I was a bit hesitant about revealing the wonders of this iconic restaurant in Venice because it's already busy enough but what the heck, I'm trying to help my fellow travelers. This trattoria is tucked away in a small ally, just beneath the famous Rialto...More

This restaurant is near the Rialto bridge, so you can't expect a "locals only" atmosphere. However, our experience was very nice. The restaurant was packed at 9:00pm with international tourists and Italians. We had seafood, pasta and wine. Everything was tasty and of good quality....More

其实如果不发生什么,我觉得可能我都不会写这评论。我无法推荐任何人来这间餐厅,换句话说就是请远离这家餐厅,因为它毁了我对它的期待。这是我第一次一个人来威尼斯,看到这家号称开了很久的店,进去所有waiter都是给人冷漠的感觉,菜单随便一扔,餐布也随便一扔,我就感觉有什么不对。结果更糟糕的事情发生了,当我check的时候,没人理,来了一个高个子,当我把信用卡给他的时候,他从兜里准备拿出笔给我签字,但是我和他四目相对时发现他的眼神并不是在看我,而是在看我的头,下一秒他手里的笔就非常精准的扔到了我的头上,当然他会说抱歉,但是他准备投射那只笔的犹豫时,就已经看穿这个故意的行为了。刷完卡以后他就吹着口哨离开了,其实我不生气,因为这种小家子气的行为就像小孩开玩笑一样,他们整个餐厅默认这种行为,也就是说这家号称开了很久的餐厅其实就是小孩,幼稚,我仿佛觉得他们企图激怒我让我写下这篇评论,他们做到了后者,并且非常成功的让我写了这么多。 我是第一次来威尼斯,也是第一次来这里吃饭,面对着一整家餐厅的服务员,这场战役注定失败,但是还好有tripadvisor这个平台,让我把想说的说出来。可能是我好欺负,也可能因为我是亚洲人,总之他们用一个符合餐厅服务员去表达不屑或者鄙视的行为,让我觉得我没有资格去说他们什么,这次向我扔笔,下次可能就是其他人,最有可能的就是亚洲人,Be careful my friends, they hate us very real, Don't let them ruin your memories in Venice! 我想威尼斯有好的餐厅,意大利也有好的餐厅,但就有一些汤里的老鼠屎,而且还是陈年老鼠屎。这些餐厅或者建筑并不是他们建的,而是传承下来的,所以我觉得他们不能为此而感到自豪,自豪的应该是他们有优秀的美食与服务,然而现在他们的所作所为其实是一种傲慢的表现,如果你们不喜欢亚洲人,那请在门口标注明显一点:“我们不欢迎亚洲人!”那我们也会自觉的离开,并且理这里远远的。又或是只针对一个人来并且语言不太好的客人,那也请写上“只允许本地多人进来!”但请不要用一些小动作去打扰客人,毕竟你们不是坐在餐桌上的那个人。 不过你要是作为客人真的好奇这家店是什么样的,请你带好头盔,或者带一只可以精准扔到别人头上的笔,在结账的时候可以名正言顺的打一架,看看谁是那个爱决斗的菲利斯·卡瓦洛蒂。

I’m disappointed enough with the bad surprise “service charge“ (in addition to the coperto) that I downloaded TripAdvisor app to write this review. Tonight’s food—granseola, antipasto misto, risotto di pesce, and a fried fish—was tasty like I remembered from five years ago. The service was...More

San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the
Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six
sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest
neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the
markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops
display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San
Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi)
stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San

Sorry for the late response, I really don't know the prices, I'm sure they are adjusted according to the season... Hope you had a great meal if you went.
