The location of the restaurant is marvellous, with lovely views to the ocean, but that's all. The staff is helpful, but the food was disappointing. The restaurant needs to step up their game when it comes to food served, as the quality was extremely low.

Along the gondola ports. Very busy along the outdoor seating as opposite market stalls. Food was lovely and service was quick and polite. 5 minute walk from St Marks Square. Reasonable pricing considering location. WiFi was slow.
