“Best Location in Venice”
Review of Cafe Saraceno

Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 May 2018

Located at the foot of the Rialto Bridge on the sidewalk overlooking the Grand Canal, this is the heart of Venice. Prices and cover charge are posted, so buyer beware. The food was excellent and arrived almost too quickly. They would not deliver our drinks before dinner because we had a primo table on the rail against the canal, and were afraid we would just have drinks. (they asked us if we were having dinner or drinks before they seated us there). Two entrees (19 and 14), a beer (7) , bottled water (5), and cover charge (3) and 12% Service (5) was 54 Euro. The waiters are all business, with no friendliness or small talk.

Total rip-off! restaurant plays to the fact that it is located at the foot of the Rialto Bridge. Unfriendly staff who doesn't care and take tourists for a ride. We ordered 2 pizza and 2 beers. Nothing speical and very expensive. Charge you a service cjarge to sit there and eat. Everyone smokes so while ypi try eay yoir dinner tables all aroind are smoking. Toilets were not useable.. grim. there is a € 5 charge! AVOID AT ALL COSTS

We just stopped here for a quick vino and a snack before our gondola ride. Reasonably priced from what i remember, but the view was breathtaking. Worth a quick visit

Thus was by far the worst restaurant we have ever been too . I can't believe they are even legal . Taking advantage of all tourists. Day light rubbery and bad quality food. Avoid this sharks and enjoy your evening.

This restaurant has tables right alongside the Grand Canal, which makes for very interesting sight-seeing while having dinner in the evening ! The waiters are very helpful and courteous ! The food is excellent, and the service is great too !
We highly recommend this restaurant !
