Although the food was very good, the service was slow resulting in the rating. We went the day after Valentine's Day expecting to be able to get seated without a reservation which we did but the time from entering to leaving was two hours, too long on a night that there were empty tables. Additionally, we were seated at a... More

On Tuesday nights the local jazz club holds their weekly informal performances that feature experienced musicians, either professional or amateur. You need to get there early, like at 5:30, to get a good table, and it lasts until 8:30. You need to call ahead for a reservation for jazz night because it gets pretty crowded. The dinner menu is varied,... More

The celebration of my husbands surprise 65th birthday with 33 attendees was a great night. The restaurant was very chaotic and didn't have the best of service as they didn't have enough staff to cope with Valentine's Day and our party. Service was very slow and our friends had to wait a long time to be served. Tuesday's is their... More

This was the worst service I have experienced in a long time. First table to be seated. Long before 10 others. Last to be served. Limited dinner menu should have meant faster service. No way! Homemade meal ..was served cold. How? Sent back and was returned 5 minutes later. Had been microwaved! Luke warm in center and blazing hot on... More

Nice decor. Waitress, when around, was very friendly. Food.... meatballs had a very strange chew to them. Kinda like over cooked calamari and flavor was non-descriptive. Pasta sauce was also very non-descriptive. Sweet with very little seasoning except what tasted like lots of basil. Kinda like thick tomato soup - mid-west, Nebraska like. When the food came out, a wait,... More

A true testament on how terrible service can ruin a great meal!! We have been to this restaurant several times and the food is always very very good. We are residents of Venice and it's hard to find a place that serves delicious food consistently. It took our waitress Marianne about 10 minutes to greet us. When she came over... More

This is not our first time here. Went on a busy Wednesday evening around 6:30. There are two areas-dining area plus food bar like area, plus another bar/nightclub type area with jazz almost every night. We sat in dining area. Service was extremely slow. Took 1 hour to get our pizza. Our server was apologetic. Said there was a new... More
