Excellent service and a sommelier who knows her stuff. Very good starter, reasonable main and disappointing desert - so four stars for food rather than five. I'm not really sure why they need such a complicated menu, which consists of three set course menus: vegan,...More

Nice place to eat and value for money for what you get but we were disappointed as some of the food was quite tasteless. Vegan starter was too cold and main meat course disappointing. Chocolate desert was amazing though

Through simplicity and attention to detail, we deliver an elegant, sophisticated and polished dining experience that will satiate and excite every palate. Choose from a selection of wines, local and international, that have been handpicked to best accompany the flavors of our dishes and heighten the meal, with options for every taste. The serene and luxurious setting make for an ideal atmosphere to accommodate guests looking for a romantic dinner, or those hosting a business dinner or event. Chose between a table in the small, picturesque alley in the old harbor where Serenissima Restaurant is located, in the hotel’s stone wall dining room with its comfy leather chairs or on the charming private veranda. It is our pleasure to cater guests’ private dinners, meetings, cocktail parties and special occasions always keeping our high quality standards in focus.
