We went to Caffe Centrale after a show at La Fenice. Caffe Centrale stays opened quite late, which is very convenient. Service and atmosphere were lovely. The food was very nice too. Highlight was an outstanding Spritz, with lemon foam. Wonderful!

Its expensive wherever you eat in Venice but this place is pretty good value. They have a varied menu and you can probably expect to pay 50 euro per head for a lovely meal.
