“atrocious service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

We were looking forward to going to this restaurant for some tasty, authentic food on our last night in venice but were met with extremely rude and inconsiderate staff.
We hadn't booked but it was still relative early and there were empty tables. We waited for twenty minutes only to be ignored by the staff and pushed over by the locals who also didn't have reservations with bigger parties than us who DID get served.
My rating is solely based on this experience as we ended up walking out and I cannot vouch for the food as we didn't get to sample any!
If you're not Italian I'd stay away from this place as not to spoil a good evening. We did find a lovely local near by and finally got to enjoy some lovely cicchetti without the snobby service :)

“Magical”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

We stopped in here for a few glasses of wine whilst wandering around at night.

There's an immediate warmth to the atmosphere, and the staff are friendly and have a great sense of humour. We paid 50c per glass of their robust house red, and enjoyed couple of meatballs each from the counter for a similarly small sum. We ate and drank quickly as we stood by the counter, though we didn't feel rushed at all, and just enjoyed interacting with the staff until it was time to move on.

With more time I'd have loved to stop for a full meal, but as a place to stop by when you're soaking in Venice at night, it's fantastic.

“This doesn't exist!!”

Let down by the tripadvisor app. This is really Trattoria Ca D'Oro which is in a different but nearby location.

“Rude!!!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2014

Having been recommended highly by a Italian friend, me and my boyfriend were keen to try some traditional Venetian cuisine. The food was nice and can see why people talk about their meatballs - sausagey, bread crumby, sagey falafel-style goodness!!! But what put a real damper on things was the RUDE small lady that worked there (I can only assume she was one of the owners by the way she swanned about the place)... Spoke to me and my boyfriend like rubbish from the get-go - I'm not sure what we did wrong?!? Maybe it was put money into her pockets and be a English tourist in her restaurant?!? Face like thunder!!! Someone needs to sit her down and give her a little lesson in customer service - because what good is nice food when the person serving it is a sour-faced misery!??? Must admit - food is good but not worth enduring her attitude!!!

Excellent spaghetti alla vongole, and good house wine served in tiny little glasses at the bar. Welcoming staff. Will be back!
