Fodor's Review

At the convivial, crowded Al Mascaron, with its paper tablecloths and informal atmosphere, you'll likely find locals who drop in to gossip, drink, play cards, and eat cicchetti at the bar—but there are also plenty of travelers who return again and again to take advantage of the food and the hospitality. You can count on well prepared fish, pasta, risotto, and seafood salads. Locals complain that the prices have become somewhat inflated, but grudgingly admit that the food is good.

Tourist trap

This place is listed in too many guidebooks: the service is arrogant, they like to serve either wrong dishes or ignore the order of "uno per due". Summary: The quality is average, and the price for some dishes is obscene... Of course the same holds true for Alle Testiere, but this is another story. And at Alle Testiere fortunately you never get a table without reservation, so you could easily miss this trap.
