We had pesce antipasto, the spaghetti with pesce and a salad. Everything was delicious. Nice stop and recommended by our tour guide.

Went here a few days ago - like others we walked into the square and didn't realise until we had sat down that there were in facet 2 separate restaurants. However we were only looking for appetisers and a pasta dish so figured it would be fine - and it was. In fact I was quite shocked to see some... More

This is a terrible restaurant that you must avoid. I came with 7 other people, and all of us were starving. Suddenly, we found two outdoor pieces of land full of tables and chairs, which we assumed to be the same restaurant. It wasn't until we sat down and ordered when we found out our food was coming from a... More

My wife and I visited this restaurant March 23, 2015 and ordered Lasagne. When the food arrived it was just an insipid looking wedge on the plate with no garnish whatsoever. Also there was none of the usual bechamel sauce and bolognese oozing from it, in fact it resembled a block of dog meat!To make things worse when I ate... More

Ok. We didn't consult trip advisor and we finished in this restaurant. Food was below average very quick was made and I think it was like when you buy in a market packed and ready for cooking just put some oil and go. Wine was domestic but poor quality. Prices are too expensive for super market bad cuisine.

We first arrived at the restaurant at about 4 in the afternoon and asked if it was okay for us just to have drinks and the waiter said fine and took our order. Next thing we can hear the manager ( an unbelievably rude and aggressive man who mimiced the way we spoke and made sarcastic comments abotu us) yelling... More

We had an evening meal here during our recent trip to Venice and did not feel enthralled by this restaurant, we had what they call the Tourist Menu for €27 each, good choice with about five starters, six mains but only fruit, chees or coffee for desert. I had soup that was very good and my wife had Raviolli with... More

I gave this place a bad review two years ago. I looked at it again this Christmas. They are still lying about being in guide books - they have guide book notices - especially Le Routard prominently displayed. They are not recommended by anyone. They also try to put their tables across the front of the next establishment to confuse... More

Touristy (even for Venice), pushy staff, overpriced. I can't tell you anything about the food, we just stopped for Prosecco and snacks, but that set us back €25 for 3 people. We should have known better, but we were hot and tired and ready to sit down, so our mistake.

Keep walking when they try to entice you in. Their specials were overpriced. One was a pasta with "lobster." The only lobster that was on the plate was the tail shell. Not impressed. There were plenty of better options in the city, this one was disappointing.
