Small Venice restaurant behind the Danieli

A friend just returned from two weeks in Venice. Her favorite place was a small restaurant where
the owner was also the chef and also the waiter! Just behind the Danieli, it was their favorite
discovery in Venice. But she doesn't know the name of it. Help!

Also what's the name of the Venice restaurant owned by a Texas woman?

    I think this is the "Ristorante Il Ridotto" of Giani Bonnacorsi !

      I'm thinking I've been there, too. Any idea how long it's been open?

      I can't answer the first question, but the second is definitely Al Covo, owned by Diane Rankin, who is from Texas, and her Venetian husband, Cesare Benelli.
