We had an amazing lunch. The restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel and truly lived up to the hype. Local seafood featured. Sea bass baked in salt was wonderful. Soft shell crab and scallops were lovely. Wine recommendations and in particular the sweet...wine for pudding were superb. Paolo and his family were consummate hosts.More

We found this place by accident and we had an amazing experience. Typical Italian family cantina with great food, wine and specialty a very warm service by the family itself. We were lucky enough that both of the owners and their daughter waited on us....They gave us recommendations of what were the fresh fish and seafood of the day and helped us throughout the whole lunch. We highly recommend them!More

The food was good, but 40 eur for squid, their special that wasn’t on the menu, was definitely overpriced! Also 2,5 eur per person, so 10 eur for couverture for a family of four, for nothing, not even crackers (we asked for some bread with...the meal), is too much.More

During our day trip to the Burano island (Venice) we were attracted to this restaurant by the ´looks ´, well apointed tables white table cloths, a friendly team including the owner, other family members and staff. Diletta, the owners daughter made excellent recommendations regarding the...food choices. This lunch was truly at one of our best restaurant during our recent stay in Venice. Well worth a visit. Reservation highly recommended.More

Great food and service but the specials are outrageously priced. We had a delicious meal with my wife getting the squid and I ordered the local fish specials. The regular fish was €20 (about $24) which wasn’t bad but we had ordered the specials and...didn’t realize to ask the price. The service was great and it’s run by a local family. The deserts were very good with the Tiramisu that was great. You can also order a tasting of deserts which isn’t on the menu. We went with the Tiramisu and Marscapone with local cookies desert. Both were good, and worth a try although the Tiramisu was the best. There is a cover charge and the water was €4 but the bill really put a damper to a great meal as the specials were €30 each (about $40) so a total of about $106 for lunch. Other than the specials price, it’s a five star meal.More

Far from good. Overpriced. Calamari were not fresh and the portions were small. I’ve had better canned calamari. Drinks are very expensive and service isn’t good. To top it off, they wouldn’t take my credit card even though I had spent over 20 euros.

Paolo and his family have a great place, with great food, Had home made pasta and my wife enjoyed a mix of grilled fish and a nice wine. His three daughters work as wait staff and they are terrific. Ornella, his wife works inside and...controls things while Paolo entertains and takes care of the customers. Great place on Burano and well worth a visit.More

We were recommended to visit this restaurant whilst planing our trip to burano, and what a jolly good recommendation it was too. On a long street, and with tables outside to dine whilst taking in the art of people watching, we were delighted to be...made very welcome and looked after by a lovely team of genuine people who really appreciated your custom, and made sure that nothing was too much trouble. The pasta is extra special, so to us the fish, again, I would say, that here is a place that knows how to care about the time you spend in the capable hands, making the whole experience one to remember, and indeed look forward to doing again, I will, we will, and I hope soon. Enjoy.More
