The restaurant is not really in what most people would consider Venice but in Assegiano close to Mestre (mainland) and can be reached only by car. But wow! Its totally worth the drive. The indoor is very elegant with cosy ambiance. Straight after you enter, a waiter would show up to pour you a glass of (very very good) prosecco. Then it only gets better. The menu is composed with different variations of fish-based positions. Everything smells and tastes wonderful. We recommend the raviolo aperto which was simply fantastic. Definately a place to go!

Firstly I contacted the restaurant to make a reservation using Facebook messenger, they responded quickly and efficiently. Every table was full for dinner so a reservation is essential.
You need to be aware the restaurant is in MESTRE and not in the city of Venice. We were staying at a hotel on The Grand Canal so took a private water taxi to Piazzale Roma ( approx €60 each way). When we got off the boat we then walked a few yards and took a taxi to the restaurant (approx €40 each way ). The water taxi and road taxi took approx 1 hour for us to reach the restaurant. There is no restaurant sign outside so the driver must know where to take you but it appears the local drivers know about this restaurant as it has a good reputation and is obviously popular with the locals. They only have about 40 covers plus a small private dining room. We were greeted by the chef and owner on arrival and shown straight to our table. The restaurant has a shabby chic decor, simple and clean but rather beautiful. We started our evening with Prosecco. I don't think they get many English tourists so they had especially made up a Menu of the day for us which was a lovely touch. We got by without speaking much Italian because one of the waiters spoke a little English.
We each had three courses plus desert, two bottles of wine and each and every mouthful was delicious. The service was very good and they couldn't have been more hospitable. I know the menu changes daily so recommending a certain dish would be a waste of time. They serve what is in season, and they do it very well.
We would certainly go back to this restaurant when we visit Venice again. I would say this is a great place for friends, families, business meetings or a romantic dinner. Our bill was approx €280 for three people plus travel to and from €200 so it wasn't a cheap evening out but worth the money.

Fish and seafood of excellent quality. You can find classic venetian dishes and also something new. Great atmosphere: quiet elegant relaxed and professionality.
