Ah one of the best parts of traveling to new places is the food!! It was hard to choose where to eat and even harder to choose WHAT to eat. But we ended up choosing Bigoli in Salsa, a traditional Venetian meal. We ate a...small family owned restaurant called The Venetian Experience. The service was exceptional considering several tables were full. With the fast service, it did not take long for our meal to arrive. The meal was beautifully made and absolutely delicious. For dessert we had Zaeti which are Italian cookies and a good way to end our trip. With that being said, we highly recommend this meal and this restaurant and we will come back to this place when we travel to Venice again.More

We came to Bigoli for a nice Italian late lunch . We order to share a meat starter and I had risotto mushroom with truffle. The starter was ok , we asked for bread which is came dry , the staff is busy talking. My...famous risotto was too creamy , good amount of truffle “scaled” . I was a bit disappointed as I was expecting a better quality for what we paid .More

Telling all my disappointment for this restaurant is not easy! The food is of poor quality and the service is unqualified! Pay attention to what you order because the price is greatly increased A particular criticism for the room manager who perhaps thinks be Gordon...Ramsay! total lack of good manners and arrogance are her characteristics! a bath of humility is recommended !More

Been there for business dinner- group of 8 ppl. The service in the place is optimal- nice, polite, invisible yet always present staff. Wine list- OK- typical variety from economical straight to super expensive with no middle part that requires skilled sommelier. Menu- OK- they...run the Italian scheme so they offer some Italian standards. Surprised with pizza on the menu tight next to scampi- kind of missing the point there. Food was of good quality (very good caponata) but nothing spectacular. All in all- not bad.More
