Dinner was very good. Five of us each had a different dish and all were very pleased. Ambiance rather stark and service was only ok. Good good food!

We went for Thanksgiving. The beet salad was delicious, and so were the turkey and dessert courses. We shared the modern flatbread. My guests opted to order off the menu for their entrees. Braised pork and a Moroccan inspired lamb dish were their choices. Also very delicious. Cafe Longet makes any dinner night a special occasion.

Enjoyed the smaller size restaurant, which made it a nicer dining experience. The service was lovely, nice guitar player playing in the background. Food was served hot and delicious.

Top meal in recent memory. Both duck and sea bass, and sides, were perfect. Service stellar as well.

Quaint restaurant with a guitar player on Friday night. I had the escargot served with French bread. It was very good. Had the sea bass with whipped potatoes and asparagus. Some of the best whipped potatoes I have ever had. Husband had the house special shredded beef and whipped potatoes. Both entrees were excellent. Only recommendation that I would have would be to serve bread and butter with the wine while we were waiting for the meal. It was an overall very pleasant experience with very friendly service. Would definitely go again.

We have been to Cafe Longet many times and it is one of our favorite "go-to places" in Venice. The food is always wonderful and the service is good, but sometimes they get overwhelmed with their small kitchen and staff. Still it was a wonderful evening.

As usual, everything delicious! The shrimp burger was wonderful! I wanted a glass of a dry rose - their driest wasn’t available by the glass, but they “found” me a glass of it. How nice!!

I’ve reviewed this place before, but this time they out did themselves with a wonderful combination of delicious food and a nice selection of wines for tasting. This is a true diamond in the rough and we have found every dish they offer to be exquisitely prepared and served. Can’t say enough good things about this restaurant!!!

I would encourage anyone looking for an extraordinary dining experience to try Cafe Longee! Customer service was top notch from the moment we entered the restaurant! The cuisine is incredible, surpassing the highest expectations and Michelin rated restaurants. I look forward to dining at Cafe Longe in the near future and my only complaint is it isn’t closer to my city of residence!

Their salad of barrata, melon, prosciutto, crispy onions on a bed of fresh lettuce and tomatoes is to die for! Also their ratatouille is the best I’ve ever had. I’ve never been disappointed with Cafe Longet!

I like this restaurant. All of the food I have tried this time and in the past has been well prepared and delicious. The service is always good although this last time I thought it was a bit harried perhaps because we were the last seating of the night at 8pm.

The food was exceptional. The staff was very accommodating and we could not of ask for better service.
The entire staff worked as a team to make ones' evening special. The entertainment ( guitar player) was very nice and appropriate for a dinner out. If you have not been you should try it. The cheese plate was very different and delicious. The presentation was special, so I will not spoil by describing. We both had fish, sea bass and sesame incrusted salmon and we have not had better. The atmosphere was nothing to write home about but that is pretty normal for store front restaurants in Venice. It is definitely worth giving this restaurant a try if you haven"t already. D & G

The menu had enough selections without being overwhelming. Staff was very friendly. Guitar music was just the right volume and song selections were perfect for the clientele. Food was tasty with good presentation. The wines were appropriate for the food selection and of good quality.
