“Very nice location, excellent fresh fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

Just below the very nice "Hotel Grand Italia", we were told of its good cuisine. And it was indeed worthy to have lunch there. The "patron" is really fond of his work (see him in front of the restaurant) ; he personally helped us in choosing the most exquisite seafish dishes for the period, and they were fantastic, very well presented, good portions, a little bit high priced, but the quality warrants the price level.

“Skilled Seafood Chef”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

Having read the previous reviews, I ask if we were dining in the same restaurant. Our experience with the food quality and service was excellent. This was our first visit to Chioggia and naturally were looking for some good seafood since Chioggia is Italy's second largest fishing port. We went in blind, not having the opportunity to research restaurants. The dining room is elegantly decorated, table and chair linens top quality and light relaxing music (Diana Krall, Norah Jones etc.) played in the background.

We were greeted with a complimentary prosecco and a sample of bacala mantecata.
The waiter was helpful in reciting what fish dishes were fresh and made suggestions on what to order seeing that we wanted to try new and innovative recipes. We started by sharing an order of hot antipasti (clams and sea scallops) and an order of boiled seafood antipasti. Both presentations were skillfully plated and tasty.

We then moved on to pasta dishes, fettuccini prepared with fresh crabmeat and another short pasta prepared with shrimp and artichokes. Both were excellent. This was followed by a split, then grilled fish which was topped with saor onions. The fish was fresh though I personnally didn't care for the saor which over powered the bottle of Pinot Grigio we were drinking. For dessert my wife had a local cake from Chioggia which was made from squash. She enjoyed it and I had a cafe and glass of grappa.

We were the only diners in Alle Baruffe at lunch time and the owner explained that they are more busy for the evening meal. This being January, there were not many tourists in Chioggia. Alle Baruffe is a nice setting for a romantic dinner, or to celebrate special occasions. It is also good for business lunch/dinners. Prices are high, however I feel the quality of food and chef skills warrant the price level.

“Poor Service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2011 via mobile

Fantastic location but spoilt by poor service. Tried the Bar twice. First time we waited 30 minutes for our drinks to arrive and got nowhere with the waiter so left in the end without a drop passing our lips.
Gave the Bar a second chance. Still slow to serve but did actually get a drink this time.
Third attempt we tried the restaurant but after sitting there for 15 minutes no-one had even come over and offered us a menu or a drink so we left again!
Think they don't need to try very hard because of the great location.
Needless to say we will not go back.
