    Tbf, they didn't seem to know we had booked, or know about my special request, but once I pointed it out, they couldn't be more helpful. They turned a negative into a positive and we had a fabulous time. The food was exquisite, and would not hesitate in visiting again. Strongly advise ringing in advance for a outside table. The views are amazing.

    We arrived a few minutes early for our midday lunch reservation. A small group of staff were chatting, and continued to chat as we waited. Eventually a woman asked rather brusquely what we wanted. I explained that we had a table booked for 12. She looked rather irritated and almost unbelieving. I showed her the confirmation on my phone. She gave a deep sigh and said ‘wait’. After a couple minutes, she said “I can seat you but we are not yet ready”. We said fine. We were seated, but given nothing, no menu, no water. We waited until about 12:10 before we saw anyone again. After that service was ok but not friendly. The food was nice, and the setting is terrific, but really for a place like this the service should be more welcoming.

    Lunch was OK, expensive and not very flavorful. Not bad for near st marks, but much better places available away from tourist areas

    You need to be aware as to when the kitchen closes. We were rushed to order our food and the restaurant was empty but it took close to an hour to get some pasta.

    The best dining experience in Venice! We had a table outside with the most amazing Grand Canal view. Our server was extremely nice and attentive. The food was top notch! A very generous portion of tuna prepared medium was delicious and the best caprese salad in all of Venice can be found here. We were celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary and this was the perfect place for it. We enjoyed it so much we made reservations for dinner on our last night in Venice.

    I wish I could write a proper review of this restaurant. Unfortunately, the people there were extremely rude. The main guy just yelled to us “we just can’t” honor our reservation and left us out cold at the time when all restaurant in Venice were either full or closing after lunch. We had made our reservation well in advance to our trip. Bottom line, do not trust this restaurant to honor a reservation.

    The restaurant was very accommodating to our needs. When we wanted to move indoors because one of our party was cold they immediately moved us in doors. The restaurant is right on the Grand Canal so the view was great. Indoors the decor was very chic and had a nice ambiance. Our food was very good. I had the grilled tuna with capers & olives and loved it. I would recommend this place and I would go back.

    Patient service made the evening as we lingered through a Grand Canal side dinner with a setting sun, threatening thunder shower, a distance lighting display and full moon. Venetian menu basics were on offer and well prepared. We ordered a 5 course dinner, and the restaurant happy let us split the first two plates. Catch of the day was fresh, grilled lightly and de-boned at our table. The tiramisu was excellent. Limited wines by the glass, but those available poured well. A memorable romantic Venetian evening with great food. (Only down side was late arrivals of smokers wanting a night-cap. A ubiquitous problem in Europe.)

    The view from the terrace is simply spectacular!! This was a magical place, and by far our favorite meal in Italy yet. We sat down around sunset and had the most gorgeous view. The food was perfectly delicious - we shared plates like the tuna steak and the gnocchi (which was particularly good), and finished the evening off with a nice glass of prosecco and tiramisu that tasted like it was whipped up only minutes before - so yummy! Thank you to the Ombra del Leone staff for a delightful, unforgettable evening.

    La vista sul Canal Grande era eccezionale, e il cibo era delizioso. L'atmosfera e il cibo sono le due cose più importanti in un ristorante per me, e questo posto supera le aspettative. Due pollici in su!

    I love the relaxed feel of this place. I definitely would return to try more menu items. Pasta alle Vongole was came highly recommended and ended up being amazing. Also my husband tried the Tuna TarTar - it was so fresh and yummy!! The wine list was also wonderful. There was a huge variety in both types of wine and price scale, so we didn't have to break the bank on a bottle of delicious wine. The service was well-timed and friendly, also making some silly jokes to make us laugh. All in all, it was the perfect experience!

    We wanted dinner with a view and this was it! Right on the canal with a fantastic view of the boats and buildings. Pro tip: book during sunset! So worth it. The manager/owner was very friendly and came and chatted with us a few times to make sure all was good. We mentioned that we were on our honeymoon and he took great care of us! Definitely try this place.
