We had walked by this restaurant several times and even called once for reservations and were told they were booked. We so happened to decide to walk in and I spoke with Claudio and explained to him it would be our last dinner in Italy...More

We were very lucky to get a table as we arrived without reservations. Beautiful relaxing atmosphere, professional, attentive service! The cicchetti platter was lovely, and our beef fillets were cooked to perfection, beautiful presentation. Tiramisu was delicious! We will be back!

Nothing Italien about this “hotel restaurant”. Don’t expect to find any Italiens here. Only tourists, hence the food is not only very expensive but quality is average. Not at all Venetian!!! Never again guys!!More

The dinner was really good, and fish from the grill was excellent and fresh. Cesar salat was delicious. The waiters were professional and everything flew smoothly. A bit pricy but definitely worth it.

Description
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.
