MY EXTRAVAGANT GUIDE TO EATING IN VENICE

THIS LIST WON’T OFFER ANY BARGAIN OPTIONS FOR EATING OUT. IN FACT THE EXACT OPPOSITE, THINK SUPER PRICEY INCREDIBLE FOOD. THIS LIST IS FOR WHEN YOU DESERVE A TREAT & YOU’VE GOT CASH TO SPLASH

BELMONT BREAKFAST VENICE

BELMOND HOTEL CIPRIANI 

ORO

THE BELMOND HOTEL CIPRIANI HAS SEVERAL SPOTS TO FEAST IN. OUR FAVOURITE (& MOST EXTRAVAGANT) WAS ORO. THE MICHELIN STARRED RESTAURANT SERVING THE MOST AMAZING A LA CARTE AND TASTING  MENU WITH INCREDIBLE WINE TO BOOT IS CERTAINLY A PLACE TO CELEBRATE IN. THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE MUST TRY IF YOU’RE GOING ALL OUT. TAKE THEIR 24HRS SHUTTLE BOAT FROM ST MARKS SQUARE OVER TO GIUDECCA WHERE THE HOTEL IS SITUATED. ENJOY WATCHING THE SUNSET OVER THE WATER WHILE EATING POSSIBLY THE MOST CRAZY DELICIOUS FOOD GOING IN VENICE.

BELMOND VENICE

BELMOND HOTEL CIPRIANI– PORTICCIOLO POOL RESTAURANT

THIS LUNCH SPOT SERVES UP HOMEMADE INCREDIBLE PIZZAS, FRESH FISH PLATTERS AND OF COURSE PASTA. WHEN RESERVING YOUR TABLE BE SURE TO REQUEST ONE OF THE TABLES RIGHT ON THE WATER TO MAKE THE MOST OUT OF THIS DINING EXPERIENCE.

CIPS VENICE

BELMOND HOTEL CIPRIANI – CIPS RESTAURANT

YOU MAY NEED A LITTLE HELP FINDING THIS ONE, DESPITE STAYING IN THE HOTEL WE STILL MANAGED TO GET LOST WHILE HUNTING IT DOWN! THIS IS A LOVELY LUNCH OR DINNER SPOT AND ITS A FLOATING RESTAURANT FACING OUT TOWARDS ST MARKS SQUARE. YOU COULD SPEND HOURS HERE JUST WATCHING THE WORLD (AND BOATS) GO BY. PASTA & SEAFOOD IS THE ONLY WAY TO GO HERE. COMPLETELY DELICIOUS

VENICE HOUSES

ACQUA PAZZA VENICE

ACQUA PAZZA

IF YOU SHOULD FIND YOURSELF IN NEED OF PIZZA THEN HEAD HERE. THE OWNER BRINGS THE FLAVOURS OF AMALFI TO VENICE. PIZZAS ARE PRETTY GREAT HERE, HOWEVER PASTA (THERE’S A GENEROUS SELECTION OF VEGETARIAN PASTAS ON OFFER) IS WELL WORTH A TRY TOO. WE WATCHED AS ANOTHER TABLE WERE SHOWN A LARGE SEABASS PRIOR TO IT BEING COOKED SO FISH IS PROBABLY A GOER HERE TOO… A SENSE OF FORMALITY AND OCCASION MAKES FOR A FUN PLACE TO HEAD TO. THE PIAZZA WHERE IT’S POSITIONED IS BEAUTIFUL. EXPECT SLIGHTLY MARDY SERVICE, WHICH IS MADE TOTALLY WORTH EXPERIENCING FOR THE FOOD YOU’LL EAT.

AMAN VENICE

THE AMAN VENICE

IF I HAD A CHOICE I WOULD HAVE NEVER LEFT THIS PLACE. THE AMAN IS AN EXCEPTIONAL HOTEL. FROM THE BUILDING ITSELF DOWN TO THE STAFF, SERVICE AND RESTAURANT. YOU JUST CAN’T FAULT IT. IF THERE’S ONE PLACE TO STOP OFF AND DUCK OUT OF THE CHAOS THEN THIS IS IT. THIS DELICATELY RESTORED 16TH CENTURY PALACE OFFERS LUNCH, AFTERNOON TEA AND DINNER. I WOULD RECOMMEND BOOKING FOR ANY OF THOSE OPTIONS, WHENEVER THEY HAVE AVAILABILITY. YOU’LL DINE IN MUSEUM LIKE SURROUNDINGS. FOOD AND SERVICE IS IMPECCABLE BUT WITH A RELAXED EDGE TO IT. FOOD HITS THE SPOT ACROSS THE BOARD. BE SURE YOU TRY THEIR SAFFRON RISOTTO AND WHITE TIRIMISU.

DA FIORE

DA FIORE (SAN POLO)

THIS WAS THE FIRST PLACE WE WERE RECOMMENDED TO TRY IN THE SAN PAOLO DISTRICT AND WITH IT’S MICHELIN STAR IT’S NOT TO BE MISSED. IT’S NOT CRAZY FANCY BUT SHIRTS AND TROUSERS ARE REQUIRED. THERE’S ONE AMAZING SPOT IN THIS OLD VENETIAN TAVERN WHICH OFFERS THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE SAT OVERLOOKING THE WATER. IT’S ALMOST A PRIVATE DINING EXPERIENCE WITH ALL THE OTHER TABLES INSIDE. THE VEGETARIAN WAS WELL CATERED FOR TRYING AN INCREDIBLE CHILLED SPAGHETTI WITH SMOKED AUBERGINE AND TOMATOES. FOOD IS RICH AND COMPLETELY DELICIOUS, ENJOY EVERY BITE.
