A new culinary era in Venice

Oro captures the spirit of Venice—its romance, beauty and connection to the sea. Bordering the edge of the water, the view from your table is a gentle lagoon scene with unmissable vistas ignited by the evening's changing light.

Now with Chef Riccardo Canella at the helm, the menu is an eight-course meditation on local ingredients sensationally re-imagined and of course, seafood from the Adriatic Sea takes a starring role. With each dish Chef Canella guides you through the ebb and flow of flavours reaching a crescendo before ending on the final sweet note of dessert.
