Dropped into this restaurant on a very hot day in Aug we were on a day trip to Venice and this looked a nice location right beside the Grand Canal and near the Rialto bridge. The food was ok but the service was very very slow and we had a tight time schedule and a long wait was not what... More

The food was okay, considered the price, but the staff was incredibly rude! We had 5 different waiters and only one of them was nice, he was a young new waiter. We tried to smile at them several times, but they never even bothered to look at us. Every time we ordered something, it felt like we were in their... More

We were ok on our lunch on 1882, but polenta was normal, pasta also and waiters attention poor. Wouldn't die if I eat there again but wouldn't repeat

The restaurant is in perfect location, overlooking the Grand Canal. Perfect for a break and refreshments during sightseeing of magical Venice. The service is excellent. Cakes are perfect. I wish I was there now...

Our legs were weary and our tummies were empty after a long day of walking around Venice. So we found this little place for a glass of wine and dessert around the Rialto Bridge area. We happily found that the back of the ristorante was on the Grand Canal where we spent leisurely time watching people and gondolas float by... More

Fab location and we were delighted to see in the menu that they welcomed vegetarians and even had separate veggie menu. BUT... Having ordered we had a very long wait, so much so that other customers were concerned. When I asked the waiter he said.they had lost the vegetables as they weren't asked for them often. When it came, My... More

This is a great place to rest your legs, have a very nice and reasonably priced coffee whilst watching the hive of activity on the Grand Canal very close by. We also returned for a light lunch which again was good quality and reasonably priced for a table in such a advantageous position next to the Grand Canal close by... More

This is great place to sit and grab a coffee and watch the world go by. Near the canal so you get to watch the water traffic, very close to the Rialto, but no view of it. The coffee we had was lovely and prices not too bad
