Cafe and Restaurants near hotel
Wife and I sat down, ordered a 65$(euro) bottle of wine, and were in the process of going through their 9 page menu to find an appetizer or something that looked good. We decided against lunch and to settle on just the app. The waiter came over from the second we sat down and like four more times within a couple minutes to see what we wanted. We initially ordered the wine thinking that would buy us more time. He comes back three times, and we're still looking. Mind you, this is all in about three minutes.
Finally partly because we felt rushed and partly because we thought an appetizer would be sufficient, we said no thank you on the lunch you are so desperately trying to force us to buy, we'll just have the bottle of wine and appetizer.
Next thing we know, he snatches the menus, and says, no, no drink without lunch. Lol.
I don't care what country you're in. If you have five empty tables, and nobody waiting to sit in them, you don't take money back out of your own pocket as a small business.
I read all these reviews about people complaining about bad service. This wasn't a case of a language barrier or anything. Most restaurants servers don't check on you very often in Italy because they want you to sit and wait and enjoy each course. This wasn't that. It was just pure stupidity. Our first bottle of wine plus an app probably would have netted them 75 euros. Instead they have an empty table and a one star review. Get with the times or get left behind. The vast majority of the income for restaurants and shops in Venice is now tourism. Wake up or get left behind.
Shell crabs are good, stuffed revioli is good
However, the lamb was not good at all and was cold?!! Not cooked to order and the orange sauce was overwhelming.
The dessert was ok.
I wouldn't consider this restaurant (bistro) as "Michelin Star" as they claim; not even close.
