We stumbled on this place our first evening in Venice. The waiter came up to us but not with the usual pressure. We ate a delicious meal. And went there 5days in a row. The waiter 'Sorry' and 'his excuse-me' are very pleasant to watch. They work with a smile! It's also very child-friendly. Another positive thing is that the... More

After wandering around Venice, this looked as good as anyplace to stop and eat, and as always I checked for a TripAdvisor sign on the door. I saw one, but did not have internet to check it, next time I definitely will , as I was truly disappointed. Three of us ordered different things, none of them were good. Salty,... More

From the minute we browsed the menu outside deciding to sit or not, we were both invited to take a table (without the usual pressure) and entertained. A free glass of of wine while we waited, a wonderful meal, a quiet ambience in the piazza and a very enjoyable waiter. His name is "Sorry" but we have absolutely no regrets... More

we decided to have something other than pizza for our last meal and this was lovely. We sat outside under large shades. The waiter (Sorry) was slightly bonkers but made us laugh. He was keen for us to have expensive wine but we were happy with the house white. He recommended the Seafood Spaghetti which was great. The Bruschetta was... More

Salty, salty, poor tasting food. Pigeons and dogs wandering throughout the eating area. Frozen, nasty fish. Inedible entrees. We had to just get and leave. Server tried to pressure us into ordering the most expensive items on the menu by telling us the other food was "yucky." That should have been our immediate sign to leave.

If you eat gluten-free and find yourself in the Santa Croce district of Venice and looking for a very nice meal with a little character, this Canton dei Artitsti is the place! It seems the closer you get to the train station, the more touristy the restaurants are... my philosophy on eating out in Italian cities is to find a... More

This was relatively close to where we were staying, and after a long train journey we didn't want to venture too far on our first night. It's on one of the squares and we let the waiter (according to his badge, his name was 'Sorry') point us towards the best dishes. The pasta with seafood was memorable. Well worth a... More

My Mother and I arrived here after getting lost looking for a church and just needed a sit down and a drink but soon decided to have a full three course meal after seeing the menu. We fancied a traditional bruschetta og tomatoes and garlic to start and although another variety was on the menu the owner was happy to... More
