Description: 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.

Everything from the service to the atmosphere here is amazing, it was our second visit as we enjoyed it so much the first time. I would reccomend booking in advance, but there are more than willing to fit you in wherever possible. The food is first class and the staff were friendly and very attentive. We spent most of the...

Our best meal in Venice. Nice outdoor seating as well as formal indoor dining. Service was amazing and food was even better. Highly recommend for a special night out in Venice.

After reading reviews on here, Do Leoni was on my 'list' of restaurants to visit. With no reservation needed my husband and I enjoyed an amazing lunch here. In fact, my husband has not stopped raving about it since we got back telling his colleagues at work/friends. I had the Ginger and Prawn Risotto and he said it's the best... More

We had lunch at the restaurant twice. The food was delicious and its location is perfect for people watching. Service was good and the linens on the tables adds to the elegant overall feeling.

Not bad, but not cheap. Perfect service and the best place in the center of the Venice. Fresh seafood, good vine. Nice atmosphere. My wife has been happy. Near San Marco. This restoraunt is the part of the hotel Do Leoni.

Our food was delicious , the setting gorgeous outside, inside bar trendy and comfortable. Wine list great, received good suggestions but I felt the service was a little distant , not personal enough. But good . Just cold.

Very good service. Menu selections were pretty good, but very similar to other good restaurants in Venice. Great location. Quality of food was excellent. Pricey, but it's a hotel restaurant and it's in Venice.

Stayed at Londra Palace and had lunch at Do Leoni upon our arrival. We sat out on the beautiful ivy and floral covered patio overlooking the lagoon - gorgeous! Lunch was a spectacularly presented shrimp salad that was as delicious as it was beautiful!
