Can't fault this restaurant. Service is superb, the owner came round and introduced himself to us. We tried the tasting menu with the wine accompaniment and it's was so good. Very special place with a beautiful view.

If you expect to be blown away by amazing Italian food, think again. To be clear, the atmosphere and service is good, but I would expect much more of the food for a restaurant at this price point. While it is pretty good and the...More

Riviera is an elegant contemporary restaurant. On a rainy evening we arrived definitely under-dressed and damp from a day of touring in the rain but we were received graciously in the dining room. Service was efficient if a bit formal. The owner came by more...More

This restaurant is superb on all counts. We were greeted with warmth and kindness, seated in their spacious dining room, not the typical crowded table space. On good weather, outdoor dining is also possible with good weather. The restaurant faces out over the wide Giudecca...More

Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob
