Staff was attentive and we had a very nice lunch on our day of arrival. Canopy protects from the sun and heat and you can people watch as you eat your lunch.

I wish I could give this place a zero. Where to start? The location was pretty nice, which is what lured us in. But everything went downhill from there. The food was not very good if it had been cheap. But considering the prices they charge, it was horrible. But the service was truly inexcusable. Our waiter was rude, inattentive... More

Ordered an omelet from the menu but was told too late, time 6.30pm. Head waiter said he would give us a few moments to re-select. Ordered drinks which took 10 minutes. If it wasn't for the wife I would have got up and left. After 20 minutes decided to ask for the bill. Head waiter returned with bill and wanted... More

After 3 hours trip by train from Milano to Venice, and from St. Lucia railway station to Saint Marco pierce by ferry (30 minutes) we were quite hungry and choose first restaurant we saw. From this point of view restaurant's location is good But...... Service quality, service speed, and food quality MUST be changed to the better side. Waiters are... More

We stayed at the adjacent hotel and were told we could have 20% if we ate at their restaurant. It was our last night of a long trip and thought we would do that and we wanted a pizza as Italy and venice make excellent pizzas. Well, the pizzas were awful. The dough wasn't cooked properly and they were tasteless.... More

We went for 4 days to Venice and we ate a lot at restaurants. Ristorante Principessa was one of them. The waiters were too kind, so that was the first that I didn't like. Second of all, I ordered a lasagna and what I got was a really small portion for a kid from 10 years old. I was really... More

We have been here twice during our trip. But unfortunately not too eat. Just drinks in the evening. The sights are beautiful. The water and the people walking by. You feel like stepping outside the busy city and observing them from a distance. Lovely waiters and good wine!

Never in my life have I ever visited a restaurant as bad as this. The service was terrible, the staff were rude and the food was unedible. There was six of us and only two out of six ate more than one spoonful of the meal. My boyfriend and I ordered carbonara which came in about 30 minutes and was... More

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.
