The service is very good unless you are getting there with an organised very big group of people and your order is lost on the way. But the food is good, nothing spectacular, but good

as soon as i stepped into this place, i had a bad feeling. the waitress had an attitude when i asked her several questions about the food (rolled her eyes, breathing heavily) after trying the main dish and it tasting horribly, i asked to have it sent back and the owner instantly came out and started saying how the food was fresh and was very good despite me insisting that it didnt taste good and i only had a bite. finally, he took the dish back. i told the waitress to cancel the rest of the order but when i went to pay for the check, i saw that i had been charged for everything, including the food that i cancelled as well as the dish that i had sent back. owner gave me an attitude and insisted that i pay for everything that i never got. overall horrible experience. i will be disputing this charge when it shows up on my credit card and i urge you all to avoid this hassle.

The food was ok. I ordered the tourist prixe fix menu which came with seafood pasta, fried calamari, and roasted vegetables. The pasta was not al dente (more American style) and I would have liked the shells on my mussels so as to be more assured of their freshness. The wine was overpriced at 9 euro for 1/2 liter. The decor was a mishmash of styles which gave the restaurant a bit of a corny feel.

Booked table for 10. When we turned up, nothing was prepared. We had to stand up, until seats were ready. Ordered food, another 65 minutes waiting time. Average food, but the ragu was perfect!

Unfortunately, "liar, liar, pants on fire" fits this restaurant exactly. For those not familiar with Italy, bottled water seems to be the only water available but you can ask for tap water, "acqua de rubinetto". Some restaurants will give you various reasons why they can't but this one went above and beyond. The waiter actually tried to tell us that the Venice tap water comes from the canals and that the police would take him away if he tried to serve tap water. I told the waiter that this was not true and that the water comes from the Alps. The waiter could not respond to this and walked away.

I later told our tour hostess and she was shocked and said that these folks are not good Venetians.

And they have the gall to have a TripAdvisor sticker on their window. I would ask the folks at Tripadvisor to ask that their sticker be removed. This type of purposely deceitful behavior certainly warrants removal of any implied approval by Tripadvisor.

Otherwise, the food was fair to ordinary. But one has to wonder to what extents they will go to make a profit. I would not recommend this place to anyone because of the deceitfulness. The posted daily specials were full of tricks regarding service fees and cover charges as well.
