We've visited Ponte Arcari on a Friday evening and, although we had reservations, our table wasn't ready. The waiter was borderline rude and also interrupted us multiple times to enumerate dishes that were not on the menu (and, again, we were not even at the...More

Really good attitude, really good location, and really really good food in very hearty portions. Service is a bit erratic, but ultimately it does add to the charm. Food is the classic Italian fare, and done well. Wine is a limited range, but food quality...More

We were staying at the NH Schiller and were walking the canals, looking for a late dinner spot, when we came across this place. There was a wait so they offered us a spot at a table across the street by the canal where we...More

We were able to sit at a table along the canal, with the sunset, it was perfect ! We ordered saltinbocca veal and the truffle+taleggio meat meal, along with the house wine. Everything tasted great and the prices were totally ok. I think we paid...More
