No frills pasta and pizza since 1962, where the simplest dishes are the best. Clam spaghetti, stuffed full of juicy, fresh clams, crispy thin pepperoni pizza, the classic Venetian spaghetti with squid ink sauce, or pasta with onions and anchovies rich with the flavors of the ocean. It’s a little shabby and very small (just five tables inside two dining rooms, on either side of the street, and some communal bench tables outdoors), but this is extremely good value for central Venice. Tasty red ales on tap, too (6€).
