It was a awful experience from the start to the end, bad food, awful wine and disturbing service: we even think they put something on the food because we complained... the waiters were rude from the beginning to the end, seems like that were not happy working there, when the food came, only the pasta from those who have complained...

With my picky young boys. We choose to eat here. The pizza was pretty good. Not the best but decent. My risotto was on point. So I can't complain.

It was an absolutely random choice, but the food they presented here was something out of this world (and definitely out of Italian cuisine how you know it). Looked like made by a child, they used weird decorations that at the least looked unprofessional. I don't complain about the flat (!!!) canneloni nor huge pieces of tomato and old chicory,... More

I was curious about this place, it's pretty crowded overall but some friends told me the staff was not so friendly. I was also curious about the Groupon booking, 11 euros for bruschetta plus any pizza (any from the real menu) and dessert, plus drink (beer or coke or similar) and water, an unbeatable price. I have to say both... More

Very ordinary atmosphere with poor quality pizza and with radio music (full of commercials) on the background. The service was careless. Bad restaurant experiences make me very bitter as I feel like I have just wasted not only my money but one of my few precious travel nights. Choose somewhere they actually care about what they serve.

We chose this restaurant as it was in a great location by the side of the Grande Canale and seemed to be pretty full, always a good sign? We were greeted by a rather brusque, non smiley lady who seemed to be the "boss." We did notice however, that she was like this with everyone who came in, so we... More

It was not bad but it was definately not the best pizza I ever had, for an Italian restaurant disappointed, there are a lot better places. Service ok but not great

The place is easily crowded, so it can be difficult to find a place. The pizza are nicely cooked and with a wide choice. There are a couple of nice Italian beers. The staff seem a bit overloaded and stressed though. The mozzata (500g of mozzarella) was quite disappointed, not really tasty.

This restaurant is well located along the canale grande and offers the possibility to eat on a nice terrasse. The employees were quite friendly but appeared stressed because of numerous clients to serve. The service was not very fast. We eated pizzas that were correct, and took some typical italian desserts that were good too. There was unfortunately no wine... More

I enjoyed here a nice dinner on the shores of Canal Grande. Food was quite good (I had a very particular pasta, I liked it), the choice of beers is too expensive in my opinion.
