Finding and reserving a restaurant for your ideal time and location can be tricky, especially in Venice. Avoid the city tourist traps with this hassle-free package, and start your concert evening with a relaxing pre-show meal.
Beautiful church and beautiful music!
Would highly recommend this trip. Concert was fantastic and food amazing!
Thanks for a great night to remember.

The restaurant was very cute and the food was excellent. We had to walk ourselves to the Concert, which was easy to find. Concert was ok, seating was hard to find since we did not arrive early.
This was an excellent package with food that was good value, and service that was excellent. The concert was a wonderful presentation of Vivaldi in a mpost appropriate setting.
The concert was fantastic. Highly recommend. If you love this type of music, it is a must do. The dinner not so much. It was not that close to the show location. Food was very bland. 1 of only 2 bad meals we had during our 2 week trip to Italy. Definitely not worth the extra cost. There are multiple restaurants in the same square at the show location. Waiter automatically assumed the change from the bill was a tip.
Too little information as to where and when - we were too tired to take advantage of the concert and unsure we could find the concert location after a fantastic meal so we went back to our hotel
This was a VERY disappointing experience. First, knowing that time before the concert would be tight, we arrived 10 minutes early 7:20 the front of the restaurant was packed, and upon presentation of our voucher we were escorted to a dim and noisy back room, seated right be the kitchen door. If we had not already pre-paid we would have walked out.
Second, available wait staff were clearly overworked, we did not receive wine or starters until 7:50, with our next dish served at 8:10 and the final plate at 8:20. Clearly it is an IMPOSSIBLE schedule. After we rushed through dinner, we rushed to the concert venue which as packed, and we secured two of the remaining four seats in the very back row of the church. Bottom line: food was average, service slow, and we barely made the concert.
Now, if you're dining in Italy, common sense will tell you to allow a full two hours prior to an event. I am SURPRISED that Viator would not know this and work it into the schedule. If we booked the concert directly in town, we would have saved, and then been able to select an appropriate dining location. There is absolutely nothing to recommend on this combo. The music was wonderful, of course, at least that which we heard in the last-row dead-zone.
A complete disappointment.
I wish to inform you about the restaurant and concert trip booked by your company. Firstly there was no organised trip. We found the restaurant and the concert venue ourselves. There were no other participants. When trying to phone the local contact, there was no reply. So in short there was no organised trip.
Thankfully the restaurant venue, staff and food was superb
The concert was fantastic.
But had we not been able to sort it all out ourselves, it could have been a disaster.
I would like this review posted on line to warn others.
