If the weather’s fine you’ll spot this restaurant easily as it spreads its tables over the charming small square.

It’s a must on every visit we make to Venice, if only for the spaghetti aglio, olio peperoncino. Other reasons include olive ascolane (huge, stuffed green olives fried in breadcrumbs) andsalame piccante as antipasti, veal escalope in a fresh lemon sauce and excellent vegetables – especially cipolline in agrodolce and carciofi della casa.

Their pizzas also have a very good reputation. Service is friendly and efficient, credit cards are accepted and it’s very inexpensive.
