I don't understand how people granted good reviews to this place, The food is terrible & the service the worst I ever seen. I understand that holding a kosher place in Venice is not easy however there are limits to how much you could exploit this monopole situation. The only good thing I could say would be about the Shabbat... More

We arrived late in the afternoon the day before Christmas but the restaurant was quite busy all the same. Good atmosphere and very good food. We shared the sample platter which was very tasty. My husband had a meat couscous which he loved and I opted for a red spicy pasta dish which was equally good. Very friendly service too... More

I have been to so many kosher restaurants around the world, but this one situated next to the Jewish Ghetto in Venice is a complete joke. Firstly it doesn´t even look like a restaurant with the small cooking area and the few old tables that have been positioned against the wall. You can see that they have not spent a... More

We were there this Sunday. No steaks no pasta! What a disappointment. The couscous with vegetables wasn't good. The salmon was good. The chocolate mousse was very bad. Shame when they are the only Kosher meat restaurant in Venice.

This was our first evening meal in Venice and we chose Gam Gam because of the good reviews given for vegetarians. Both me and my husband are veggies so thought this would be a good option. How wrong we were. I have no idea what the people are eating who are giving this place 5*s as our meal was one... More

This restaurant offers an excellent variety of Israeli/Italian crossover dishes in a great ambient. This is a loud and crowded restaurant, happy and exuberant atmosphere. The service is dynamic, nice and quick. The dishes are excellent, and the hummus is on the same level as good hummus you get in Jerusalem or Haifa. I have tasted better Israeli Red wines... More

With a wider variety of dishes than just pasta and pizza, this place is a great option to visit in Venice.

Gam Gam is a small restaurant (c. 30 seats inside,10-20 for outside) located right at the entrance of the Jewish ghetto in Venice. It is, at the moment, the only kosher restaurant in Venice and booking in advance is definitely advised. Food is Israeli inspired with a mix of middle east (i.e. hummus, pitta or moussaka) and Ashkenazi tradition (Gefilte... More

A must-go in Venice... The place is cozy and serves simple but delicious kosher meals, at reasonable prices (one starter, one main dish, one dessert + wine: in the range of €30). Don't miss the falafels and the moussaka!

We visited this restaurant after hearing about it from friends and reading some promising reviews. The place is well presented and the location is nice, but to be fair it is hard to think of a restaurant in Venice with a bad location. The menu was rather limited. The food was nice but in no way special. What was extremely... More
