The Principessa restaurant is located at the heart of Venice, just a stone's throw away from the main attractions such as: Saint Mark's Basilica and Doge's Palace. The menu offers to the restaurant guests a complete menu ranging from the typical Venetian and Italian culinary tradition to pizzas. The restaurant has a very nice terrace with tables, ideal for dining outdoors and for those who want to enjoy the unbeatable atmosphere of the city and the anchanting view of San Giorgio Island and the church of Santa Maria della Salute.
