Was their in August 2016. Food was pretty good but it was the service of a waiter named Shiful that made us enjoy the experience and come back. Please promote and reward him

Returning from a Mediterranean cruise, went into Venice for the day before our flight home. We were drawn to this restaurant by its location near the Rialto Bridge. A table was soon found for us with views of the bridge and the Grand Canal. The friendly waiter brought us complimentary aperitifs while we selected our meal. Decided to have pizzas and a glass of very drinkable rose wine, service was quick and efficient, price was very reasonable for Venice. Both pizzas were excellent and tasted even better due to the setting.

A group of four were seated near to us and the same waiter was very obliging and served them bruschetta, which wasn't actually om the menu - another example of good service All in all, a very pleasant end to our holiday.

Ristorante Florida is an average restaurant in one of the most romantic locations on Earth. This is waterfront dining in Venice! As others have said, the service and the food are sub par. I ordered a pasta with seafood meal, which was cooked well and tasted very good. My wife's order was a thinly sliced and breaded mystery meat that turned out as hard and tasteless as cardboard. The wine was excellent and, again, the views were dreamy.

Having asked for a table we were told by the host that we had to order 3 courses and a bottle wine, so we said no thanks we were not that hungry. Straight away it changed to two courses and a drink each. So we sit down and waited and after a while we get our drinks. Then we order food..... our order was not good enough, two courses means two main courses each. Who eats two main courses each ? So then we get the host back telling us quite rudely that she told us this. Nope. We left shortly after another table and a group of girls did not even get passed drinks. Nice location terrible policy and staff. I could understand if there were people queuing but given the position on the grand canal they where not and that says it all. It's 800 and something on trip advisor for a reason. !

The restaurant is near the Rialto Bridge and alongside the Grand Canal so fantastic location although you do pay a little for the privilege but well worth it.

Sea food was fantastic, my daughter had a frutti di mare linguine which was really tasty and packed with sea food, and I had grilled sea bass, lobster chosen from their live tank and king prawns, all cooked to perfection.

Very good service, especially compared with the lacklustre service experienced elsewhere, friendly waiters and a good all round meal and experience.

If you are visiting I would definitely recommend you try this place - there are cheaper restaurants but probably not when combined with location and this was one of the best meals we had while in Venice.
