Patient and accommodating service staff. We didn't speak Italian and the waitress speak little English - she actually brought out the different fish available for the day for us to pick from. Good food for the price. The grilled fish was really very fresh - waitress also deboned the fish for my child. Great lunch!

With all the great reviews we were very happy this restaurant was only a block away from our hotel in Cannaregio. We had dinner there on a Saturday night but were really disappointed. I agree with the reviews about great service and portion size but the food was really not very good. We had a starter of baby shrimp, gnocchi... More

Spike decent English and even helped us with our Italian. Definitely worth... More

I'm Italian but I inform you that is not simple to find in Venice a restaurant with typical and good food at the right price. Well, Da Gigio is the place!!! Typical atmosphere, very good and kind service, excellent Venice food (seafood is the best) good prices and...a drink offered in the end! I can ask no more!

Had dinner here a number of years ago when recommended by a local shopkeeper, Enjoyed it then and decided to return for lunch after leaving our cruise ship. This visit was as good as the last. We sat in the courtyard at the back. Enjoyed great pasta and chicken escalope with salad. Prices were reasonable especially for this town!

Very nice atmosphere, the food was delivered in reasonable time (15-20mins) and the portions where the largest in any restaurant I went to in Venice. The quality and taste of the food were also extremely good. Overall a very good experience.
