Very expensive and not so good

Besides beeing expensive they show decals of Visa and Amex on their Windows but when you try to pay with a card they tell you a long story that the card reader is working wrong and you have to pay with cash. The waiters are not gentle. A bottle of wáter is 15 E and they also charge a fee... read more

We did not have the same experience as the other reviews mentioned. Service was fine. My experience in larger cities is you're not going to get a warm and fuzzy waiter. However we thought he did fine job. We had the dried meat appetizer which all enjoyed. I had the pasta alla Carbonara for lunch which was very good. Son... More

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 enough and then completely ignored... 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.
