Having eaten at this restaurant and tasted the delicious food, we couldn't understand why the restaurant was so completely empty. It's a very huge venue, sort of unnecessarily big and is really decorated nicely. Staff are friendly and welcoming. The food is fresh, tasty and arrives in considerably quick time. It the perfect venue for a special celebration / private... More

The place may not very known being located inside a hotel.. but it is no doubt one of the very few good Italian restaurants in town.. Its menu is rich from starters, to Salads, to Pasta, Pizzas, Seafood Exotic platters, Main dishes and dessert.. But what makes it even more exquisite is that the Chef is always ready to serve...

Beautiful Restaurant, elegant setup and professional staff. The food was good and the presentation even better. The entertainment was The a pleasant surprise. Every Saturday, they have music and an excellent singer, she performs songs in Italian, Arabic, French and English. I definitely recommend this restaurant.

It's been 8 years I go there and every time my friends ask my opinion for a lovely celebration I recommend it to them among my top list and never regret.. They do it very professionally! Once we lost a valuable necklace and the staff were super professional to help us find it!

I went there to celebrate my mom's birthday on a Saturday. The food was great ( we tried their seafood formule it was very good and the portions were generous). The service was great! This is how it should be! There was live music which made the evening even nicer. Keep it up!

Loved the food..tried some starters and the main dishes as well were very delicious. Was there on a Saturday evening and the ambiance was amazing. Try to be there after 9:30pm if you want to enjoy the live performance.

we have been twice to Venezia, because the "risotto ai funghi" we chose the first evening was very good. Unfortunately, the second day, the "gnocchi" were nothin special. Good wine, very friendly staff, good quality of the raw material. But if you are looking for the italian soul, you won't find it.
