Microwave food quality. Tasteless, soft, rubber like pizza. Slow service, not very polite. Cannot recommend in any way.

The food was ok, with a decent tourist meal offer of a primi pasta with secondi for €18. Most waiters don't speak much english though, so be prepared for some confusion.

Recently visited Venice and chose to have dinner at the Ristorante Principessa. They were not overly busy but we were seated outside with a reasonable view of the canal and general street life. We found the service to be somewhat slow and a couple of the waiters actually appeared as though they could be doing better things with there time.... More

Hotel is wonderful. This restaurant has mediocre food, poor service and a serious pigeon problem- they land on your table! The plus here? The location and view.

My husband and I visited this hotel restaurant (in the Savoia & Jolanda Hotel) on our last trip to Venice. All the locals said not to eat at the places on the waterfront or on Piazza San Marco, but we are glad we stopped in here. The reason we did this was it one of the very few places that... More

We wanted something more than a cone and we wanted a seat. On passing this smart restaurant just along from St Mark's Square, we spotted pictures of ice cream sundaes on the menu board. So in we went and we were not disappointed! We had a nice table on the covered terrace, the service was good and the ice cream... More

Had lunch here with my wife. Nice food but nothing to special. Very expensive. No sides come with the main dishes. You have to order separately. That's where the get you. Nice spot though.

We ate here several times because it offers the broadest menu in the area and the setting is great for watching all the traffic on the Riva delgi Schivoni. We looked at every menu in the surrounding area and Principessa was consistently attractive. The price premium for dinner on the Riva is modest. The portions are substantial and we typically... More

Food was awful and expensive. Rude waiters. Wanted to send back the shrimp cocktail as it was just soaked in mayonnaise and he was quite rude about it and pretty much just said too bad for you.
