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.

Service was fast, efficient, professional, couteous and above all friendly.
The fresh yellowtail was stupendous and cooked to perfection.
The sommelier's advice was excellent and again friendly. He made no attempt to upsell, quite the reverse actually.
The room is cosy and extremely comfortable, a perfect setting for a long boozy lunch with friends (like we had).
The prices are high, but for this level of quality and service, worth every penny.
I shall return next time I'm in town.

Turned onto this restaurant by the lady that sold my wife an overpriced handbag from one of those expensive stores down the road. Luckily this meal didn't disappoint me as much as looking at my credit card bill after the trip.

We made our way back to our Hotel (Flora) which happened to be right across the via from this Restaurant. Our hotel made us reservations for that night and in due time we were ushered to a fabulous table prominently placed on the main window and center of the room. The first thing that stood out in this establishment was the service. Can't say enough about how fantastic the waitstaff were with juggling all the drinks, courses and requests from all the tables in the quaint room like a well oiled machine. Service throughout the dinner was sublime.

Speaking of food, amazing. From the complimentary salmon starter to the chocolates and jellies that ended the dinner all of it was superb. Each of the four of us ordered radically different meals and every plate finished clean. The turbot with an olive and ink waffle was delicious and by the looks of it so was the beef filet, piglet and the assorted meat and cheese plate.

Drinks were kept up with throughout the night and local (obviously) wine was excellent.

Its pricey, but its great food and great service, which means its worth every penny. Would 100% visit again and again.

Reservation made on recommendations from friends and family. Greeted and shown to our table, brought lovely breads and creamed butter followed by a lovely mackerel portion on creamy mash - this is before our food was ordered and free of charge, as was the chocolates and Turkish delight at the end of the meal.
Starters and mains were excellent, the pasta starter dishes were amazing and the mains simply stunning. Service excellent from a team of staff who all knew their roles and were seamless.
5 diners, one bottle of red wine and a 420 Euro bill including deserts, not the cheapest but genuine quality never is.

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.
