I apologize maybe it has been a misunderstanding, the owner was disappointed with his employees and certainly not with the guests who are always treated with the utmost courtesy. Unfortunately that night we lacked a staff member and we apologize again for the wait that it is not absolutely normal. If you decide to visit us again we will be... More

What a great concept, an old traditional building from the outside but ultra modern on the inside.. The food and service were also outstanding.. Ooh and I nearly forgot the great selection of Italian beers. Well worth a visit!

The dining room is divided just with some planters between the very small bar area but it sort of works, it is... More

Cool, modern restaurant with delicious food and friendly service. Try the tasteful chateaubriand with amarone sauce - yummie! Good prices and location. Our favourite place in Venice!

We visited the place for drinks since had already eaten on the day. We ordered some desserts which were great (the best we had for while). The menu looks promising and we will be back for a full meal next time we are in Venice. Atmosphere is great and staff was extreme friendly. Regarding pricing in Venice: We ordered wine... More

Others have found the food here excellent, I have to say. It depends what you are comparing it with, I suppose. This meal came between Riviera and and the Ristorante alle Corone (in the Hotel Ai Reali). By those standards the food here was reasonable but not more and it is quite expensive. The high tech menus and ordering system... More

We booked this place based on Trip Advisor reviews which I must say did not let us down!! A very different dining experience, modern Venetian with a really contemporary twist. The Beef Tenderloin was to die for followed by wild strawberry Mille Feuille.... absolutely out of this world! A definite must for you foodies out there!

Quite difficult to find this place if you're no familiar with its location. The restaurant has modern decor, the dishes are well presented and tasteful. Good music was playing throughout the dining experience.
