We booked a table here and arrived and were told we didn't have a table but we would be accommodated anyway. We both ordered just mains and mine was probably smaller than a starter not filling and the last on the next table looked over...More

We booked reservations here based on TripAdvisor ratings and proximity to our hotel. We are not "foodies", but appreciate upscale dining. The welcome, service and atmosphere were all outstanding and would have gained a 5 rating by themselves, but the food (while not bad nor...More

We pre-booked via our hotel, admittedly quite late, and were given a table in a tent-like structure in the courtyard, right next to the tent door, which didn't close properly and was constantly opened by incomers and people going to the toilet - I could...More

I think it's interesting that multiple reviewers are complaining that they were served by multiple different waiters. This was actually one of my favorite parts to the point where I made a comment about it to my friend whilst eating. There's a sort of teamwork...More

This was a very special restaurant. The food was absolutely stunning, the service is top notch. It's cosy and warm but felt like an occasion just visiting. Booking is a must.

My daughter and I greatly enjoyed dinner at La Caravella. The restaurant's manager explained the difference in proseccos to us and we each had a glass of the DOCG, on his recommendation. The salmon amuse bouche was very tasty and I can thoroughly recommend the...More

I didn't find anything special about this place. OK food OK wine. Don't have too high expectations just because it was Michelin starred.

We love this place for drinks. Wine is reasonable at 6 euro per glass, beers are bottled and are between 8 euro and 15 (for a potent bottle of beers). What I love are the cocktails - between 12 and 18. The three cocktails i...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.
