Very expensive. €60.00 for four beers. Normally €10.00 for one beer! Nice area to sit down in the sunshine. I should have looked at the price in the menu.

Food was average but the service was good and most importantly, the parasols offered a welcome relief from the blazing sun. Located just off San Marco square with a great view of the Grand Canal, it offers some relaxation and great people watching

We got a Groupon offer for an aperitif and the staff were super friendly, and the drink and snacks were lovely. We had a nice table outside looking over the gondolas. It was very busy but of course it's Venice! Can't complain, we had a...More
