A restaurant which stays open late is a bit of a rarity in Venice so this is a good place to eat after a concert or theatre performance. It is modern and shiny and the staff are welcoming and friendly. I agree with other reviewers that the television screens give a sports/music bar vibe to what otherwise feels like a fine dining restaurant. Maybe they are trying to be all things to all people. Anyway, whilst a bit quirky, the style of the place is by no means offensive and a bit of originality doesn't go amiss in what can seem a relatively traditional city.
The menu is very long and a bit confusing. There is a mixture of tapas style dishes or main courses and you can just choose a snack of bread and antipasti or more substantial fare. The menu itself (presented on iPads which seems to be becoming popular in fancy restaurants but is a bit lost on me to be honest!) is a bit tricky to navigate and I think it could do with a bit of editing and reordering. Still, the waiter made a few recommendations and once we got the hang of that, we liked this place a lot.
The cooking was excellent quality and there are some really original dishes to try. Steak tartare ice-lolly anyone?! The tuna hamburger was delicious and I could have eaten a vat full of the potato purée and foie gras!!
The desserts also looked amazing and we will be returning to try those another day!
There is a lovely, canal-side table which is well worth booking in advance for a special romantic dinner and a few tables outside too.
Am looking forward to coming back and giving this place another go sometime soon. Prices were high but not unreasonable for the standard. The cocktails were great too! Well worth a try!
