Very good value. Excellent food and friendly service.

Directions: A little tricky to find: Exit Piazza San Marco by the Mercerie d'Orologico, follow it as it turns into Calle dei Pignoi, and then you are on the Bareterri bridge. Stand on the Ponte Bareterri - Splendid Suisse Hotel is on your right, Sempione will be on your left.

We really loved this place. It's a great value.

Go after 8:30pm when the tourists thin out and it will be a less hectic experience. Really excellent food, friendly service, casual dress, waiters and the menu speak many languages. Décor isn't much, but don't let that put you off when you walk in. About {the equivalent of} $70 last time for full meal for two with coffee and house wine; we could have spent less.

I had the Venetian specialties of sardines in saor and calf's liver, but there are many other choices. Good desserts. Takes credit cards, reservations essential. Call ahead during winter; may be closed December-January.
