Restaurant Do’Leoni in Venice’s historic and delightful Hotel Londra is named for Russian composer Tchaikovsky’s – he composed part of his fourth symphony, nicknamed Do’Leoni, here. This award-winning, elegant restaurant enjoys a superb location overlooking the lagoon with a covered veranda that expands the space in warm weather. The light, bright dining room with its creamy colours reflects the chef’s philosophy of offering light, contemporary food. Attention to detail is apparent everywhere, from the eight different breads baked daily to the home made ice creams and chocolate. Menus encompass classic, traditional and seasonal dishes in modern, innovative style, like tempura prawns with couscous timbale and mango preserve followed by classic calf’s liver with polenta. Wines and cheeses are superb as is the service.

The food at the hotel restaurant was lovely and was not a case of paying through the nose for not a lot as happens in most top class restaurants .Once again the staff were excellent and catered for your every need.

Great food beautifully served. Stunning location overlooking the lagoon but peaceful. It's a perfect mix of formal enough to feel very special but relaxed respectful attentive service. We loved it.

We ordered the tempura scampi, the fillet of Italian beef, fruit platter and tiramisu. WOW. It was delivered to our room beautifully presented and the taste was incredible. Amazing food! You must try the scampi! Yum!!!

The food at Do Leoni was excellent. We ate here for lunch out on the patio. In addition to good food and service, the location is prime for people watching. We had the duck breast and would happily repeat a visit. Now if I could just figure out how they made those mushrooms... Yum!

Beautiful restaurant with great food in a perfect location. We ate here for both lunch and dinner during a long stay in Venice. Lunch was preferable for us, as we enjoy sitting outside in a more casual setting. For dinner there was no outdoor seating, at least on this particular night. You lose the view when you're seated inside, but... More

Set on the Grand canal this restaurant has the perfect setting. The staff are friendly, attentive and knowledgeable about the food and wine they serve, both of which were excellent.

Staying in Castello

Neighborhood Profile
Castello
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime neighborhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.
