The good things were it got us out of the rain, the view from the front is great and unlike some we found the staff attentive although it was a rainy day at the end of November and they werent rushed off their feet. The food however was not good. Pizza lacked any flavour as did everything else. Drinks were... More

The service was really bad, the prices were too high (13 euros for a table and the service for TWO persons!) - we payed 100 euros for a small portion of pasta and 100 grams of fried shellfish. The waiter spilled our wine over our table and didn't offer us a new bottle - the only fast thing about our... More

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...
