We made reservations for 12:00 on Sunday, and were the first customers of the day. Within 30 minutes, packed! Service inviting, warm, appropriately prompt. We stepped out of our Italian wine comfort zone, and were pleasingly delighted with an Israeli dry red table wine. My friend and I shared a mixed appetizer- a little bit of Middle Eastern Everything Yummy! Followed by a delightful light Matzo Ball soup. My friend had eggplant dish, Moussaka. I had (chicken) Shawarma- both very fresh and tasty!
Definitely give this little jewel a try and be sure to make reservations!

Haven't been to Gam Gam for over five years, so dropping back there at a time of acqua alta was a double adventure. No disappointment awaited! Still young, dynamic and courteous staff (part-timers from the uni just up Canareggio?) and the food for vegetarians was especially sublime. Deep fried artichokes (wow!) plus their hummus with mushrooms (delish) then eggplant getto style meant FOUR diverse and different aubergine choices. Everything was superb. When the picture over our table fell of the wall above us they had a very laid back attitude (comforting, we think?!) and the only room for improvement was in the wines where Israeli white and red didn't measure up to the superb Italian wines being offered at the flooded café just a few doors away back to the ponte. But stlll, eating-wise, Gam Gam gave us a brilliant experience!

It's worth taking the trip out to this little restaurant which is located in the former Jewish Ghetto away from the usual tourist areas (took about 30 mins to walk from San Marco square). Food was the best we had in Venice, delicately spiced and well presented. Prices were moderate, very good value for the quality of food. The inside isn't fancy and has more of a cafe feel than a posh restaurant. Although it seems to cater mainly to local/Jewish customers we were made to feel very welcome despite being obviously non-Jewish tourists. . The place was packed though, and service was almost too quick - clearly trying to get people in and out as quickly as possible. No time to linger in this restaurant - enjoy the food and then take a wander outside.

We stumbled across this whilst walking through the Ghetto in the rain and needed somewhere for a late lunch. Don't be put off by the fact that it is kosher and looks nothing special, because the food is very good indeed. Fresh baked bread, an excellent house special with a range of antipasti served in little dishes with great falafel and humus, baba ganoush and an outrageously spicy dip. The potato latkes with Apple sauce were exceptional and the main dish of aubergine with chickpeas in a smokey tomato sauce quite unique. Make this restaurant a destination when you plan your Venice itinerary - a very different casual and friendly place to eat with great food and very good service.

Had read many positive reviews so tried the restaurant out early evening when it wasn't too busy. Staff were very friendly and helpful and allowed me time to choose my food. The selection is interesting to say the least but I voted for fish and fresh mixed salad with a glass of white wine. The salmon was a generous portion and the salad very good indeed. Couldn't fault the food at all. Didn't return simply as I wanted to try other restaurants but would certainly recommend Gam Gam to any first time visitors to Venice.
