I had read about this spot online. But when I initially went to book, they had no rooms (there are only 6 I think). But I persisted and they finally had something open up for our dates. We stayed in Venice proper the 1st night. But this made for a wonderful contrast. The water taxi ride over was amazing. And... More

Service is excellent in this fabulous wine tourism destination. Discover unique indigenous grape wine Venissa in the island of Mazzorbo and enjoy the gastronomic adventure in the Restaurant with several michelin level experienced great chefs. The rooms were spacous and pleasent to stay, during almost 40 C heat wave, those were occassionally slightly warm and fifth star would have required... More

Dear Pasi, thank you for your nice review, Venissa is a great wine destination just few minutes away from Venice. I can see that some of our August guest would love a swimming pool, I can understand you very well, this august was really hot, unfortunately it is almost impossible to have permission to build it in Venice.

Venissa is run by the charming Matteo Bisol of the famous wine family and his lovely wife Veronica who are both dedicated to making Venissa a success. One can immediately see that a great deal of work and effort has been expended. However, there are some details that need to be improved. The air conditioning in our room laboured with... More

We booked a suite at Venissa for our 20th wedding celebration and arrived on the actual day. We had told them in advance about our anniversary but throughout our stay the majority of staff barely smiled let alone congratulated us, spoke to us or did anything at all special. We felt so unwelcome that we chose to eat elsewhere both... More

Dear guest, I'm sorry that our front desk staff was not enough welcoming, having just 6 rooms every guest has to be special! I agree on Gatto Nero restaurant, it is one on the best in Burano. Burano is a fisherman island that's why there are so many good restaurant around here. Best regards, Matteo Bisol More

I just love this hotel. They have only 6 rooms and the vineyard that they are located in is just beautiful. The Island of Mazzorbo is small and you are within a few minutes accross the bridge on the Island of Burano with its lovely coloured houses. The service is good and the restaurant serves excellent food. We enjoyed are... More

Dear Chantal, thank you for your nice review! I'm very happy you loved Venissa. Mazzorbo island is a perfect location to discover Venice and, at the same time, relax in the most natural part of the lagoon.

We've been to this hotel several times just the two of us, myself and my husband, Roger. I told my family, 2 sons, 2 daughters-in-Law and a grandson (6 years old now), that I would like to take them all to have a lovely time at Venissa hotel. We went there between 24th - 28th May 2015. We had such... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Venissa. The rooms were cool but functional, including towels that seemed too thin to dry you but magically did. The area was quiet and the room had a lovely view of the canal. For us, it was relaxing to return to what seemed at times like a private island after exploring Venice for... More

I was by myself for one day...calm place, I got everything I want within the hotel...2 beautiful restaurants with stunning view, great Venissa wines even make the stay more promising. The island centre is few minutes walking. Great location, food wine and people there are so freindly... unforgettable experience!

Dear Guest, thank you for you nice review. I know Venissa is not so close to the railway station (20 min from railway station to Venice Rialto area and 40 min from Rialto to Venissa), but as you said the trip is worth, specially when you can enjoy a good Prosecco in front of the lagoon at your arrival!
