Before going to Venice, I had found this restaurant by looking for somewhere interesting near to our hotel as we didn't want to stray too far for the first night. Once there we had a walk round to check out some other options and then I approached their 'salesman' standing outside and asked him a few further questions including checking... More

We enjoyed 2 meals at this resturant due to its great setting by the Grand Canal, and also due to the friendly , attentive unrushed service we received.

We came through to be seated right on the grand canal surrounded by flowers and fairy lights which just added to the lovely view. Food was beaut and wine £14 euros... More

Having trudged around Venice looking for an authentic Italian restaurant with an affordable menu and a good view, we came across Povoledo. The entrance is rather anonymous and belies what sits beyond. After being led to the rear terrace, overlooking the Grand Canal, we we quickly seated at an enviable table by the canal side, affording incredible views. We ordered... More

Our initial reaction was "too close to the station" so we walked past this restaurant a few times but on our last day in 2013 we wanted something close to the station for a last minute snack. What a find. If you want a relaxed evening with a great view, delicious food, without snotty waiters then I would recommend this... More

We wandered around and thought we should just get a pizza and sit by the canal for atmosphere rather than pay the service charges and prices for medium food offerings in this area. Then we saw that we could sit on a balcony on the canal and not pay service charges! My son accidentally ordered a dish that was way... More

If you are looking for a simple and romantic place to eat this is the right one! We sat outside at the terrace with a beautiful View of the canal, enjoyable weather too. The service was very good, though the place was packed at some point our meal came at a reasonable timing. The food was really good!! We went... More

We had a lovely seat on the water side (grand canal). The food and waiters were very nice and enjoyable. Would love to go back here. This is far better than its next door neighbour (ristorante Roma)

There was nothing specifically wrong with this restaurant which provides some outside seating directly on the Grand Canal, however, the food was very ordinary to say the least and clearly the staff do not listen. We sat next to am American couple who had specific food requirements and made it very clear how they wanted their food served and in... More
