“A real let down”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

My husband and i ate at ca dolfin tonight and it was a real let down - microwaved lasagne, old brown salad garnish, tinned artichokes on the pizza and service way too fast for freshly cooked food. We managed to stretch the meal out but after an hour or so we had had enough! There are much better options within a few minute's walk. We've had better Italian food cooked by ourselves at home ( we are English and live in Lincolnshire so that says it all really )

“Small friendly good food reasonably priced!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Having paid £20 euros for a few scampi finding this place was fortunate. We had pizza and squid with a bottle of wine and it was good quality and reasonably priced. We think the owner himself greets you and the welcome was warm and the service good it is located in a small square with a buzzing tapas bar nearby handy for pre drinks/nibbles. Would recommend to friends.

“Reasonable price, good quality.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

Just had a very reasonably priced evening meal at ca dolphin. The owner is very keen to please and the service was exceptional.

We had pizza and pasta with starters and a bottle of wine and it was one of the better priced / value meals we ate during our stay.

“What a great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

Well not actually that difficult to find, just off the square walking to the rialto bridge. Sat down on one of the two tables outside and the pizza I had was fresh and fantastic. My wide had a salad, again fresh and lovely. Some wine, a beer (both large!) - all great value less than 30euro. Woule greatly recommend.

“The only bad food we had in Italy”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

Should have expected it in such a touristy area, but we were starving and had kids with us so we stopped at the first place we saw. Everyone ordered pizza and all of the toppings were poor quality. It was the only time I left food on my plate in Italy.
