    As a visitor on the first night of Italy shutting everything down due to coronovirus, we were pleased to get a table here, we were the only customers but despite this we enjoyed excellent food, wine and service again. We gad the snails and fried zucchini to start- lovely, followed by the best risotto I have tried .

    Such a good dining experience - great food, good service and lovely ambience. One of our party of four is a vegan and there was enough of a good choice clearly sign posted on the varied a la carte menu. By contrast, I like steak tartare and eat it often - this was the best I’ve ever had, prepared at the table by a true expert - delicious. Overall we all really enjoyed the food and had a great evening - thank you Ai Gondolieri !

    Excellent food! Impeccable service ! Nice settings. Gréât restaurant. Rather expensive though. Good wines as well. Perfect Demi portions options.

    The service was excellent and the food was good not great. The restaurant was vastly overpriced for the quality of the food. Definitely a tourist trap. Can do much better in terms of cost and food at some of the smaller restaurants

    Great food and great service! Went back to my group and bragged about it! A bit challenging getting there, but well worth it! Will definitely return!

    Really good food, everything was delicious, very cozy. It is a must try in Venice. The tasting menu is amazing, but you need to go with a lot of space because it is a lot of food.

    We had lunch at Ai Gondolieri, and it was a lovely experience from start to finish. We arrived somewhat early and entered through the bar which had a warm, welcoming feeling. The dining room was elegant, and they had a very nice table waiting for us. The service was professional but not stuffy, and the food was delicious. We would definitely return.

    Cosy restaurant with correct food, a little bit overprized for what it offers. Had very, very small meat portion as main course.

    Expect surprise additional charges at the end of the meal. It took them 40 minutes to serve pasta even though the restaurant was half empty. Nice location and atmosphere.

    The food was really good and I'd gladly eat there again. Though, the little round pieces of bread they give you are evil -- they're really tasty and bite-size -- I was tossing them into my mouth like popcorn. We did not try the risotto, but it was brought out in a large bread bowl for a neighboring table and smelled really aromatic, so it's on our list of things to try for next time. The staff was pretty nice, however service was a bit slower than I would have liked (though that could just be a cultural thing). Unfortunately, it got somewhat warm in the restaurant due to lack of air flow from the windows being closed, and there were some obnoxious tourists at two of the tables, which made the experience slightly less enjoyable than it could have been. That being said, we were very happy with our food and would go again.

    Superb food served by a delightful and attentive staff. We booked it for lunch and wished we had saved it for dinner. Highly recommended.

    For the most part we enjoyed our experience. The food was very good except for the frozen spinach I received with my entree. But the waiter had an attitude the entire time we were there and kept talking under his breath in Italian after he would leave our table. Although the bar tender/helper was excellent and was very friendly. We asked the waiter for some ice as the bottle of still water was not cold and he never brought it out. We asked the bartender for it and she brought it right away. The table next to us had a large party and was leaving when we arrived but they never cleared it and was never reset the entire time we were there for two hours. It was dirty and was an eye sore. It was very quiet and was devoid of any charisma. Saying all that I would still recommend this place for a nice meal.

    This is a unique place ! It is completely amazing to see the service that is provided and the quality of the food . Lead by the amazing maitre d and his team, you feel like you are the only one in the restaurant! They go above and beyond to attend you. In unison with this service, the chef provides dishes full of taste! I enjoyed a delicious appetizer of escargots but my main entree of beef with porcini mushrooms and red wine sauce was delectable! The atmosphere is cozy and warm! I truly enjoyed this experience!
