“Average pasta with 2 euro cover charge”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

I ate shrimp pasta with rucola. It was very average. The disappoint part was, this restaurant was recommended by my hotel for the pizza. They also added 2 euro cover charge for the meal. That was surprising.

“I thought this place was going to be a tourist ripoff but...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014 via mobile

We were very hungry and Gam Gam was packed so we decided to try this place, although we didn't expect much. I figured that it would be touristy and terrible. The food, the pizza and the wonderful pasta with garlic and olive oil ( fabulous, loads of garlic), hit the spot. We ate outside and the only downside was the service was at a snail's pace. I wanted to go back and get the pasta for myself ( my dish was the very good pizza) but it wasn't very close to our hotel. Very good choice in the Ghetto.

“Gorgeous”

Ate here last night, great and friendly. Reasonably priced for Venice!
Good variable menu, beautiful homemade warm bread and freshly made pizzas in front of you, my steak Rossini was beautiful too - lovely staff too.

“Hard to find a lousy restaurant in Italy, but we did”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

This place is just outside of the ghetto, opposite the ghetto information bureau. There were four of us, and when one asked where the bathroom was, he was told that he could not, as if was for customers only. I should point out that there was little foot traffic in the area, and we were the only patrons in the restaurant.
I know, I know: with that sort of reception, we should have taken our cue and left.
The mats on the table were dirty, and we should have left.
My wife ordered a half carafe of wine, which was totally sour, undrinkable. They did take it back without argument. the food was not adequately heated, and not particularly tasty, hot or otherwise. The did heat it up at our request.
There were 4 of us dining, 2 of us did not feel so good afterwards.
The people running the place were not friendly.
