We had a lovely meal here 3 years ago and decided to go back for our wedding anniversary.
We didn’t get off to a good start with the head waiter. Supercilious. I asked what the house wine was. They don’t do one. Ok. What do you recommend? He points to the wine at 180€. Now is that taking the p…s?
I order the steak medium. I got a raw and very poor quality cut of meat that should have been in a casserole.Really tough. My wife and sister in law ordered the lamb cutlets, pink please. They were way overdone and minuscule.
The green salad consisted of a few leaves that came straight from the Spar supermarket.
We cancelled the meal and paid 56€ euros for a really shabby meal.Reading the reviews then obviously you had to be lucky.
We had an excellent bag of chips at McDonalds so not all bad news.
I was unable to give it a star rating for some reason. Definitely ONE STAR ON ALL ŷCOUNTS

We had a delicious meal on our last night in Venezia here. The fish of the day per due was great and the waitress deboned it right in front of us which was very entertaining! Everything was excellent and they treated us with dessert wine at the end. We loved the campo do S. Giacomo and eating dinner outside here was a great way to people watch. This was our most expensive dinner our whole trip but was a nice treat to ourselves!

Nice location at a less touristic place. With playing children and an authentic atmosphere. Service was very friendly, we had a reservation and were at no point urged to hurry -although the single courses came quite fast. In the beginning, the waiter forgot our aperitives, but he felt obviously uncomfortable about that.
The wine we ordered (30 €) was „out“ and they offered one for 40 €. The wine was nice.
The food was fine and delicious. We have no reason to complain.
Thus, all in all it was a nice and comfortable dinner and evening. Until the bill came. Service was NOT included and we were not aware of this. And it‘s balanced with 12% of the total. Which is not a minor amount when you have 3 courses.
Be aware of that and you will have a fine dinner.
