Great experience. The venue was wonderful with a great waitstaff. The courses were perfect as was the matched wines. Id do this again.
Lovely dinner in the inner courtyard of the restaurant. Our server was very knowledgeable about each of the wines he served us. The food was excellent, as well. It was a welcome respite from the crowds of tourists.
excellent outdoor location. very good meal and wine, a lot of food. Keep in mind that this is really not a group event. We sat at a table by ourselves as did the other three people that did this event.
The food, staff and atmosphere were all exceptional.
The staff took the time to explain the wine pairings and the portion size was more than sufficient.
My name is Christine Forth and this was a gift from my sister in law for me and my husband. The evening was a great success and we both thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Claudio was our wine expert and he was spot on with each wine for each course. The restaurant was quite unique and the staff were lovely. we will remember our visit for ever and would love to do it all over again one day.
Had such a great time! The information about the grapes and wine we had and his professional nature and personality was worth every penny! Look forward to that experience again! He was fantastic, and the food was perfect
We had a wonderful meal with delicious wines selected and discussed by the sommelier.
We would do this activity again

This wine and dinner pairing was a highlight of our trip to Venice. We had a wonderful meal, paired with 5 different wines. The sommelier took lots of time to give information about the grapes and growing regions of each wine we tasted. He even emailed us a detailed list of everything we sampled. The food was excellent, and the restaurant staff was friendly and attentive. We're definitely glad we booked this tour.
The meal was great and the sommelier took the time and effort to talk to us about the wine chosen to accompany each course with amazing detail and passion he even offered to email us the wines selected for future reference, which was a nice touch.
We arrived promptly at 7pm as instructed which was a little disconcerting as the place was pretty empty. However it soon filled-up. The restaurant part of the hotel/bar was accommodated in an awning with solid sides and roof. During the meal the roof was opened, but the evening air was quite chilly as it had rained that day so for the rest of the evening it was a little cold and some diners remained wearing their jackets/coats. The roof opened possibly for the benefit of the staff who as usual were busying themselves around the tables. Perhaps the staff should have noticed that their patrons put jumpers and or jackets on and thought a little bit more about the temperature for the benefit of their guests?
Also I understand that our evening would last a good few hours as we were eating 4/5 courses however the meal seemed a little rushed once it was underway. We were required to select at the outset our 4 courses. This I presumed was so the sommelier could then determine which wine would accompany which course, although perhaps that is being naive as in reality there was only a choice of two meal selections for each course so I would think wines were already pre-selected based upon the meal selected! At one point we had to ask them to slow down the service as we felt we were being rushed and frankly we need time between the substantial meals of each course to gather our breath. We did notice that they were looking to turn-over the tables when they did become empty as there were people queuing throughout the evening to get a table, so maybe that's a reason for the quick service, although once we asked them to slow down there did not seem to be a rush to get us away from the table. Maybe if you contemplate doing this ask them at the outset to pause until you are ready between courses.
We thought the experience was very good and as especially as it was a treat for my wife's birthday and we considered it, for this reason alone, worth the expense. I would say it is a good special occasion venue and experience and although good we had had equally good meals in other places during our stay, perhaps not 4 courses who can eat that much food in one sitting regularly anyway!.
Would I do it again? Probably not, but I'm glad I did experience it. I would however eat at the venue again even though it is normally a little pricier than other restaurants we would hope the evening weather was a little warmer though!. The wine selection is excellent and the food cooked perfectly so that's a good enough reason for me to go back.
This was very good. The restaurant and dinner was first class. I was a little surprised, however, as I thought this was a group outing but turned out the two of us were the only ones there for this particular menu? But the dinner was terrific, the service was impeccable and the sharing information regarding the wines was very interesting. I believe it was a bit overpriced however.

Nice restaurant. Great service. The food and wine were very interesting. Going back tonight with 9 friends!
Beautiful outdoor setting for this dinner, wonderful service, unfortunately, I was too ambitious and booked this for the night I arrived in Venice after 32 hours of flying and airports so was unable to finish the meal due to jet lag.
Lovely staff and setting though, would happily recommend to others to try, easy to find as well, which was good for a gal like me travelling alone!
Dinner was fine but this is way over priced. I would not recommend this,
