My husband and I visited this Ristorante in mid-March when we were with our tour group traveling with Gate 1 Travel in Venice. We had been to Murano to see the glass factory then came over to visit St. Mark's Square, the Bridge of Sighs and the Doges' Palace. We were having a lunch break and came upon this Ristorante...

Nice little place to stop... We had lunch here two days. The only thing I would say is that the drinks are expensive! I paid €6.50 for a can of coke!!! However the food we had here was lovely and reasonably priced! Just mind the pigeons, they like to walk around you feet why you eat. This didn't bother me... More

We visited this restaurant twice, during the day for drinks and a seat. The first time was sunny and we were able to sit outside and watch all the activity along the Grand Canal, the staff were friendly, efficient and unlike many other places actually had a sense of personality! The second time we stopped for drinks we sat outside... More

Ristorante Principessa is the restaurant located in Hotel Savoia and Jolanda. It serves breakfast not only for residents of that hotel but also of its sister hotel Villa Igea located about 100 yards away through the sortoportego opposite the San Zaccaria church. With two stays at Villa Igea during 2013 for the Art Biennale, I have experienced 12 breakfasts this... More

We chose this hotel after a walk along the waterfront as it looked quite nice from the outside. After reading the menu board outside, they stated they had lasagne (which I was in the mood for), but when we sat down and were given another menu, it was not available, and when I asked he said they didn't do it,...

This is a good restaurant. Not great, but good. Yes the prices are a little high, but come on; it is a block away from the plaza with a terrific view of the lagoon - what can you expect. Service is a good as any where in Venice, a very competitive environment. Enizo, our head waiter, represents the very best... More

Stayed at the hotel, so had breakfast here each morning. Range for breakfast was average, with only one hot choice, unless you boil your own egg. Staff we either attentive or disinterested, and often looked away if you wanted something. Had dinner twice. First time was on arrival, and we were tired...ended up paying €130. The second night the resto... More

The food was horrible. We really expected more in Venice. The service was even worse. They charge a cover charge and add an automatic gratuity. Guess there's no incentive to give good service or have decent food. Walk on past this place.
