    The pizzas (carmelized fennel). The charcuterie and cheese (figs with burrata and prosciutto). The small seasonal plates of heavenly goodness... It's a little loud and gets busy, so make a reservation, go with friends, drink some wine, share a bunch of stuff, and add to the din. There's no signage out front or valet parking umbrella to look for, so mind the address, grab a meter and enjoy!

    Plush, sexy and irresistible atmosphere without the uptight snobbery! The food is dynamic and market fresh. They give a knock out brunch, so try it if you’re in Venice! -Robin Leventhal, Top Chef

    A neighborhoody spot that's filled with regulars, pick from seasonalsmall plate offerings and some skinny-crusted brick oven pizzas. The roasted vegetables are also a must-try.

    Let's face it - this place is sexy. And the food remains stellar at brunch, lunch, and dinner. Get the fried egg sandwich or the pizza w/ guanciale and green olives or the insane butterscotch pudding.

    Everything is good except the cloth napkins, which leave white lint everywhere. Leave black pants at home.
