Visited here twice whilst on holiday in Venice, both for dinner. Ate the spaghetti carbonara one night and pizza another! The food was amazing, the service was exceptional and with this restaurant being right on the sea front.. the views are breathtaking!

Restorante prinipesso is the hotel restaurant. Was worst service possible. Rude, forgot meal, shoved things on table. When I approached the hotel manager about their restaurant they could not care. Would never stay in a hotel with such a bad attitude.
