I arrived in Venice with my family and we decided to go for lunch in this restaurant overlooking the grand canal. I ordered the most Italian dish I could think of - spaghetti carbonara expecting the real thing, something delicious. I was served a plate which I can only describe as orange muck (spaghetti in burger cheese ) with some... More

Their Pizza reminded me of my Elementary school cafeteria "pizza." Oh, and it's expensive too! They charge you for tip in advance, so watch out not to tip them Twice.

We tried this place since it was convenient to the hotel. Even with the hotel discount, it was overpriced and the worst meal I've had in Italy. I'll have to agree with one of the other reviewers that Olive Garden is a big improvement over this place.

It was a mistake stopping here for lunch. Had the bolognese which was bland, and only a small portion. Drinks were expensive. This was the worst meall we had in 5 days in Venice.

Pricey, ordinary food and bad service. Ordered spritzers and a prosecco for my wife. Spritzers arrived but no prosecco. Took great effort to get waiters' attention, asked 4 times and it was finally delivered with our food. Head waiter had lots of bon homie but no follow through. Food over priced and totally un memorable. Much better food at Osteria... More

As many other reviewers mentioned, we were tired and hungry and had to meet a friend at San Marco, so we decided to eat in this restaurant. I ordered the spaghetti carbonara because I had had it in Rome and it was fabulous. Here....inedible. It was a bright yellow color (where did that come from?) and tasted horrible. I couldn't... More

We are very tired (only reason so we drop by when we get off the waterbus) which turned out to be bad decision. Worst coffee and tiramisu but charge us euro 60 for 4 (only one tiramisu and four drinks) most importantly is the bad quality of coffee and tiramisu. Avoid!

We went here for a very important meal on my birthday. The starters (a fish platter) were very attractive but tasteless. They then forgot all about us, and over an hour after our plates had been cleared from the starter, one of the waiters told us our main meal was a long time because the chef couldn't get meat and...
