We attended Ristorante La Nuova Grotta during our stay in Venice Italy and after trying many others, these guys were absolutely amazing. It started from the front door, where the young man rolled out the red carpet, brought us to the wine cellar and offered us to pick one of these very rare and delicious wines... The same young man...

We thought at first that the wait was too long, as did an American couple waiting with us. We were all on the point of leaving when we were attended to, and we are very glad we waited. The meal was fabulous! I had lobster tagliatelle, which was truly the best lobster I have ever eaten. The food was excellent,... More

This was the biggest rip off in Venice!! The waiter offered us the selection of seafood and as it was a "special" the price was not listed on the menu. It was a rookie mistake for my parter and I to not ask the price beforehand. I offered the sea bass for one, at a price of €7,00 per 100g.... More

Walking the streets of Venice we saw their seafood selection on display. Everything looked very fresh and appetizing. The guy out side was telling us about the food and said if we came back he would give us a 10% discount. Our friends that we were traveling with their name is La Grotta. When we arrived for dinner they greeted... More

We were (foolishly) enticed into this restaurant by the waiter who stood at the door and also by the good-looking fresh fish in the window. We went inside and were served a drink (which we didn't order, but we're later charged for) and a cold, tasteless bun (for which we were also charged) . The appetizer we ordered was ok,... More

We sat down on the table thinking we would only have to pay the 17€ menu, right when we came in they served us each a water bottle without even asking for it, when we asked how much it was, each one was 3€ so we told them that we didn't ask for it and after a long argument they... More

The food was delicious and the service was friendly and very attentive. We visited there twice when we were in Venice. The second time we were treated to a free drink before we ate, and an after dinner drink on the house. We would return again!

We visited on a whim because we were starving and this looked liked the best option in the vicinity, and we paid the price! It was expensive, strangely old fashioned inside, and the service was not great. The waiter told us not to bother with the set menu because none of the ingredients are fresh! Ordering from the a la... More

A waiter in front of the restaurant convinced us to come into the restaurant. Getting solicited to come into a restaurant is probably a bad sign. The prices are very high for the food that you get. The price for a 6 ounce glass of red house wine was 6 Euros. They wanted 9 Euros for a 0.5l bottle of... More

Good meal, excellent service, but when the bill came, I discovered instead of the 9 euro sea bass, we had apparently been served a 51 euro special sea bass dinner. Wondered about the table side preparation, but it was a slow night. Instead of the expected 45 or so euros, it came to 102 euros - ouch! Caveat emptor. Good... More
