We ate here as it was recommended by our host at Cima Rosa and it was amazing! The feel of this restaurant is warm and cosy with the look of an old ship, staff were very friendly and attentive but not overbearing. Food was great, beautiful Bellinis! The restaurant made a birthday cake which was so beautiful and tasted delicious!... More

We came here for our anniversary meal whilst staying in Venice. We loved it! The waiters are friendly and attentive. The food was amazing - it looked good and tasted fantastic! Service was impeccable. The restaurant decor inside is cosy and inviting with a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. If we return to Venice, we will re visit for definite.

The restaurant is located only a short walk from San Marco. I loved the atmosphere, the restaurant looks like the interior of an old ship (hence the name La Caravella) and the staff are among some of the friendliest I have ever experienced in Venice. The restaurant manager Nicola just goes out of the way to make you feel at... More

My husband and I stayed in the hotel and ate in this restaurant on our first night which was also our tenth wedding anniversary. The restaurant is cute and intimate and decorated with dark wood and red. It has a nautical theme. We really enjoyed our meal and started with crab which was delicious, followed by duck ragu for me... More

Food is OK but the service is awful. Waiters are very aggressive with tourists and yell at people. The restaurant manager does not even try to make things better and seems to not care about waiters' misbehaviour.

An expensive restaurant that just didn't have the wow factor, Food overpriced compared to other restaurants we tried and even though I told them before hand that we were celebrating my wife's 50th birthday no effort was made to make it a special night.

Dear Mr. Tony f, we are sorry about the inconvenience that has occurred during your dinner. We’ve checked your reservation, which you made by The Fork. Unfortunately, the same evening we received 2 reservations, both specifying of a birthday celebration, and one of them was cancelled. Maybe one of our waiters forgot to ask you this detail (or you didn’t... 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.

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
