If you have time this is a nice change. The restaurant was good and the concert was excellent. Slightly confusing in finding the restaurant with the Viator directions being just off the square. Allow 1 1/2 hrs for the meal and then the walk to the church is about 10 minutes which is easy to find, but ask at the restaurant. The times given in the brochure do not agree but that is probably due to the various changes in programs offered for the concert. Our times showed concert starting at 8:30 but did not start until 9, which would have given us extra time to enjoy the meal at Osteria Leon Bianco.
Would highly recommend this trip. Concert was fantastic and food amazing!
Thanks for a great night to remember.
The meal was very good with some nice options on a set menu. The only problem we encountered was that our waiter directed us to Chiesa di Santo Stefano rather than to Chiesa di San Vidal for the Baroque concert. Luckily, the two churches are in close proximity to each other and we weren't too late for the concert. My recommendation is that the people working at Osteria Leon Bianco need to know which church to send people to for the concert. We were fortunate that we could gain admission to the concert even though we were late.

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 experience was good the communcation was bad. IF YOU DO THIS TOUR.
MEET at the restaurant FIRST around 7pm.
THEN go to the church for the concert by 8:45pm April to Nov
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
Was not pleased with this . Booked dinner , found the place was not a great environment. Finished dinner then ask where we to go for concert. Gave us very vague instructions so needless to say we struggled to find it asking several people along the way. Was not nice at all
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.
