This place charges a service charge AND a gratuity charge. How many tourists eat here and fall into the trap?! Don't eat here, as it's a rip off. Food is ok, but what a palaver the waiter made of filleting a fish at our table,(a job I could have completed in seconds, but which took him minutes.) No doubt part... More

We stopped by here for lunch and sat outside on the canal. The food was great and at reasonable prices. We loved the view of the canal and watching the boats go by. The service was great as well.

We have been to the restaurant on three occasions in three separate occasions over seven years and have always enjoyed our visit especially as we ;love fish - the local speciality dishes are wonderful and we enjoy watching the water taxis and goods boats passing by as you eat - waiters are attentive and happy to offer advice on wines...

Me and my girlfriend recently went to Venice for her birthday. We decided to have a meal at Ristorante Alla Conchiglia as it looked nice from the bridge. The staff were very friendly and prompt while serving us and the food was nice. We did have a starter, main and a cheese board to share but I feel it was... More

Having a fantastic time in the rain in Venezia. This is the best seafood and best service we have had so far. We recommend the stuffed squid, the scampi and prawns and the baked scallops. Great lunch watching the gondolas pass by! Come all!!!

We chose this restaurant because it was so close to our apartment....right beside our picturesque canal but off the beaten path a little so much quieter than eating along the Grand Canal. All in all, it was a nice dinner...staff were pleasant, we were seated immediately even though we didn't have a reservation and our food was okay....nothing spectacular but... More

It has a nice location with tables right by a somewhat lesser but still busy canal. Lots of taxis and cargo boats going by. So if that's a distraction you want to avoid, go elsewhere. The service was friendly and prompt. I heard the server speaking English to some of the other customers. I had the menu fisso... only E17... More

We went here without consulting Trip Advisor, and I'm glad we did, as the reviews weren't stellar. My wife and I both had seafood pasta dishes that were very fresh, delicious and reasonably priced (10-12 Euro). Of course the wine, bottled water and antipasti increased the price threefold. The service was the best we've had in Europe. This just emphasizes... More

This restaurant does a special job of selecting and preparing the freshest seafood daily. We had Dorado, sea bass and turbo and they were all exquisite lay prepared. The wait staff was attentive, skilled, and congenial. It was such a lovely evening we returned again two nights later. Again, we were thrilled. We wish we had not paid attention to... More
