Great food, friendly staff, loved it, highly recommend this restaurant if you are in Venice.
One lovely surprise in Venizia, the food was amazing !
Materia prima di qualità ottima, tempo di servizio molto buono, ottimo rapporto qualità-prezzo. Trattoria attrezzata con prodotti gluten-free. Andate e mangiate!
La atencion fue de primera clase. La comida tambien. Quedamos muy conformes con la relacion precio/calidad.
We had an early supper at Trattoria al Gazzettino..just after the restaurant opened at 6:00 PM. We visited because my wife is Celiac and had discovered they offer many gluten free options. The pasta was lovely and their house wine was perfect after "opening up" a few minutes. The gluten free pasta bolognese that my wife had was served al dente and delicious. The service was warm and friendly...not always found in Venice, with the right amount of attention. We were treated to some unexpected extras by the chef and the host which was an extraordinary touch. My wife had a grilled squid appetizer which was also yummy. As we did not have a secondi course we cannot comment but other diners seemed very happy with their plates! We would absolutely recommend this restaurant and would revisit if our travels take us back to Venice.
It was our 1st time in Venice, we were looking for Restaurants with good service and reviews. We are really demanding when it comes to food and service but let me tell you that this place is Top Notch. The place was packed with locals and tourist that didn't stop them for making a memorial night for all os us , we were lucky enough to have our server named "Guido" he went above and beyond. it was genuine not staged or faked and he did it with all 3 tables that were next to us. He also gave us free shots of local drinks for starters, free deserts and free Grappa shots, the family next to us asked him " What's going on?" Meaning that neither they or the rest of us would find that kind of service or attentiveness in the USA. We did tip him but he wasn't expecting a tip, if you ever find yourselves in Venice this place is a must. The food was delicious and the service was excellent, the prices were incredible low compare to the USA, we ordered a 3 course meal with a bottle of Prosecco and it was less than expected. The Restaurant is really clean and I can't stress enough about the great great service. I'd rate this place a 10 Plus. Thank you Guido for making our evening an amazing experience, we'll be back next year. All the best!
Fantastic little place - full of character and as hectic and lively as so many of these tiny Venetian restaurants. Our various spaghetti dishes (carbonara, truffle and clam) were all fresh and delicious and the Rose was superb. If you haven't booked, as we hadn't on our first visit, be prepared to 'queue' (to us Brits) outside or crowd around the entrance to the Italians, in the tiniest of streets! That said, they hand out wine and pasta while you wait, which is a lovely touch, and they forget nobody who is waiting outside. They simply do not want you to leave and will cram you in even after 9:30 in the evening. Don't be surprised if you are shepherded through the main restaurant and straight back outside to another side street that leads to their overflow restaurant - this one feels just like you are sitting in Mamma's kitchen, complete with a small serving area and wooden tables & chairs overlooking a canal. Here, the waiters and waitresses receive the food from next door! We ate in both areas and both were Irresistibly charming and authentic - a real treat.
We had a pretty long walk in Venice to reach this restaurant. It was hot and we were running late so walked at brisk pace. Then restaurant had poor air conditioning. But we were 20 minutes late and yet our reservation table for 6 was still held despite there being a line out back. Food was really excellent. Owner personally took interest that we tasted all his best dishes. Some of the extras were free like aperitif and dessert plate and some we paid like extra appetizers and upgraded wine. But overall it was a very good experience. Staff was very engaging and we knew all their names and that the owners wife is the dessert chef. They handed out Trip Advisor cards at end of meal and asked us to review our experience. It was a funny coincidence that we discovered that 3 tables (including ours) in this small restaurant were all from NJ dining in Venice. The power of the on line travel resources was obvious as this place ranked #2 seafood restaurant in Venice.
Its a busy place . We arrived and had a free " sangria" while waiting a few minutes for our table. Good menu choices, Food come thick and fast. All very nice although not outstanding. We had a sharing plate of cold meats to kick off then 4 mains of veal with polenta, sea bream , spaghetti and a steak. All fine. We ordered desserts and were then given" complimentary" glasses of grappa and a piece of chocolate cake . All fine as were the real desserts and coffee. The bill came to 190 Euros ( including service )and it just seemed a lot really . I was also unsure whether in the end I had actually paid for the grappa and cake ? There is nothing at all wrong with this place and I quite enjoyed it but I think you have to watch what you are ordering as the bill can mount up . House Wine was 26 Euros a bottle - not sure there was a cheaper option .
We were treated with very warm and attentive service. We are a family of 4, with two teenage children. We really enjoyed our meals, and our teens say that it was their favorite restaurant in Venice. They had a pasta, their favorite food! One of us has a gluten sensitivity(adult), and so had the gluten-free pasta, which was very good. One of the adults had the curry, and a seafood soup, and was very pleased with both. I wish we would have come to this restaurant sooner, so we could return during this trip. We will likely return, as we will be back to visit Venice regularly(family live in area). We recommend this place!
