This was our favorite meal in Venice. It’s very small - perhaps room for 2 dozen diners. The menu is not as extensive as other restaurants that seem to cater to tourists. But there were a variety of options to choose from. Mostly regional cuisine...More

We were happy to slide into the last table for the 7PM seating. Sam and the crew did a great job out front, helping us with wine recomendations, and food selection. The chef filled in the rest of the evening, the food was excellent, great...More

Small restaurant with a very good service: professional and polite. The food is good, but positions are really small. I suggest to be a little more generous with portions also considering prices applied and the really basic and tiny environment. Appetisers 18 euro (2 bites),...More

First rate. This was one of the top two restaurants we visited in Venice. The food was excellent as was the service.

Santa Croce
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district)
when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring
cars and buses close to the center of Venice.
Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking
Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes
with energy from travelers and students. Historic
palaces and former industrial buildings house some
departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture

No. It's relatively casual. No shorts and flip flops but anything else is okay. Cozy small place with a very small menu.
