Third visit to the place. First time with our young son. Somewhat lenient service. Anyone without a kid was served faster and kinder. Once it turned out we were both regulars and spenders (wine) things changed. Conclusion: traditional food for couple (with or without child)...More

We took the cicchetti, which was very different of what we used to eat. If you want to eat fine food, with a great service, this is the place.

Don’t turn up without booking in the high season. By 8pm all the tables were occupied. An intimate yet lively atmosphere in a smallish room with low ceiling, dark panelled walls with sea faring decor. Excellent selection of drinks & cocktails and the food.....was tasty,...More

La Caravella restaurant in Venice can be discovered immediately behind the newly-restored La Fenice theatre, just a few paces from the Piazza San Marco. Stepping inside, you will feel as if you have entered an antique sailing ship, with dark wood paneling, capstans and ropes and leaded windows. In summer, you may not step inside at all as La Caravella moves into a flower-filled courtyard complete with original wells, or the lighter courtyard dining room with typical Venetian ambience. The menu is typically Venetian too, with dishes like classic saor, marinated sardines with onions, pine kernels and raisins, fish soup, or oven orast turbot with potatoes and olives. In addition, the chef uses fresh seasonal ingredients to create trendier fare. The excellent wine list features both historical wine producers and smaller boutique vintners. Planning a party? La Caravella welcomes wedding receptions, private dinners, banquets, corporate entertaining, even coffee breaks. The garden seats up to 65 and one of the dining rooms up to 75.
