“Great lunch near the piazza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013 via mobile

I am surprise to see a lot of bad review of this restaurant. My family and I ate here for lunch on November 29, 2013 and we had a nice lunch. I ordered aglio olio, calamari, lasagna, penne, salami, bruschetta and tiramisu. Our bill came to €115. The serving size is generous, except the tiramisu. The food is delicious and the staff are friendly. I recommend this restaurant.

“Rip off. Never go to this place”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

This restaurant is very close to San Marco square. With lots of tourists passing by, it is easy for them attract customers and rip them off .

We reached san marco around 12.00 noon and after we had our time at the square we wanted to have food at a place nearby to continue our tour. so we ended up in this place.

The food was awful. Please NEVER BUY THEIR SEA FOOD MIX GRILL . We had great expectations for food in venice, but these guys spoiled our day.

Moreover they charged a cover charge of 2.50 (each) and service 12% which is unheard off. We paid around 48 Euro for this alone.

The service was very poor, the waiters were miserable, Especially the chinese lady who served us.

Like all other reviews , please do not go to this place. Its a rip off There are much better restaurants with better food and waiters in Venice.

“worst in Italy”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2013

We were in Italy for 1 month and this was the worst food and service the entire month. The pasta with sause supposedly was so dry we had to put olive oil on it to loosen up the pasta. The extra service charge and " 12% tax" is way out of line even for Venice. NEVER go there. when I complained and told them that I was going to post on this site, he just shrugged and said " go ahead-- it wont matter!!"

“Don't go here”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2013

Don't be fooled by the sign out the front saying no service charge, because the 'coperto' and 'servizo appear right there on the bill
The food was average at best the bruschetta cost more the pizza and the waiting staff were rude
Please don't go there and make sure you tell others not to as well

“Rip off, awful food, just dont go ”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2013 via mobile

The restaurant is very close to Piazza San Marco and therefore has lots of tourists passing by - making it easy to attract customers. As it was raining heavily we literally went here to shelter from the storm thinking it would be a good a good place to eat. We noticed a cover charge of 2.50 (each) and service 12% but expected this in venice - however this is NOT the case, further along there is no service charge. As a result we paid £5.90 service and 7.50 cover (they charged for our 3 year old who didnt eat).
The food was awful, the service was poor, the waiters were miserable. Like all other reviews state just don't go, there a better restaurants with better food and waiters who work hard for their money.
