We went into this restaurant for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. The front of it appeared to be more of a bar but we were shown into the back area. As we were flying home that night we wanted to fill ourselves up as we would not be eating for a long time. As such, we decided to have a... More

Me and my partner visited this restaurant after reading some good reviews about it. I thought it would be a traditional Italian restaurant, although I now disagree. The bread was stale, my main course was meatballs and "potatoes" which tasted like canned meatballs with lumpy, watery sauce and came with a plate of chips. My partners pizza looked like it... More

We stumbled upon this place having taken the boat across from Venice. It appeared to be a cafe/bar for locals, popping in for a glass of wine or lunchtime spritz. The air was somewhat smoky, cooking fumes perhaps. We ordered the special pizza which was actually really nice, but the general hygiene of the place wasn't great, bread being cut... More

We both had pizza at Glacial, despite the fact that pizza is not a traditional dish in Venice. Both pizzas were excellent. Mine was Napolitano -- with anchovies and capers. My partner had one loaded with red and yellow peppers and eggplant. The house white wine was good. The service was exceptionally friendly and attentive. Prices were very reasonable. Highly... More

Stopped here for lunch on our way to film festival. Service was good. We enjoyed the pizza. Crust was super thin. I had the marinara which had no cheese (my preference) so crust was really crisp. My husband had la speciale and his was nicely browned/blackened on the bottom with a good amount of toppings. Portions are generous and prices... More

We visited this restaurant twice whilst staying the Venice as it was just that good. The waiters were friendly and spoke good English and the atmosphere felt good. I saw a few people eating spaghetti which also looked good.

We stumbled upon this place after walking from the vaporetto stop along the main street in Lido while trying to find the beach. We ordered the pizza, salad and wine. It was very delicious and they weren't stingy with the cheese on the pizza or our salad! If you get a chance try the "la speciale" which was there specialty... More
