Great Seafood Meal for a Fair Price

Directions: Calle della Pieta to Salizada dei Greci, turn left.

Three of us shared an appetizer, each had pasta for a primo, and then each had grilled seafood for a secondo, with a bottle of house wine and dessert, and the bill was a very reasonable 144 euros. The grilled monkfish and orata were absolutely delicious and the price (about 20 euros per plate) was very good. I strongly recommend this restaurant. However, pay attention to one thing: The man cleaning shellfish, cutting cheese, making cocktails and coffee, and scooping out berries for dessert with his hands NEVER changed the blue gloves he was wearing! We will always wonder why those berries didn't taste like fish!

If only we had stopped with the gnocchi, we would have been happier. We felt rushed, like the waiters were interested in getting us out as fast as possible.

Directions: On Calle Bosello near Scuola San Giorgio dei Greci, Castello/Riva Degli Schiavoni

It's a terrible thing to be eating an okay meal and everytime you look out the window, you see another restaurant - a restaurant you should have gone to - where everyone who's eating looks happy.

Da Remigio was recommended to us by a shopkeeper, so we thought it would be good. Instead, it was just okay. The English-speaking waiter took the wine list away and insisted that we could only order by the glass. The wine, a San Felice chianti, was okay, so I didn't complain (silly waiter, he would have made more money if he'd let me order the wine I had in mind).

We shared a plate of proscuitto, which was just okay. Then we shared gnocchi with seafood, which was very good. The gnocchi were very light and the sauce tasty. Then we shared pasta with clams and mussels and were very disappointed. Suspiciously, the shellfish wasn't in the shell, but mixed into the sauce. I'm not sure if it was fresh or frozen.

Service was brusque and uninterested. I wish we had gone to Oliva Nera, which is right next door.

Wonderful food, specializing in seafood. Attentive service. Ate here three nights!

We were a party of 2. The average price per meal was 80-90Ä. This included antipasti, primi, secondi, contorni, bottle of prosecco, vin santo and espresso.

The menu is quite varied and everything we tried was good. The service was excellent. The restaurant itself (we were in the second, or back, room) was lovely and quiet. If dining with the locals is important to you this is the place.

One of the things we enjoy about eating out in Italy is the pace of the meal, the fact that a table is reserved for you and you know it's yours for the night. This place met that requirement.

We enjoyed the food so much we decided to eat there again for dinner.

It is unfortunate that we learned about this place the last day of our stay, 1) because it was great, and 2) because it was approximately 20 feet from where we were staying. I have no idea why we didnít try it before. For some reason we had written it off. We enjoyed the food so much we decided to eat there again for dinner.
