This restaurant is tucked one street back from Piazza San Marco and offers a good value 2 course lunch. The food was good but the service could have been much better

The only good thing worth this place is the location and the free wifi. The food is on par with highway diners.

We went in there seeing the menu and BOLD print saying that there was no cover or service charge. Service and attitude of the staff was poor. Food was mediocre at best. Once we got the bill, They had charged us service at 12% plus cover charge. Upon asking we were told very rudely that the no service charge was only for the promotional menu and then the waiter proceeded to show us a tiny print on the bottom of the menu listed as a food item was the cover charge of 2.50 per person and service charge. He said that it is not their problem if only the promotion is in bold print and that there is no pint in arguing over this. So we paid the almost 100 euro bill in protest and walked out feeling ripped off and cheated.
This restaurant does the classic bait and switch on tourists and knows that no one is coming back once they have eaten there so they don't give a damn. Staff is rude if questioned for anything. A small bottle of water cists 4.50 euro. That is the most we saw anywhere in Italy let alone Venice. It would be okay for them to charge the cover if they also list it alongside the other bold print but they cheat and give you okay food. Would never recommend it to anyone. Find another place please and don't waste your money here. I cannot give it even one star.

We went into this restaurant only because we were too tired to look around. However we regreted the moment we took order cuz the waitress seemed unhappy and was being impolite to us. Then the chicken pizza turned out to be the worst we have ever had, it was dry and tastless. The worst thing was the bill. We've only ordered two ordinary pizza and a glass of water but it cost us ?36.8!!! They charged us 12% service charge and on top of that ?5 cover charge!!! It was obviously unreasonable but the waiter insisted and there was no point to argue with them. I just want to warn everybody to avoid this restaurant forever!

As simple as: they either change everything (management, waiters, recipes, etc) or it will at some point bankrupt. Very bad service by gipsies and awful (yep!) italian ??? Pizza!
