  • I am pretty sure anyone could show up at the bar and ask for a sampling of wines - there was no group and no real experience. The wines were okay but i wouldn't do this again.

  • There was no one there to meet us at the designated time. We called the on the page and the person on the phone just told us to go inside. The place was closed and the doors locked. They called the bar and a lady opened the door. She had us go sit and wait for about 15 min, while she did other things and attended other patrons walking in. The tasting consisted of 4 wines, 2 white/2red and 1 bite to go with each one. No explanation other than if it was dry or sweet, and that whites go with fish, reds with meat. After the wine was poured2 at a time, the lady told us she was leaving us to look at the bottles... Most of the time, we were left just sitting there. I, personally, do not recommend this wine tasting experience. There are so many other bars with better wine, food, service, and personality. Not worth the money and time.

  • We felt there was a switch and bait element to our evening which turned out to be Four glasses of wine at a bar in Venice. No one met the group at the appointed meeting point and two members of the party never found the tiny bar, which would not give any value for the 100 .

  • The staff were very knowledgeable and the food was superb. Unfortunately I was the only person taking part

  • Good wine good food and a explanation of each wine.

  • Really good food, cute atmosphere, not difficult to find and really nice staff. Unfortunately we were the only ones there and did not receive too much information on the wines and dishes served. Otherwise- really delicious food and worth staying for dinner afterward!

  • Very enjoyable. The restaurant was a little out of the way but we enjoyed seeing a new area of Venice. We tasted 4 wines, including one white, one prosecco and two reds. All glasses of wine were generous (about 100ml). The accompanying tapas were delicious and filling. We were there about 2 hours.

  • Great evening - I was the only one on the tour but the staff at the restaurant were fantastic!

  • wonderful tasting in a part of venice we'd never been to - so felt like locals! full glasses of wine and delicious appetizers. great fun pre dinner event.

  • While the wine and appetizers were delicious; we did not find the proprietor friendly at all. When we gave him our voucher for this, he said, "Well I suppose we can do this." We were the only ones doing this and he acted like it was a chore. I would definitely suggest something else. You can experience good wine anywhere in Venice and hopefully friendlier service.
