We had a pizza each and a bottle of water, you are charged 12% table fee. Which is the same everywhere in Venice. The pizza's were okay. Nothing special. We had to ask for the bill several times as the staff seemed in interested. Basic price for Venice. Not great food.

DO NOT EAT HERE! When we walked by the restaurant one of the staff was fairly aggressive about getting us to sit down, ushered us inside to look at desserts and told us he had a table ready. We agreed to sit and when looking at the menu saw that the prices were high and the menu itself looked old, the food didn’t look great either. The waiter came by asking if we were ready to order and we asked for a minute. We were thinking that we didn’t want to stay, as the atmosphere felt very rushed and we thought they would try to push us to eat as quickly as possible. After giving us only 30 more seconds to look at the menu he asked us again if we were ready to order. We decided to leave and said that we were going to go so, at which point the waiter started shouting and cursing us as we walked out. Don’t eat here, go to Rossopomerdaro across the street!

Very pushy waiters! Want you in and out. Tiny macchiatos, more like espresso size. Don’t come here. Also they don’t accept credit cards for bills under 20€.

Venice is full of great places to eat and drink so you really don’t need to go to this terrible place.

Long story short the food is ok at best but the staff use every “tourist trap” trick in the book to over charge and bully you into paying for things you didn’t want.

We were followed down the street by a guy trying to get us in the place and we said we didn’t want food. He said it was fine to come in for just a drink. We gave in because it was hot and busy.

We ordered an Aperol Spritz and a glass of wine. They brought the spritz before telling us wine was only available in bottles.

We then realised the spritz didn’t have any prosecco in it, the staff didn’t seem to care.

I decided to have a pizza.

When the bill came they charged us 50% more for the pizza because there were two of us at the table.

They then added a “city tax”.

We queried both and the person taking the money got really angry and said “I know but the boss makes us do this, it is not our place we have to do what we are told” he referred to the guy outside who told us we could just have a drink as “the donkey”.

This is not the experience we have had anywhere else in Venice or in fact Italy, where I would rate 4+ every time.

Don’t go if you expect anything more than a basic meal. Not worth the price!!!!!! Do yourself a favor and walk somewhere else!
