Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

We were walking around trying to find a restaurant for dinner and stumbled across this one. Michelin stars displayed on the door we know we were in for a treat. Walter assisted us as we ate dinner and yummy dessert! Please try the Millefiori white chocolate dessert!!!!

“What a great find”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

Were trying to find a different restaurant and gave up. Coming across Bistrot de Venise we noticed the Tripadvisor rating in the window. Very glad we did as we had a wonderful meal - real fine dining but without the pomp. I highly recommend the Scampi in almond tempura with lemon mascarpone dip - simply brilliant. Waiter suggested an excellent bottle of wine and all in all loved everything. The photo is of the sweet which was believe it or not rice pudding - but with a difference including pieces of mint flavoured meringue.

“Great Food and Good Location”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

Overall the experience was not bad. The food was great, but the service is probably what you would expect in a typical Italian restaurant.

We had a reservation at 7PM on a Sunday night and was seated promptly. We had outdoor sitting and had an appetizer, a Primi, and a Secondi (meat) to share among the two of us. The food were great, probably one of the best we had during our Italy trip. The service was OK - probably the same with other restaurants we've experienced.

“Best meal in Venice”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

Lovely restaurant with fantastic service and even better food. The menu had both old fashioned Venice specialties and dishes that were a little more nouvelle. Great wine selection too.
