 Hostaria del Piccolo - Venice
Hostaria del Piccolo - Venice
We propose a different approach to Italian food, by creating dishes moderate in portion size, which we feel enhances the dining experience, by allowing you more variety in taste, while eating healthier.

"We have eaten here many times, which proves we like it and value it in our neighborhood. Last night, though, I am positive the "Frittura" (fried calamari and shrimp) was about half the size of the portion we last had (not too many weeks ago). It used to be enough for two to share as a first course, but last night we had to order another portion. The asparagus and crab soup was delicious, but had four tiny scraps of crab in it. The steak was very expensive and had only arugula as an accompaniment and the wine reduction sauce was practically non-existent. I don't know if this enterprise is struggling (they no longer open for lunch here, and they had to close their huge, fancy "Ciboteca" take out place in Santa Monica). If so, the solution is not to short-change regular customers. The server we had was a little less gracious and friendly than the usual Italian ones."
