The service was great and so was our food. Thomas Lovell Beddoes This was our second visit to Larisa and Vergilio’s wonderful restaurant. Despite being late (my fault) Larisa got us sorted quickly but be aware, this restaurant has limited seating and is very popular so we were lucky (don’t get lost on the way!). The characteristic is fresh produce, a deceptively simple menu, beautifully cooked and complemented by a good wine… Maxwell Anderson This is my first review because the food was so amazingly good we actually offered to take the chef with us to Dubai! You have to try this restaurant! It’s mouthwatering. Michael Leunig The food was excellent and the service was the best we’ve experienced in Venice so far. We’ll definitely come back to try out more of the dishes! Anonymous Started off with the Mixed Seafood Sampler (Venetian Style). Foe our main dish we ordered the Vermicelli with Cuttle Fish Ink Sauce over Polenta and Tuscan Roast Lamb Chops. Everything was delicious. Ralph Block Visited this Osteria on our first night in Venice, it was quite close to the flat we rented. Didn’t have a reservation, but we showed up right at 18:30 opening and were able to get a table for 2, though parties arriving later without a reservation were turned away. Setting was cozy, food was delicious, George Sands We only discovered this fabulous authentic restaurant, new the Rialto Bridge, on our last night but it was a perfect way to remember the great hospitality wonderful simple food and excellent service and welcome. Socrates Tucked away down a little lane, it is not easy to find, but worth a serious try! The food is outstanding: I started with a raw fish platter, totally fresh and delicious. Ellie Goulding We were staying in Venice for a week and did some research on a local restaurant near our apartment. What a find this was. Jane Seymour The meal we had at Antico Giardinetto was perfect in almost every way. It’s nestled in a little alley way off the beat path. Gary Jones Having had a rather rough first day in Venice due to an unexpectedly unpleasant hotel we searched carefully for a nice dinner to salvage our start to the holiday. This place was little, tucked away from the crowds and the food was delicious! And very prompt and kind service. Jane Seymour Delicious food, nice atmosphere and both friendly and competent service – just perfect. We will definitely come back. Groucho Marx We are here on our last night in Venice. We had heard that the places on the other side of the cancel were slightly more local. The food was great. I had the best tiramisu that I have ever had. The pasta, fish and vegetables were great as well. Highly recommend! Mary Jones Pre booked for dinner here with friends on our wedding anniversary trip to Venice. Came well recommended and lived up to its ratings. Great service from owner. JR We really enjoyed this place and had a great dinner here. Its a small restaurant with a nice courtyard in front and is run by a husband and wife team with the wife serving and the husband doing the cooking. Ellie Goulding Very fresh and well prepared food. This is an honest husband-wife team that is very friendly and puts their heart into the food. It is very small, recommend that you reserve in advance. They speak English very well and also had a menu in German. Jennifer Dropped in to this restaurant on our last night looking for something a bit different from the usual tourist fare. We were lucky to get a table as many were already booked. The food and front of house service was superb. Sarah Brown The restaurant is a charming place to relax and savour delicious meals especially the seafood. Service was impeccable , best in Italy we had so far – we could not fault anything.
