Agli Artisti, Ruga Giuffa: Excellent food - don't annoy the head waiter
As my wife and I were eating a very nice meal in the Agli Artisti on Ruga Giuffa, I said that I would have to recommend it on Virtual Tourist. No sooner were the words out of my mouth when the head waiter (possibly the proprietor) started arguing with a German couple who had been given the wrong order. The couple eventually gave up and ate what they were given. For the next 5 minutes the waiter looked very annoyed. When we got our bill we were overcharged and when I pointed this out, the same waiter grudgingly corrected the error without apology. Having said this, the food was excellent, the rest of the staff very friendly, and the decor was lovely. All in all, a good experience. It appears that there is a small hotel near Santa Lucia Station with the same name. They are in different locations.
Favorite Dish: There is a fixed menu for 19.50 euros (seafood was slightly more), starter, pasta, main course and a dessert. I particularly enjoyed the veal.
Agli Artisisti: Beware tourist trap restaurants!
Looks great from the outside - tucked away in a backstreet with intimate tables and lighting. Big menu with some inexpensive looking dishes. House wine is reasonable inprice and taste. BUT - the service is awful. Somehow they manage to make really simple Italian dishes taste bland to awful. Pizza base is OK but the toppings are so scarce. You could do much better in your own kitchen with a jar ready-made Italian sauce and pasta. If this restaurant was dirt cheap you might forgive. But as with many restaurants in Venice by the time you add on the charge for service, coffee, drinks etc you may find yourself even more dissatisfied with the food.
Ai Artisti: Cappuccino Stop
After circling around the Venetian Labyrinth we finally found a place to have a nice Cappuccino and Pastries.
