We were looking for a very special place in Venice to celebrate my 50th birthday. Friends in Venice recommended this restaurant and it did not disappoint! Service was exceptional all the way through the meal. We did order from the house wine menu (20-40 Euros per bottle) and the selections were very good. And no, it did not effect our service at all. I started with the tris di tartare and my husband started with the carpaccio. Both were delicious! For the first course, we both opted for the lobster ravioli and it was cooked perfectly al dente and the filling was wonderful. For the main course I had the sea bass and my husband had the veal. Again, both were cooked perfectly, melt in your mouth and the flavors were just sublime. We shared the chocolate mousse for dessert and it was over the top fantastic.
The location of the restaurant cannot be beat and the views from the tables along the water's edge were breath taking and VERY romantic. Try to schedule your visit at sunset as we did. You will not regret it!
I cannot fathom what has happened to the people who have given this place a bad review. The only thing I can think is that they have not had this level of dining experience before so they may not know what to expect. We have, and I cannot recommend this restaurant more highly! The service, the staff, the food, the location, my 50th birthday was absolutely perfect :)
