I have eaten there ..... in winter (no flooding on that occasion). The food was superb and the 'patio heater' beside us kept us very toasty.

This was taken as we left to head back to the hotel.

That's a nice photo on your link. Venice in the evening and at night is vastly different to daytime.

I've had a pleasant enough simple meal at Il Diavolo e l'Acqua Santa in the nearby Calle della Madonna. It's a bit of a spit and sawdust place and it's a pleasant surprise to find so close to the Rialto. It doesn't boast a spectacular view but it has simple, honest fare at a reasonable price, probably like some of the places you've been to.

Also, very close to both restaurants is the church of San Giovanni Elemosinario. Blink and you'll miss it as you are propelled along with the crowds making their way from the Rialto bridge towards San Polo. It's no great shakes compared to some other churches, but it is a pleasant tiny surprise after imposing churches like the Frari. We discovered it when we bought a year long Chorus pass as we knew we would be in Venice twice that year.

Probably the most authentic meal we had was in a place that that had about 5 tables and the menu choice was 'Take it or leave it'. I am sure it came down to what the family were eating.
There was an American couple came in and complained that there wasn't enough choice. The proprietrix (who might have been 5' tall in high heels and spoke no English) went ballistic and physically threw them out. It was wonderful (as was the food).

Your image has generated some great comments and can see why you all love Venice.

Can feel the damp chill in both images Tim.
