Description
In the heart of Venice, close to Rialto Bridge and ten minutes from S. Marco Square you will find the restaurant Da Mario alla Fava opened since 1960. The menu is based on recipes from traditional Venetian cuisine, reworked for today's preferred tastes with a creative touch. The restaurant offers fresh seafood dishes as well as a tasty vegan menu. Fine desserts are home made, created with special attention at the moment. In summer the restaurant has a beautiful terrace beside a typical Venice Canal, ideal for a candle light dinner. One wall of the restaurant is lined with hundreds of photographs of famous celebrities who have enjoyed Da Mario alla Fava. Recalling Mario alla Fava motto: "If you are sad and bored with life, you will rediscover joy at Da Mario alla Fava".
