“Do not eat here”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

This place might be OK for a quick drink, but the food is little more than reheated frozen meals prepared in a microwave in the back. I would avoid eating here at all costs, especially given the many other options nearby.

“A welcome seat in the shade”
Reviewed 9 September 2012 via mobile

The day we walked around Venice it was around 40C so finding spots of shade was a task as they were all full! We saw the tables under the awning and I just insisted on sitting down and ordering a LARGE Peroni. The staff were all young Japanese girls. The beer was fine and best of all cold;there was a group of Italian studenty types on the next table having an animated conversation which made it feel very local ( as in not so touristy). we were not rushed to finish and there is a loo so you can knock
€2 per person off the bill saved from the public loos. Interesting bit of graffiti / street art on the wall.

Reading the earlier reviews, it looks like this bar/restaurant has changed hands.

Four of us stopped for a drink, two draught beers & 1/2 litre of white wine. My mate who knows his beers took the beers back because they were not up to scratch and changed them to Peronis, with the barman still telling him that the beer was OK. The Peroni was OK.

Unfortunately the white wine was undrinkable....we tried adding ice because it wasn't chilled enough, but to no avail and most of it was left.

When presented with the bill, it included the first two beers that had been sent back.

Needless to say we didn't pay for them, but it caused a very unpleasant situation, in an otherwise fantastic trip to Venice.

Didn't eat there.....maybe that's OK ????!!!!...but places do need half-decent house wine.

“Good for people watching”
Reviewed 13 December 2011

We visited this pub on several occasions during our stay in Venice. It was nice to get a drink and sit outside and people-watch. The drinks are varied and the prices are fairly reasonable.

“A friendly place to get a late drink”
Reviewed 7 November 2011

Edward the Bar manager is a nice Albanian guy who speaks excellent english. Beer of good quality with the odd free nibble thrown in.
