During our trip to Italy, we were encouraged to visit Pellestrina, a quaint little fishing village a short distance from Venice. The village was a welcome respite from the bustle of Venice. While there, we discovered La Celeste.; an unassuming restaurant perched on the water. Our lunch was excellent; fresh, delicious seafood prepared perfectly. This was arguably the best meal of our trip; and our trip was filled with excellent meals. From the antipasto, to the seafood spaghetti, to the grilled mixed fish, to the tiramisu and coffee; nothing could have been more enjoyable. It is certainly worth the trip to Pellistrina; for the change of pace as well as the outstanding restaurant that resides there.

Got there by boat with friends , it was fantastic, location, service and quality of food hard to match. One of the best fish lunch I had, and I am Venetian. Highly recommended.

It is a long distance from Venice but definitely worth the journey. Fresh fish and beautiful views of the lagoon.

Located on beautiful - be it somewhat secluded - Pellestrina, so you have to go to some length to reach this place, but believe me: it's more than worth the trip. This place is a real seafood heaven. Their outside terrace is literally on the water on a wooden platform on stilts with stunning views on the Laguna Veneta. The quality and variety of their seafood is unparalleled: fresher than fresh canoche (mantis shrimp), moleche, (soft shell crabs), octupus, cuttlefish, you name it. One of the best lunches I ever had. You can reach Da Celeste by vaporetto (waterbus), disembark at Pellestrina Cimitero and walk for about 1 km. Should you happen to stay in Chioggia (and why shouldn't you?): rent a bike at Bragozzi Ulisse and let them transport you and your bike by boat to Villagio Caroman, the southernmost spot on Pellestrina. From there you can do a bike tour around beautiful Pellestrina and stop for lunch at Da Celeste.
