A very small place that attracts lots of tourists but you also here Italian spoken by guests. Usually lunch is not as crowded whereas reservations are a must for dinner, but during this prime season, reservations were also needed for lunch and many were turned away at the door. Service is good and they are most helpful in selecting a wine to go with your order. We’ve eaten here many times and this visit was a little
hit and miss but take it with a large grain of jet lag. The razor clams are so very tasty but today a number of them were gritty which distracted from them. The spaghetti with clams was very tasty. The clams are among the smallest you will find but they pack a wonderful sweet taste. The pumpkin ravioli was quite good but fish was a tad dull on its own, however when you ate them together it was a nice combo. The artichokes were excellent and nicely prepared. I could have eaten a plate of them myself. The turbot with mashed potatoes was a bit overcooked but nicely fresh. This sauce was not the usual herb sauce and I don’t think it came off as well. The prawns were well cooked but messy. A very tasty sauce here but the ginger was a bit hot, however I am a ginger lover. The porcini cake was like the crisp rice you find at the bottom of the pan you cook it in, with a wonderful strong mushroom taste – a winner. Finish with one of their huge selection of grappa and you have a nice start to your trip to Venice.
