We were here for a friend's birthday dinner. The food was good, but not outstanding. The views of the bridge and the canal were great. That is the only reason for two stars. As we settled our bill and prepared to leave, the waiter, who...More

Pretty view, looks right at the Grand Canal and Rialto Bridge. The food was good, but the prices seemed very high and the service indifferent. There are so many good restaurants to try, this one can be left for (much) later!More

Right by the water. Even though this is tourist trap area the food was surprisingly very good. Maybe a little pricier because of the area but the food was good

The restaurant is well situated near to the canale grande. As the restaurant is on the top price level we took pizzas which are good to pay (10 euros each). Unfortunately those pizzas and lasagne haven’t been that large. Additional nally the waiter wasn’t that...More
