My partner and I arrived in Lido on Monday evening last week. We asked the receptionist at the hotel where we could get something to eat near by. He recommended Gran Viale. We took a short walk from our hotel and managed to find it. On looking at the restaurant we didn't expect too much. However, we were completely wrong.... More

This restaurant remains extremely busy but manages to be welcoming, squeezing people in as they change the covers. Sardinas 'saor' were excellent, as was the prosciutto ( enough for 4 !) Scampi was first class, with real 'tempura' style batter, none of the thick 'packet' batter . But the salmon main course was small, completely overcooked and had bones, (... More

I can honestly say that this is the worst meal I have ever had.... The scampi looked like it was taken out of the bin and put with one piece of lettuce and a slice of lemon. Miserable staff and really poor food. Do not have the grilled scampi

Managed to snag the last table on a Thursday night without a reservation. Staff are very friendly and food was good, but still rather pricey - felt like Venice in town prices even though it's on Lido

We had a fantastic meal in here. The Chateaubriand was cooked to perfection. Attentive staff and clean.

As we were staying on the Lido, we ate at the Gran Viale twice. Both times we really enjoyed the food, particularly the anti pasti meats and the pizzas, which were delicious. The only reason we didn't give 5 stars is the service was a bit surly and we were made to feel dumb when we asked about local wines.

where do I start, after reading the reviews and being a betting girl, decided to take a chance and my goodness I am delighted we did - my 1st visit to Venice and this Restaurant and our stay at the Hotel Helvetia (another review) with only 1 min away, has melted my heart to this wonderful piece of Venice -...

Had our last meal here and what a meal, we informed them that we had only 1 hour before catching the ferry and they worked real fast to make sure our main meals came out quick. The food was excellent as was the house wine. Friendly staff and good outside eating with heat lamps.
