They dont understand when you talk in english or even in italian, most of the staff arent italian and they are rude and lie to you. The price is quite expensive comparing with other and with what they serve. Terrible

Don't go to this place! The waiters are rude and not interested in what you want to eat, they insist only on expensive meals and refused our order just because our son didn't want to eat anything. They do not deserve even one star!

Food here is below average, servers are surley and will lie to you in order to get additional tips which are already included with the overly inflated bill you will receive. If you go here becuase you must sit canalside do so for the view and enjoy it because that is the best thing about this place

On our penultimate evening we decided to choose somewhere nice for a meal, and because of the location came here. The service we received wasn't particularly slow or poor, although our waiter could have been slightly more cheerful. The food arrived quickly, but nothing was up to scratch for the price we paid. A steak was ordered medium, (€20) yet... More

We ate here because of thew view of the Rialto. I wish we hadn't. The food was tasteless and the service was horribly slow. Took 15 minutes to get us a bottle of olive oil after giving us an empty one. Oh yea, our bill showed an amount for 'SERVICE' but we were told that this was not for service,... More

It has been a few years since my trip to Venice in Jan. 2009 but this spot was one I still think of fondly. I visited here at least 4 times during my 7 day visit. I only sat outside along the canal but it was lovely. Birds would visit. Gondalas went buy and the pizza was my favorite. I... More

The location close to the Rialto is great....although the views from many of the outdoor tables are obstructed. It is (perhaps understandably) over-priced because of its location.....but what is inexcusable is their treatment of customers. We arrived around 3pm looking for a (late) light lunch and a drink. The restaurant was not busy and the majority of the outdoor tables... More

The location couldn't be better, just steps from the Rialto Bridge and right on the Grand Canal. The food was good but a little over priced for what we had. But given the view of the canal it was worth every penny. The service was very good with a very attentive wait staff.

We arrived into Venice around 10pm. We were interested in a smaller dinner so asked for 1 pasta entree and drinks. We were treated extrememly rudely and screamed at for not wanting to order more food. The waiter continued to pressure us to order additional food we had no interest in. At that point we quickly decided to forget the... More
