Expensive but well worth it, try the classic and modern too

Splendid restaurant, a wonderfully atmospheric dining room with lots of dark wood and lush red tapestries on the walls and lots of intimate corners. I consumed a fine bottle of Veneto wine, all six items on the seafood sampler (delicious every one of them) and the old-fashioned duck. Pretty much... read more

This is a nice authentic Venetian restaurant but very expensive. Be prepared to pay around 65 Euros per person for food alone without any wine or drinks. Portions on the small side. The staff is very friendly and the sommelier was very knowledgeable about the wines on offer.

Now this place had great wine and decent food but for the price value it is overly hyped. It's on the pricey side of things and portions are small. Staff was on point so no complaints there.

I booked this restaurant before going to Venice and emailed them to book a table. When I arrived we were shown to a lovely table and the restaurant was fully booked - need to book in advance to get a table. They really spoiled us. Nothing was too much trouble. We have a dietary requirement which was fully catered for.... More

A lovely centrally located restaurant with a good selection of Italian and Venetian dishes and a great wine list. The staff were great - my starter was particularly delicious. And the whole restaurant had a really nice atmosphere

We were actually quite full having been eating all day in Venice but wanted to make sure we tried this place given all the rave reviews. Overall, very pleasant with colourful and friendly staff. The seafood risotto and black squid pasta were delicious. However, made a mistake on ordering the amberjack which was dry and tasted a little over cooked.... More

Lovely food and fantastic service. They offer a mix of modern classics as well as old recipes, which is rather nice. A little pricey but well worth a visit, and easily the finest food we had on our visit to Venice. A special mention to a special waiter as well, Walter Travolta made the s all feel very welcome and... More

I am writing this review knowing full well that the management writes back with nasty comments to the reviewers--which is the tackiest tactic I have ever seen used on Trip Advisor. The fact that we had no problem getting into this restaurant on Mardis Gras Tuesday in Venice should have told us a lot. The food was nothing better than... More

Great food and enormous choice of Italian Wines. The Bellini is better here than at Harry's Bar. Waiters very friendly and attentive. It was my second time to be there and I will go there again next time I am in Venice.
