I'd just arrived at the C'a Dei Dogi Hotel and after a 10 hour train trip I didn't feel like venturing out for dinner on my first night. The info card in the room said the adjoining restaurant was open till 10pm but when I called at 8.15 to see if I could get a table I was told only if I went straight down as they were about to close. The waiter greeted me with 'You'll have to hurry,' which put a bit of a dampener on things to start off! I had the Gnocchi with Gorgonzola sauce and, as other reviewers have said the gnocchi itself was very tender. The sauce was good but not extraordinary; the bread rolls were dry and very ordinary - a bit like McDonald's rolls, rather than what I expected of Italian bread! I ordered some of the house red wine and it was too sweet for my liking. By Venice standards it probably wasn't overly expensive but I won't be hurrying back.
