My partner and I dined in the romantic courtyard of La Caravella restaurant on a beautiful warm summer evening. The food was delicious, the service attentive and responsive and the environment perfect. A melt in the mouth fillet steak stole the show.

Small little bar attached to a larger hotel and restaurant. Service was quick and efficient. Decent selection of Rum’s & Whiskey’s on offer as well, I got a plate of dark chocolates with dark chocolate sauce to go with my Rum, lovely.

If you want to pay too much for average food this is the place. Service was indifferent and wine description left us with a tasteless bore of a bottle. For the price you can do better. Given the good ratings were very surprised.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.
