We have just returned from a trip to Europe that included Venice, Berlin and Amsterdam. I researched and made reservations for a special dinner in each city. I, after hearing glowing reviews on these boards, made a reservation at "Il Ridotto". I have to say I was disappointed. The small restaurant is charming. The service was friendly and efficeint. The food was meticulously presented but was consistently over-salted., to the point of being unedible. We struck up a conversation with a mother and daughter next to us who were also unimpressed. I did however redeem myself with a reservation made in Berlin at "Ma Tim Rau"...absolutly phenomenal!!!
