    Amazing place. Deserves at least one Michelin star if not more. The risotto cooking was absolutely perfect. The amuse-bouche left us with no voices. What to say about the Turbot...and its gyoza, just fabulous. Thank you this incredible moment. Kids were welcomed and would like to come back asap

    This was one of the finest food experiences we have ever had. We had the 5 course fish taster menu with associated wine for each course. The food was put of this world and the wines suited each course superbly. The staff were all fantastic and the atmosphere gorgeous and welcoming. The open kitchen allowed you to view the work in progress and lovely to meet the head chef afterwards. If you want to treat yourselves this is the place to go. Bravo !

    Very friendly and professional staff; super tasty food! They only serve predefined menues but they are really worth a try! There‘s also a surprise menu, but I wasn‘t „brave“ enough to go for it :)

    If you like fine dining this restaurant is definitely for you. It is pricey but it’s worth every penny. It has not been open long. It is small and personal with a great ambience. The staff are simply brilliant and the chefs extremely talented. Every plate that came up was like a piece of art. This is one culinary experience I will never forget. Would return in a heartbeat.

    The food was excellent - the construction and testes of the Serendipity tasting menu was Michelin star. The service was friendly and professional - serving of the food ** rating, Warm and informed. Semilier was Informative and enthused - promptness of wine/drinks not quite at the level of the food. This is constructive feedback - as we had the most wonderful evening with fantastic food.

    All was said before already. It is a must when in Venice and you appreciate food. Amazing service with open air, atmosphere felt warm and friendly. Sorry had to put 120chars but honestly worth a flight this place.

    Almost perfect! The most amazing dinner in Venice! After visiting the 2* Glam the night before, I was blown away by the food and service here and overall had a better experience. Highly recommended!!! The staff are passionately service oriented and some of the dishes were simply genius in construction, presentation and of course taste. The best value for money upper class meal I had in a long time.

    Absolutely outstanding. Go before it gets its Michelin star which will surely be soon. Beautiful thoughtful food and excellent wine pairings. Our best meal in Venice.

    Ein sehr schönes Lokal mit perfektem Service. Ein grandioses Menü, das mit viel Liebe zum Detail angerichtet wurde und bei dem jeder Bissen eine Offenbarung war. Die zu jedem Gang ausgeschenkten Weine waren ein Fest für sich. A very nice place with perfect service. The grandiose menu was prepared with great attention to detail. Every bite was a revelation. The wines served with each course were a celebration in themselves.

    Overall a very pleasant dining experience with friendly and able service. We had the main 5 course tasting menu with matching wine and cocktail pairings. The Amuse Bouche were very creatively served and great tasting, really capturing the essence of the courses to come. The 5 courses were a unique voyage through classic Venetian ingredients, elegantly plated and well constructed flavours on the whole. That being said, some elements of some of the courses fell a touch short. The best example of this is from the 3rd course, which was a pasta dish with sardines, where the sauce just fell a little flat, lacking the intensity of flavour which the dish called for in my opinion. In itself this wouldn't be a "problem", but the pricing puts the restaurant in competition with other tasting menus in the Michelin Guide, and in my experience of such menus, this was very close to nearly being there, but not quite. Which perhaps explains its absence from the guide. That being said, I am not a guide inspector or a food critic. The wine and cocktail pairings were great, as one would expect the wines were entirely Italian with many from the regions surrounding Veneto as well as Veneto itself. Two special mentions in terms of the pairings were the Cocktail pairing, which in our case was a dry gin martini, paired with a pasta dish. It was a surprise to receive such a simple, classic cocktail with our meal, but it worked very well. Secondly, the wine pairings aren't preselected and are left to the judgement of the staff depending on each guest's preference. In our case, this let our waiter choose a more experimental pairing with our final course, which was a hit. Side note: the glass and tableware were stunning, often handmade pieces. Really excellent, and contributed to the beautiful presentation. Overall the service was slick, friendly and very professional. Each dish was presented and described competently, water was topped up diligently, and as previously mentioned, the wine pairings were excellent. The ONE blip in the service was with the bread. The bread was finished shortly before service to be served warm, and from the top of the bread it was clear that one side of the loaf had just caught slightly. The charred flavour from the bread really didn't marry well with the delicate flavours of the seafood. When we asked if we could get a replacement, we were told that the colour of the bread was to do with the flour used (it looked like a Rye Sourdough or similar), which while generally true in terms of the colour of the loaf, did not account for the darker colour on one side of the top of the loaf. Not wanting to argue over the bread and spoil an otherwise lovely meal, we said no more and the waiter left. After eating the non-burnt side of the bread we moved the remainder to the edge of the table to make room. A few minutes later the waiter came and changed the bread, unsurprisingly, this one was uniform in colour and delicious. When you are paying 100€+ per head for food, there is simply no point in arguing over the bread. Unfortunately it meant that such a tiny and petty issue left a somewhat sour taste behind. The restaurant is in a great location, we had a table in the Garden, overlooking a canal on a quiet side street. The table settings were nice, but a small comment is that the chairs were made of a woven material, which after sitting in for a nice meal left a not so lovely imprint on our legs. I'm sure if we had asked, they would have offered a cushion or similar. Finally I think the garden could have used a little more green, to make it feel more private and comfortable. I would recommend visiting, but going for the weekday lunch menu which is a bit better value for money, and would still give you the opportunity to enjoy many of the highlights the restaurant offers.
