Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Veneto / Province of Venice / City of Venice / Venice / Pantagruelica
Embarrassing!! Been to the shop many times but my previous review was in error on the owner's name -- it is Maurizio NOT Tony! my apologies. Everything else I have written about the shop is true! Maur... more »

We were careful to avoid tourist traps in Venice, but this one took us by surprise: yes, non of the articles were visibly priced, but the shop owner was so friendly, he even let us taste several products to prove they were of the best quality. Then it was time to pay... and the prices turned out to be rediculously high, even for high quality products. And speaking of quality: when we got back at our appartment, the burrata cheese was already too far gone and sour. We looked for the expiration date only to discover it was simply cut off, in order to be able to sell it past its sell by date... Later during our stay in Venice, we tried another salumeria with high quality cheese, meats and fresh pasta: Casa del Parmigiano. Its near the Rialto Bridge and everthing we bought there was not only reasonably priced, but it was also very very high quality (and no, they don't pay me to write this stuff 😊). So please be warned and don't let Enogastronomia Pantagruelica ruin your day like it did ours. Venice has too much good and affordable food on offer.
Cappucino on the terrace in the sun 2,50€.
