Been here many times and the food is always top notch! Most of the time when you get a serving this size it will be of marginal quality. Not here! This is a very small restaurant so seating for a large party can be a problem. I would suggest reservations if you have a party of six or more. In season or weekends it would be wise to have a reservation. The marinara is to die for as are the garlic knots. I had the steak and cheese sandwich and it was huge! I ate half and was done! Benny and his family do a great job, Go I think you will enjoy yourself...

The restaurant is too hot and miserably uncomfortable. We would actually consider the hot environment to be a health risk. Our table ordered soup, three different Italian pasta dishes and a pizza. The soup was mushy and soggy. The pasta dishes were overall average with two tasting good and one tasting poorly. The pizza was dry, over baked and without flavor. We had tried the pizza at Bada Bing once previously and were similarly disappointed. Shame on us for repeating the experience. On the positive side, the waitresses were helpful and accommodating.

We will never return. We wasted our money on this visit. With all of the good Italian restaurants in Venice we shall never again waste our time and money at Bada Bing. This was our worst Italian dinning experience in Venice.

Yum, Yum, Yum! The portions are large and very tasty. Benny is usually around to make sure everything is just right. Its family own and operated.

I have no real complaint with this place. It's small and when everything is working right the food and service are good. If it's not then expect an unsatisfactory experience. The restaurant service varies - if you get a family member, especially the younger brunette it will invariably be bad. While the chicken parm is good to excellent, the pasta is never drained properly so there is always a pool, albeit small, of water on the plate. The garlic knots , when made that day are exceptional. When not made that day they taste like hockey pucks. The on-family wait staff is exceptional. The owner seems to cater principally to regulars and since it only has eight tables or so, this makes sense - but its a little uncomfortable if you aren't one. Do understand the portions are large and you will be taking some home. The prices are reasonable. The pizza dough - in my opinion - is on the salty side, but that may be do to the sausage and other meant which are salty. All in all - not a bad place, but there are better.

This was a nightmare for many reasons...We chose this place for italian cuisine cause it was listed a a participant in our dining club and cause of the 4star rating google supposedly gave it. We had the baked ziti and lasagne and both were watery and flavorless. They even managed to ruin the soup course. I will say the waitress Sara was pleasant and the ONLY positive part of the experience. Bottom line...don't waste your time, money, or calories.
