It was a happy accident to enjoy the service of Christian with pizza and fruit tart. Stupendous service and decor to match the food.

Slow service, food was actually pretty bad. The worst we had in Italy. Ordered a beef filet medium, came pretty much uncooked fully red and bloody. My wife ordered a Bologna and it was disgusting.

The restaurant is part of the Savoia & Jolanda hotel which is a few small bridges to San Marco. Loved the people watching sipping a fantastic Aperol spritz and having a caprese with buffalo mozzarella that melts in your mouth. The staff is wonderful!
