This restaurant is in a great location and the food is great value. Paid €31 for lunch for the two of us. Service was great and food tasted good. Not sure why other reviews are so bad.

PIZZERIA LA RIVETTA, SAN POLO, 1479 VENICE. Located close to the Scuelo di San Rocco, one of the great gems of Venice seldom visited, this restaurant has a cosy and atmospheric feel to it. We dropped in for lunch at 1300 but the waiters standing outside seemed miffed that we opted to eat inside (probably because they thought if we... More

Bad and rude service. Food is soso. Half of my food was cold. like heated in a microwave. The serving size was poor. Hidden charges like cover €1.50 normally other restaurants display their cover charge on the menu. I also got extra charge €4.86 for no reason. Only tourist visit this place. No local would ever visit this place and... More

We hadn't read the other reviews before going here. We were looking for somewhere else but the maps for Venice are very hard to read...more detail TA please. We gave up and just stopped here. We found it perfectly acceptable. The food was fine, the waiter was very attentive indeed. For example, he saw me squeezing the last bit of... More

My wife and I ate here for lunch thinking we were going to experience a nice Italian lunch, but boy were we wrong. One of the main reasons we choose this place was the sign(s) that stated FREE. WIFI! We did not have access at the apartment we stayed at so thought we could catch up up while at lunch.... More

1 Water bottles are filled with tap water, they claim they are sealed bottles, they will open them for you so you can not see if they were sealed! 2 They will try to trick you with the bill by imposing excessive charges, bad at math! 3 They will claim that the bill can not be taken by you, (to...

My spaghetti carbonara were without any taste. Prices are reasonable, but they charged us 8 EUR service fee automatically without prior notice! Service was without problem. In total, we'll never come back again.

The food was good, at a fair price. Nothing to complain about there. The waiters were pushy though, they were obviously set on getting as many seats filled and getting you to order, eat and get out as quickly as possible. Efficient for their business, perhaps, but this is not how you should treat your clientele. Never in my life... More

I really would suggest you avoid this place. The food was basic. The drinks were extortionate. 7 euros service charge was added. We were hurried by the waiters. A real shame we didn't check the reviews first.

We stoped for a quick lunch and foun this nice place in the way to Rialto bridge. It was a nice litlle tratoria next to a small canal, so we decided to try it out. The food was ok, but the prices were fair. It's a nice place for a quick bite.
