The best on the Canal.

What out for tourist traps in Venice. The Italian food in Italy is just not as good as what we get in the USA. I have to say that FLORIDA was one, if not the best on-the-canal-restaurant in Venice.

All the staff are arrogant and are basically just after your money. There nice as pie before you sit down but that soon changes after you've ordered your first course, then it's down hill from there. Foods not bad, but very over priced for standard food. Do yourself a favour and go over the other side of the bridge and... More

Absolute tourist trap, staff are arrogant and obnoxious, steer clear! For the sake of 0.20 euro short in change which was basically the optional service charge on a glass of wine, the short sighted staff couldn't act sensibly and let it go but instead made a big deal over nothing. Oh dear...

Myself and my husband ordered a starter for me because I wasn't particularly hungry, a main for my husband, a dessert, water, bottle of wine and two coffees. When we ordered the food the waiter was rude and seemed annoyed that we hadn't ordered more food! We ate the meal, which was edible but nothing special. We seemed to be... More

We (family of four staying four days in Venice in Ovtober 2014) decided to try to have lunch by Grand Canal close to the Rialto bridge. Yes, a bit suspicious because of the location. The first place we tried served practically all frozen food, so we left. Fortunately, because that way we found Florida. Sitting at a table 30 cm... More

We were on a day tour of Venice and were expecting to be "ripped off" in Venice but apart from the extortionate car parking and river ferry charges we were very pleasantly surprised to find this restaurant at lunch time with reasonable prices and on the Grand Canal near the Rialto Bridge. We had been told that the al Paradiso... More

We wanted to try some fresh seafood and eat by the canal, so we sat down at Florida - but we experienced the worst dinner experience EVER! We ask the waiter (the old man who acts as if he is the manager) the cost of the seafood - he told us one grill fish is 90 Euro. Grilled shrimp is... More

After an exhausting day of touring, we just wanted to sit down and have a meal on the way back to our apartment. The iridescent egg shaped table lights at this canal side restaurant on the western side of the Rialto attracted our teenage son who liked the 'cool' factor of the site. When we mentioned to our server that... More

Just by pure coincidence, my girlfriend and I were in Venice during the annual Regata Storica, and it was later in the afternoon on a day where we'd been running around like tourists do and hadn't had lunch yet. My main goal was to find a place where we would have a prime view of the parade and gondola races,... More
