The lovely island of Murano offered a lot of sights and surprises and we count this restaurant as one of them. The chalkboard screamed an affordable set meal promotion and looked very inviting. However, as we could not stomach a huge meal, we gave it a pass. Lunch was our usual vegetable soup, pasta with tomatoes and chicken chop. All... More

We were here to visit Burano briefly after being recommended to eat here rather than stay on Murano, the no.1 choice was closed being a Monday and after walking around and feeling rather hungry we chose here simply because it came across friendly and they had a €20 set lunch menu which ticked the box...and we could feed our young...

On the main street of Burano. My wife wanted ham and melon and this was one of the few places offering it. Not enough staff so slow service, although food good when it arrived but quite expensive.

I was ready to write a "not so great review" as many in our party ordered a first and second course. The time between courses was almost 45 minutes. I was just about to ask for the bill when it arrived. Next the bill shows with $2.5 per head charge and 15% gratuity. Doesn't sound awful in the states but... More

在威尼斯-彩虹岛的旅程一直很开心,可惜没有吃到principe家的墨鱼面(关门),最后在它家旁边那家吃的,结账的时候居然加了座位费后还加收了15%的服务费(并没有提前告知),生活在意大利第一次在意大利一个小饭店发现要收这么高的服务费,服务态度还不好,老忘记我们!更可气的是我给了100€结账居然只找了我40.5€真的很坑!最后发现我拍照,把我叫回去说我们的菜单上有写需要服务费(在menu的右下角小小一个)!并且重新给我打了一张正规结账单!并要收回一开始的账单!(单张的是最开始的)在此告诫大家来这家餐馆吃饭要注意啦!去principe家时不要认错到这家!服务态度不好的餐馆地址(add): Via San Mauro, 397, Burano, Italy 。 I had been so happy during the journey to Burano in Venice. Unfortunately, I could not enjoy the popular squid ink pasta in Principe; instead, I chose to dine in the restaurant nearby. When we checked the bill, besides the table fee, we were charged extra 15% service fee without given notice... More

We were on Burano off hours for meals (around 3:30) and wanted to sit down and have a Coke to drink. We ran into this place and sat down. We figured that having a Coke might be pricey, but had no idea. We sat down outside and ordered 2 Cokes. After about 5 minutes, I ran into the store next... More

Cover charge fee, service fee, and pricey food without the benefit of being excellent. The food wasn't terrible, it was just ok. The tourist menu is a better value than the a la carte options. I'd skip and go to Rivarosa on the other corner.

Meal ok but nothing special. Don't eat there it is too much expensive and quality price ratio is not good at all. 15% for the service for NO SERVICE AT ALL is stealing people!

The waiter was so rude when we reminded him that he forgot to bring a meal that we ordered, he started snapping and pretended not to understand. After that he avoided us and asked another waiter to wait on us. The pasta with seafood was disgusting as well as the crab risotto, my parents and my sister barely ate. oh... More
