We enjoyed private dining in La Meridiana, one of the best restaurants in the area. The food is outstanding and local, with the seasonal specialities you'd expect from a restaurant of this calibre. HIGHLY recommended!

As another reviewer said, "How could we have missed this?" Ambience, service and above all food are excellent, and the prices, although not cheap, are very much in line with the quality of the experience.

The menu has many tasty Venetian and Piemontese selections but don't worry if you can't make up your mind, you... More

The Fantin family runs it, first daddy and mom were running , now the son is in the kitchen and Antonella is a pretty professional lady that makes you feel at home immediately. They have a good cuisine trying to get 'modern' . Personally I miss the time were daddy use to... More
