Beautiful and elegant setting, subtly opulent. Lovely views of Santa Maria Assunta & Santa Fosca. Wonderful service, attentive but unobtrusive. Fresh fish: San pietro (John Dory) ‘alla Carlina’, and Branzino. Delicious pancakes filled with custard, flamed with Cointreau!

I love this place. Our annual trip to Torcello, the mosaics and this restaurant are always a real highlight and I never get bored. The food is unpretentious and generous, the atmosphere warm, comfortable and surprisingly un-stuffy. The staff change seldom which suggests that they...More

Save your money and go to this restaurant the next time you are in Venice. Take the vaporetto from the Fondamenta Nova and the time is about an hour. Or take a private water taxi. Food is excellent and the wine list great. The setting...More

We enjoyed our 25th Anniversary lunch here at the Locanda Cipriani, in the garden and on a lovely sunny afternoon. The whole experience was so enjoyable from the food, wine, location and service. Would recommend without hesitation. Thanks and thanks again.

Going to Torcello for lunch at Locanda Cipriani has become one of the rituals during any of our stays in Venice. It is just such a contrast to the frenetic life in the City, much the same can be said of time spent on Burano...More

I last ate in the garden in February and it was warm and sunny. I guess November weather is similar to that of February.

You need to check with the restaurant directly through their website. However, I understand the restaurant may be closed in January & February.

Simple, elegant furnishings combined with polite, attentive service and culinary delights based on reinterpretations of typical Venetian dishes which created the "Cipriani style" are the ingredients that have gone into the success of each and every one of Giuseppe Cipriani's restaurants. Still today, they make the Locanda Cipriani in Torcello a cut above the rest. Unlike the surrounding triumphant landscapes with the churches and the blooms in the garden, the Locanda Cipriani, designed as a rustic maison d'hôte, receives its guests in a simple, almost austere environment dominated by wooden ceilings, terracotta bricks covering the walls decorated in Venetian bas-reliefs, and old copper pots and pitchers hanging here and there. he restaurant has two large rooms, both with large windows overlooking the garden. Diners can sit on the outdoor terrace in summer. The garden, is open from the beginning of spring right through to autumn. The blooming daisies, tulips, roses and dahlias, the golden pomegranate trees and the fiery red of the Virginia creeper vines combine to provide beautiful surroundings for the restaurant.. Every day, the "maitre pâtissier" creates a vast assortment of sweet snacks, bavarois, cream cakes, meringues, sorbets, biscuits and chocolates. Our maître carefully selects a range of Italian wines - with an emphasis on those from Friuli and Veneto regions - to provide the perfect accompaniment to the food. The kitchen, headed up by chef Cristian Angiolin, not only serves dishes invented by the Cipriani family and now considered classics - such as 'carpaccio' of raw meat and John Dory 'alla Carlina' - but also offers a whole range of dishes featuring fish, vegetables, home-made pasta and rice.
