We went for lunch one day and had to come back for dinner the next day. The food was absolutely devine. The owners are always there and are eager to help in the food decision. We had monk fish and bass filets one time. Another we had the gnocci and a pork dish. The best dessert I have ever had... More

Restaurant appealed to us from the outside on our second night in Venice, but was rather sterile inside. The proprietor was extremely rude to us from our first coversation as we were taking time to order wine and the prices seemed really high (house wine double that in other restaurants). He then insisted that he was closing the kitchen so... More

This restaurant is located in castello, which is a bit of a trek away from the city centre. The welcome and general service was cool (except for when it came to the bill and the "service not included" comment). The grilled monkfish was very fresh and delicious; the spaghetti vongole was average; the marinated antipasti selection , I suspect, gave... More

When visiting Venice I always like to have dinner at least once in the Arsenale neighborhood. It's an area where tourists seem less inclined to go knick knack shopping so that's worth quite a bit to me from the get. Traveling solo, I was pleased Galeon stocked half bottles of wine and I enjoyed a nice local cabernet blend. The... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the hotel. The reception in the restaurant was rather "cool". First and main course were awful, not fresh and badly prepared. Only the tiramisu was acceptable. Overpriced compared to the low quality of the food. Stay away!

My husband and I joined 3 friends on the vaporetto to Giardini and loved the peaceful walk through the park on a beautiful evening to Il Nuovo Galeon, set in a peaceful and non-touristy part of Venice. We were made to feel very welcome and had great fun with the owner. Most of us started with razor clams which were... More

This pretentious restaurant (can it be called a restaurant ) was the worst experience ever- anywhere! - it came recommended by our hotel nearby on Via Garibaldi. We had asked for a recommendation for a birthday celebration for six people after the opera. I had inquired about some very well famously good restaurants at short notice like Antiche Carampane /Da... More

We decided to try this restaurant as an alternative to a cheaper place up the road with decent food and a copperto of 1 euro, 50. There were not many people when we were seated outside, and the copperto was 3 euro per person but it looked like a fancier place and we wanted to have a nice last meal... More

We went here on the recommendation of the hotel but had an all-round horrible experience. The waiter who also seemed to be the boss was one of the rudest we have experienced. I am not sure what it was about us that trigerred it for him (race perhaps?) but he barked at us, made fun of us when we asked... More
