I didn't even get a chance to sample the food here. Me and my partner came and said we wanted a pizza, there was no other customers at the restaurant, after much huffing and talking in Italian the manager clearly begrudgingly came out and said he could see to us but it's his lunch break (i could see him in...

We went there for the view but I should have checked the reviews first. The raw numbers don't do it justice; this is the worst food I have tasted in Italy. My mixed seafood grill was bitter and acrid with 2 tiny lettuce leaves constituting a side salad. Generally the food tastes as if it has been fried in oil... More

Had just arrived and had one hour to spare before we could check in, so went for lunch. The two of us shared a Romana Pizza and a mixed salad, along with a large beer and a glass of prosecco. Pizza was lovely and even the 'couvert' bread was good. With the cover charge it came to 24 Euros, which... More

I ate here 3 times during my recent stay on the Lido (May 2016). Pizza was very good the escalope Milanese was OK and the mixed fish grill really good - maybe the best squid I ever had - beautifully seared and really tender. The place is busy and service on one occasion was a bit quick (it is a... More

We had the two best pizzas of or (quite long) lives! The owner (of >30 years) was amazing. Almost single-handedly, he served us all his team's super pizzas and at the same time chatted to us, as though he had not a care in the world - and other customers to serve. Super experience.

Our first meal here was very good, pizza in the sunshine with prosecco, nothing wrong with that! We returned a day or so later and this time we had to sit inside. This was quite an experience. The interior is a bizarrely decorated place with lots of fish and a large scantily clad wooden woman. When it is off season... More

A wide variety on the menu of food that was like home cooked. The prices of the food and wine were reasonable as Venice can be an expensive place. The decor was a bit old fashioned but then it's not a fancy place, just good food and the service was quite quick too.

Very strange experience - not sure if it was because it was out of season or just that's the way it is but the waiter (manager) is very unfriendly to most guests and nice to his regulars it seems. From reading other reviews I would guess there are two waiters as the reviews seem to the two extremes. We were... More
