Good food, good service, nice bar area with a variety of cichetti that seemed popular with locals.

Directions: Just off Campo Santo Stefano, on the calle across from the church. Directions on web site.

We ate two lunches and one dinner here. The food was quite good as was the service. It is a fairly small place so reservations would be a good idea. There is an adjoining bar area to the restaurant which had seats and served a variety of cichetti, many of which was fried as well as other appetizers.

Our lunches were: Insalata mista and prosciutto e melone, tagliolini con astice e pomodoro and lasagna, water, two glasses of wine. Total 77. Insalata mista and prosciutto e melone, spaghetti con vongole, cozze e pomodoro and lasagna, water, two glasses wine. Total 73.

Dinner was: Prosciutto e melone and mezzaluna (spinach & ricotta), Spaghetti al vongole and a mixed fried seafood platter, water, wine (44) and 2 limoncellos. Total 144.

An enjoyable dinner.

Directions: From the Accademia bridge, cross over to the San Marco side and walk straight to Campo Santo Stefano; at the north west corner of the campo, turn left onto Calle delle Botteghe

I made early dinner reservations for Trattoria da Fiore, as I was going to an evening concert. Dinner was excellent: Caprese - cherry tomatoes and buffalo mozzarella with basil and olive oil. I have to say it was the best mozzarella I've ever had. It was so creamy with a melt-in-your-mouth texture. The portion was large too. Next I had the lasagna Bolognese, which was very good, although the lasagna I had in Bologna was 'the' best. With liter of white house wine, the bill came to 42 euros.

Not the famous Osteria Da Fiore in San Polo, but one of my favorites.

We shared a seafood antipasti, spaghetti al forno con gamberi (baked with prawns), water, and a liter of the house red wine. 80 euros.

On a Feb. 2004 trip to Venice, I stayed in a nearby apartment. We stumbled onto Trattoria da Fiore for our first lunch in Venice and were amazed! Get there early and have the veggie antipasto. At lunchtime, the veggies were still warm from the grill and wonderful. We went back two more times for dinner and had great meals. Zuppa di pesce is great! Highly recommended. Nice wine list.

On my most recent visit, I was happy to see that they're still good.

Overpriced and overcooked food.

Directions: Off Campo San Stefano (map on website)

Was the worst meal we had in Venice by far as well as the most expensive and overpriced.

We had two vegetable antipasti; everything on it was overcooked, mushy and flavorless. As an entree we had what was supposed to be raddichio lasagna. I would be hard pressed to tell you what was actually in it, the lasagna was grey in color and had no taste, it had obviously been sitting somewhere until someone came along looking for a vegetarian entree.

Service was disinterested, food was awful and prices were inflated.
