“Best gelato in Vencie”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

We had gelato twice a day during 9 days in Italy, and the gelato they sell out the side window was the best we had in Venice. We went twice in the short time we were in Venice

“Racist and rude.”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Having gone to the Bar for a coffee I will never return despite its good location. I ordered a coffee and was presented with a ticket for some bizarre reason they seem to expect you to order what you want twice as I will explain. I was on the phone at the time so my girlfriend presented to ticket to an old boy that was working by the coffee machine. When he finally acknowledged her presence he then looked at her blankly for a good 30seconds which can feel like a long time when a crow like man is staring at you without blinking or saying anything. I promptly got off the phone as this man was going out of his way to insult my beloved. He said 'well? What do you want?' My girlfriend said that we ordered a coffee. He replied 'all it says is €4, that could be a fanta or a coke'. Yes of course we thought that logically the coffee we ordered would be on the ticket.... But no this bar defies logic. I told him that yes we are sorry we did not state what we wanted but he seemed to have enough command of the English language to ask my girlfriend what it was she wanted. He tutted 'Americans......' In which I replied 'no British! And don't be so racist'. He carried on swearing. No where in the world do I ever expect to be spoken to like this let alone in the EU as a paying costumer.
