I noticed a special offer for a complementary bottle of wine. Please make sure they don’t charge you for this (read below). Hotel: We asked if they did anything special for honeymooners . They offered us a complimentary dinner at their Michelin star restaurant. Restaurant: The wine was good, the food was flavorless and under-cooked. My steak was so rare... More

My wife and I first visited five years ago and when our friends suggested a trip to Venice it seemed the ideal opportunity to return. We even had the exact same room which unusually for me I really enjoyed. We weren't disappointed; the sense of calm and tranquility after the hubbub of Venice is wonderful. It was a shame we...

What an interesting place! You will need to get over the "remote" feel of location. At breakfast, meet other guests from all over the world and appreciate the relative quiet of an out the way place like Mazzorbo. A short walk onto Burano, but nearly 40 minutes by vaporetto back to Venice proper (Murano is on the way if you... More

We visited Mazzorbo Island as part of an SPG Moment. We found the staff to be most welcoming and accommodating in the Osteria and at the front desk. The front desk was very helpful in fixing a last minute glitch with our prearranged return trip to the Hotel Danieli. And the food in the Osteria was simply wonderful...fresh and delicious.... More

A 30 minute water taxi or 60 minutes vaporetto trip from the San Marco, this hotel is on a reasonably quite canal on Mazzorbo. The hotel has a restaurant and its own vineyard where wine cultivation has been reintroduced since a long absence. The rooms are simple, only with showers. If you can have one of the rooms on the...

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

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.

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
