“One of the best meals ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014 via mobile

After many trips to Europe, my husband and I agree that Taverna La Fenice was one of our best meals ever. We were quite surprised at several average reviews. We found the pasta to be fresh and perfectly cooked. Meat courses perfectly prepared. The staff we very proper and friendly. Such a relaxing and delicious meal with an old world Italian feel. Highly recommend.

“Staff was very accommodating”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2014

We were in Venice late January so many establishments were closed. We had dinner one night and just dessert the next. Staff were very nice and attentive. Allowed us to come in out of the rain and sit 15 minutes prior to the kitchen opening for dinner. Our meals were good but pricey.

“tourist restaurant”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

Was hoping for some classic Italian food as this restaurant came recommended by our hotel. I had lasagna. it was awful, hard on the edges, just layers of pasta and bechamel with a bit of bolognese sauce over the top.

“Gorgeous Christmas Eve Dinner ...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013

We had a very memorable Christmas Eve dinner (I recommend their fish special menu - if you like fish) and enjoyed a very nice bottle of Valpolicela Ripasso at a very reasonable price especially for Venice. There were some lovely aspects of service such as the welcome starters. Our only criticism is that this was pre-booked and paid by our friends for our honeymoon but no mention was made of it by the staff, i.e. we did not feel as though the service was personalised in any way - a mere congratulations would have been nice. That said we spent almost three hours enjoying the atmosphere, the food and the occasion.

“High expectations and disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013

Came her because it was recommended. very pretentious and overpriced. But then again, this is venice and expect to pay 40Euro pp. in this type of restaurant. What do you get for 40Euro??? try calf liver and polenta and couple of fried zuchinni flowers and mushrooms.
ok, well this is what you pay for real venetian food...but come on!!!
you keep charging like this...i no come no more. Prego!
