What people say

"Ok, I already know what you're thinking. Why would I go to a steakhouse in Italy...but hear me out. Nearly a 30 minute walk from St. Mark's Square, this is a restaurant that you would only find if you were specifically looking for it, and I'm glad I was! I was so determined to eat here that I didn't let the swarm of 15-20 locals standing outside the restaurant or the 1+ hour wait deter me from my dinner plans, and I would recommend that everyone do the same if necessary! This was one of the best steaks I've ever had in my entire life, and the sides that came with the platter added a nice touch. From what I gathered, you will need at least 2 people to be able to order one of these, so if you're solo traveling maybe do some more research before taking my advice. "
" Venetian cicchetti are something unique. Cicchetti are a staple of Venetian way of life, and every traveler in Venice should have the experience of living like a local!  Cicchetti come in many different shapes and flavors. Plates of olive and fried seafood are both common cicchetti. Other examples of these Venetian-style tapas include: Sarde in saor — Sardines that have been friend and then marinated. Polpette – Meatballs made with meat or baccalà (codfish). Mozzarella in carrozza – A fried sandwich filled with mozzarella and anchovies. Bruschetta – Slices of bread topped with every kind of fish, charcuterie, or cheese you can think of."
