“As expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

Food was good but found the staff to be non-attentive. The location was nice beside the canal which is why we picked it but there are so many choices that I would not go back.

“Good food but overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012 via mobile

We had lunch at this restaurant & it was very pleasant to watch the world go by on the canal. I had the gnocchi in crab sauce which was very good & my husband had an average pasta marinara. The service was OK but the whole experience was overpriced.

“It's ok for the view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012 via mobile

Food ok. Price as expected in Venice. Bill added a service charge, but the waiter kept hinting that service was not included?!

“very pleasant, a bit over-priced but it's Venice !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

Nice to sit by the canal and take in the passing gondola rides, service very friendly, nice rather than outstanding food, the additional charges on your bill never sit comfortably with us (service charge AND cover charge - what's that all about ?) but the accordion player who serenades you at your table is a nice extra (although he expects a tip too !) Overall : very good.

“Great meal on the canal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

Vegetarian options were excellent and the pasta in lobster sauce came with incredible chunks of meat. Wine available was excellent and the service was attentive. I understand the previous posters comments, this is not a place to eat if you are on a budget. It is a wonderful mini-splurge as is most of Venice. Check service was typical of all of Europe, you have to ask for it. Two entrees, one appetizer, four glasses of wine about 60€.
