Dining in Venice

See all our Restaurant recommendations (pdf)

Centrale Lounge Restaurant

A hip new bar-restaurant, just steps from Piazza San Marco, boasting a futuristic design housed in a 16th-century building. For a romantic dinner, ask for a corner table overlooking the water. Refined traditional Venetian cuisine is served until late (1am).
Piscina Frezzeria, San Marco, Tel. 041 296 0664, closed tuesday.

Naranzaria - Wine Bar in Rialto
Back in the days when Venice was the gateway to the Orient, the "Naranzaria" was the warehouse where citrus fruits were stored. Now in this warm osteria you can enjoy the exotic flavours of sushi, couscous, and typical Veneto delights, including salami from Friuli and regional wines.
San Polo 130, open noon to 2am, Tel. 041 7241 035, closed monday

Avogaria Locanda & Restaurant
Intimate yet stylishly modern, the Avogaria welcomes diners to its beautiful courtyard-garden and atmospheric dining room. The delicious Mediterranean cuisine includes specialties such as bean and prawn puree, shellfish with aromatic herbs, and fresh ravioli stuffed with buttered seabass and lobster.
Calle dell'Avogaria 1629, Tel. 041 296 0491

Osteria Enoteca San Marco
This elegant osteria, located a stone's throw from Piazza San Marco, is a step up in both quality and decor from many of the tourist-orientated eateries in the area. Noodles with lobster and tender venison are among the tempting dishes offered in this relaxed and rustic setting. The extensive wine list is also excellent.
Frezzeria San Marco 1610, Tel. 041 528 5242, closed sunday

Riva Rosa Burano
Definitely the most romantic spot in the Venetian lagoon. If you visit Burano Island, famous for its colourful houses and ancient lacemaking traditions, you cannot miss Riva Rosa. Its intimate ambience and professional service is the result of its being run by four generations of one Burano family. The emphasis is on seafood and a private terrace (called "altana") overlooking the houses and surrounding canals is a delight.
Calle S.Mauro, Burano, Tel. 041 730 850, closed wednesday
