Take Advantage of the Wonderful Set Price Meal

Directions: Riva dei Schiavoni toward Castello, left on Pescheria, restaurant on left.

I've been wanting to go here since I saw it highlighted on the Travel Channel, and it did not disappoint. Owner Diane (from Texas) sat us for lunch and made us feel very welcome. We opted for the 44 euro lunch which included certain choices from the primi and secondi lists, as well as dessert. Another option is the 58 euro lunch or dinner in which the entire menu is available (with a few additions for premium items). You can order a la carte but the 9 euro cover charge is charged if you do that.

Our seafood gnocchi and spaghetti with pomodoro primi were wonderful, and I coveted my husband's grilled bay scallops the second I saw them. My grilled tuna and eggplant was good but nowhere near as good as his scallops! They were served in the shell with butter and olive oil and were simply sublime. Parts of the tuna were overdone but it was still tasty. Our desserts were excellent as well. The ambiance was wonderful for our leisurely two hour lunch.

With a bottle of wine and a bottle of water, our bill for three was 159 euros. We will be back!
