Fodor's Review

Paolo and Laura, a brother-sister team, run this refined trattoria as if they've invited you to dinner in their home, while keeping the service professional. Deservedly popular with Venetians and visitors alike, it's one of the best values in the city. Indulge in pastas such as rigatoni with duck sauce and arugula-stuffed ravioli. Fish is well represented—try the sesame-encrusted tuna—but the meat dishes steal the show. The steak with red-pepper sauce and the tagliata

di agnello (sautéed lamb fillet with a light, crusty coating) are both superb, and you'll never enjoy a better fegato alla veneziana (Venetian-style liver with onions). This is a place for wine connoisseurs, as the cellar is one of the best in the city. Come at lunch or for the second sitting in the evening for more relaxed service.

Great place and easy to book online

This place made a great start to our Italian holiday. We booked online in advance as we knew it would be popular and were pleased to find our reservation in order when we arrived. A bustling restaurant with good food including some interesting local dishes. Well priced for Venice and to be recommended.

So good we went back the next day!

Seeing the great reviews we booked a table in advance for the Friday...during the secundo plati we asked if there was a table free the next day ! Highlights include Cuttlefish in its ink, lamb, gnochi, carpacio was superb, all the sides (best zucchini I've had)...and great desserts Scampi, beef fillet, fried fish were also good though not 5* Wines were generally very good (some slightly out of the way wines worth trying out), as was the service

Place was buzzing with locals, and the owner is a great charcter
