Let's keep it real - there are many beautiful and delicious places to eat in Venice, but this place is special. While we did enjoy the food and am surprised to hear that others did not, the location, view, authentic art collection, attentive staff and...More

I must absolutely apologize, you’re right. I’m not already able to forecast the weather and -worse!- I’m not able to change the weather conditions as every normal innkeeper usually do daily for the happiness of the WC (World Customers) association !! Having fog and 13°C...More

“setting on water is important only if you eat outside”… …I think to understand so… When you walk (outside), to give call to inform that you’ll be 2 and not 4 is maybe not important, but allow to other Guests to enjoy a dinner, and...More

Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob
