Having paid a large amount for this surprise special set menu in our last night in Venice. For the first course we were treated with...plain spaghetti...literally no sauce, nothing but plain pasta In a bowl...some of us actually started laughing, where we were invited to...add on olive oil ourselves if we wanted something more! The wait staff were unbelievably rude, disinterested, and unwilling to listen to any issues that we were having. The main meal was not as bad, a beef stroganoff, but dessert was an apple pie that was still frozen on the inside. I would avoid this place at all costs - for a city known for hospitality and food, it failed abysmally in both of these areas. It really was almost comical the food we were served and the way we were treated.More

I try to only ever leave good reviews. But this was absolutely awful! Very poor across the board. Our most disappointing part of a trip to Venice. A complete waste of money. The service was poor. Our waiters were uninterested and impossible to get their...attention. Worst of all was the food. Lukewarm and lacking flavour. The dessert (apple tart) was worse than a frozen supermarket bought dessert. Stay away!More

We have been there twice. Soups are so so, so is pasta. Fish is good. Atmosphere is mediocre, staff is not friendly. Prices are too high for restaurant of this level.

Spent the afternoon walking in the Dosoduro area of Venice , we had walkout to Gugenhiem and Basilca Santa Maria , on our way back we stop Ristorante Cant. Storico . The restaurant is located on small canal , outside tables cover with awnings with...light . Really nice atmosphere ! Service was great , we were quickly seated and order wine and drinks . For dinner , we had Clam linguini , Shrimp w/pasta with tomato's and ravioli . The food was excellent , lots of nice wine and great service made for great dining experience . Definitely would go back , it take effort to find but well worth the walk Restaurant is located 2 doors down from Hotel AmericanMore

We had a short stay in Venice and our hotel booked a table for us at this restaurant early as we were quite hungry - arrived and they had no idea of our reservation but were kind enough to seat us. The waitress was so...lovely and made us feel welcome immediately. We ordered the ravioli and beef fillet and it didn't disappoint. Yes it is a little pricier than your standard Venice restaurant but we were happy with what we received and felt it matched in value. Would come again!More

Nice location right on a small canal. A bit formal and a little pricey. I had delicious liver and onions, a Venetian specialty.

We had a saffron pasta and a squid ink pasta and honestly both were so bland you could hardly taste the difference between the two (hard to imagine given the flavours, but I kid you not!). The price is also quite high--over fifty euro for...still water and two pasta dishes for lunch. We were disappointed we ate here because there is so much amazing food in Venice, and for this price point, you can really do better. But, the view on the side of a quaint canal and the proximity to the Guggenheim makes it a convenient lunch stop. Just beware that your tastebuds will be bored. Also the service was horrifically slow, so do not sit down here if you aren't up for lunch to take more than an hour.More

Excellent seafood, lovely view, and our waiter was fantastic. He recommended a Prosecco that was the best I've ever had.

This restaurant, by the side of a canal, was really nice, but quite expensive, even for Venice. The food selection was reasonable, and the service was good.

We stayed at the hotel next door and ate at this restaurant 3 nights...I know crazy but we had lunch out at different restaurants but after a full day of sightseeing and walking we were tired so it was nice to be close to home....Every dish wa great, awesome wine choices. And the staff was wonderful. We thought the prices were great.More

Should not be a problem, usually we try and sit outside on the canal. Adam the owner or Luigi always manages to find you a table. If you are wandering around during the day, just stop in and make a reservation for the... More
