Based on the overall good reviews of this restaurant, the menu and its location along a Venetian Canal we thought we in for a treat. After being seated in a nice scenic spot next to the canal and given the menus it took quite some time before the wait staff came back to take our order. We ordered salmon with... More

We had lunch there and were happy to get a table without reservations. The appetizers are really worthwhile. The rest of the food was good and quickly brought. The waitress was very nice, very helpful especially towards children. A very good place to have lunch after having visited the ghetto. It will change you from the traditional pizza.

We ate at Gam Gam for lunch after reading great venues online and seeing it suggested in travel guides. We stumbled upon it whilst wandering around the Venice ghetto. Our first impression was fantastic, we were met by an extremely friendly member of staff at the door. We managed to get a table immediately, even though the restaurant was quite... More

We really enjoyed going to this place for lunch. The menu has a bit of history about the Jewish population of Venice printed on it - really interesting. The vegetable lasagne was the best we have ever tasted and the schwamara was delicious too. We had cookies for dessert which were lovely. The staff were young and friendly, very helpful.... More

My husband and i recently had dinner at this restaurant. It was a fairly busy place so advisable to book a table for dinner. I had a 3 courses which cost 37 euros and that included 2 freshly squeezed lemonades. The food was okay i guess but i did find my main course which was a chicken breast with mushrooms... More

Went here for lunch today and the food was amazing!! Try the eggplant dish and the fried artichoke from the vegetable section - delicious! We requested for these to be sent as starters instead of sides - worth it! For main course I had a classic - cous cous with meat. Everything was cooked just right and the meatballs were... More

It was wonderful to have lunches and dinners just close to the water. I suggest to sit outside in this place. The staff is very friendly and speaks English very well. They also are prepared on what is vegan in the menu. I kindly suggest the GamGam starter (wide selection of well cooked vegetables, with also felafel and humus) and... More

We had dinner here on a Tuesday and it was packed with locals. This is the first kosher restaurant in the Venice Jewish Ghetto. The Israeli appetizer with falafel is awesome and filling. Highly recommend it. It had the smoothest baba ganoush I've ever tasted. We all enjoyed our entrees. The service was very friendly and efficient. The prices were... More

Although its quite a long haul from the central parts of Venice, it is worth the trip as the food is great and not too pricey. Try the Gam Gam mixed starter for some great tastes of the Middle East. The restaurant is a little bit scruffy but the service is good.
