My husband and I splurged on a dinner at La Caravella as we were staying in the attached hotel. It was a truly wonderful experience. We sat out in the courtyard under the stars, so the setting was lovely. The staff was gracious and the...More

Recommended by our hotel and didn’t disappoint. Fantastic food and service in a lovely atmosphere. Not the cheapest but for a special occasion it’s perfect. Going back again tomorrow evening.

We ate there one night. The food was good as was the service. It is a big restaurant, and I found it too impersonal, but my meal was good.

The wait staff is so condescending and unwelcoming. It’s like they are doing you a favor to wait on you. The food is mediocre at best. Thin sliced potatoes means potato chips. At those prices you should get real potatoes. There are so many good...More

We were pushed here by our concierge, and although it was not a bad experience, it certainly was not particularly memorable, aside from the beautiful space. We generally search out more local cuisine, and while the food was reasonably well-prepared, this is definitely a destination...More

We had dinner at La Caravella twice on our trip to Venice, because we liked it so much the first time. It is a little pricier than the usual local trattoria, but what you are paying for is well executed Venetian food (great fresh seafood),...More

La Caravella restaurant in Venice can be discovered immediately behind the newly-restored La Fenice theatre, just a few paces from the Piazza San Marco. Stepping inside, you will feel as if you have entered an antique sailing ship, with dark wood paneling, capstans and ropes and leaded windows. In summer, you may not step inside at all as La Caravella moves into a flower-filled courtyard complete with original wells, or the lighter courtyard dining room with typical Venetian ambience. The menu is typically Venetian too, with dishes like classic saor, marinated sardines with onions, pine kernels and raisins, fish soup, or oven orast turbot with potatoes and olives. In addition, the chef uses fresh seasonal ingredients to create trendier fare. The excellent wine list features both historical wine producers and smaller boutique vintners. Planning a party? La Caravella welcomes wedding receptions, private dinners, banquets, corporate entertaining, even coffee breaks. The garden seats up to 65 and one of the dining rooms up to 75.
