The waiter chased demanding for some sort of payment for using the toilet to then put the money in the bin. Not sure what point he was trying to prove. Stay clear of this place they don’t deserve any custom. The food is disgusting the...More

Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob

Sit down yes...eat too I do not think so. Italian bars are very conscious of the "aperitivo".

Yes. You can sit inside. But I never got to sit inside. It may be packed. I imagine colder months more people want to sit inside.
