There Are Better and They Don't All Rip you Off..This One Does!

We came across this place while wandering around Venice. The setting is nice and it is quite appealing from the front and we were hungry. The first problem is the rude waiters! To be honest we found most waiters in Venice to be rather rude...but this lot took the cake. Couldn't get the order quick... read more

I wouldn't go here for dinner but if you're looking for a reasonable cheap lunch then this will fit the bill. My wife had the seafood pizza, which I also tried. It was tasty, a wee bit salty, and a good size. My lasagne was not as good as what I can make myself at home but if you're busy... More

We came to this place in our first night in Venice, because it was recommended by some trip magazine and our hotel was quite close. Of course the brand has nothing to do with the Dutch or with Richard Wagner, it is very much an Italian or rather a Veneto restaurant. The restaurant is situated in a quite large square... More

Not much to say except that you should avoid it like the pest! Absolutely disgusting meal and rude waiter!

A day of heavy rain in late July. Storm, then persistent showers. We had planned on a number of options through trip advisor, but the rain stymied that and we plumped for what looked like from the outside a suitable restaurant. Wrong. Not enticing menu, uninspiring waiter. Nothing much else to say, best to move on and look forward to... More

Stumbled over this because of the tables in the courtyard. Apart from 2€ cover charge each the beer and food were OK. Waiter was most grumpy we met in Italy but was efficient enough. Didn't see the Flying Dutchman though!

After trying to find a good restaurant in Venice we stumbled upon this "gem". When we sat down the waiter was fairly rude and after we placed our orders for food we did not see him until he brought the check. The meal itself was not very good at all. I had the gnocchi (which had 20 pieces of gnocchi... More

We went here for dinner; we enjoyed it - the food,service and atmosphere were all good but we were looking for a locals place of the tourist routes. Would recommend it if you are comfortable with what I described.

Went here for lunch twice. My wife has penne arrabiata everywhere that we travel, and rated this as being the second best she has had.... All of the pasta dishes seemed good, don't think I would have the pizza. The chips were nice, all of the food arrived hot, with good service. I see this as a place for lunch,... More

Not just the worst meal I've ever had in Italy but up there as possibly the worst meal I've had ever. My girlfriend and I had the 'lasagne' but I wouldn't dare class this as lasagne. I've had Asda, Sainsbury and Tesco value lasagne and all were delicious when compared with this monstrosity. The closest thing I can compare it... More
