a lot of walking around! Best scallops I’ve ever had.

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
