We apologise for being late with this review but due to a close family bereavement some reviews were overlooked. We had lunch at this restaurant outside before going to see the Ringling house. Lunch was very simple but it was well cooked and very tasty. They were extremely busy but the service held up thanks to the assistance of our server Helen. We had a tuna Nicoise and two stacked Caesar salads as well as a bottle of white wine. It came to $25 per head without a tip.

This restaurant is extremely busy and if you want to avoid the queues then make sure you book in advance.

Antipasto was way beyond what we expected. Ravioli, both pasta and sauce, were delicious. Everything was very fresh. Gina was an excellent waitress - served each item with great tempo - friendly and informative without being trying to join our party. Highly recommend the restaurant and Gina.

We ate outside on the patio and had a beautiful view of the gardens. We had lunch here after seeing the Circus revue at the theatre. The salads were delicious salads as was the sandwich of the day. We were served hot and tasty bread while we waited for our meals to be served. We then went to the Circus Museum which was amazing. Once again, a great day at Ringling!!!

We've been to Treviso quite a few times before and have enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. Last week we went there on a Thursday night. The restaurant was busy but not packed. Our server seemed to be in rush. We speculated that at the rate he was going, the 3 course dinner with a bottle of wine might barely last 1/2 hour. It wasn't that bad. We were out in 50 minutes. The steak was underdone (they did fix it) and the mahi-mahi was very dry. We were terribly disappointed with the meal and the service. Hopefully, it was an aberration!

Before the tour my friends and I decided lunch, popped in and requested dining inside which caused a slight problem since the restaurant was preparing for a very large group of out of towners, however the staff went above and beyond finding us a lovely booth for five and catered to us like we were queens. The menu was extensive and the food was prepared beautifully and melted in our mouths. We were more than pleasantly surprised how wonderful everything was, since we had all eaten at various museum type restaurants in the past and well the food is usually just so so. We are making plans to go back again with our spouses for a dinner special which I also hear is wonderful.
