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.

A lovely family experience on the patio

Do Leoni is in the Hotel Londra which is a Relais and Chateau establishment so needless to say, it is very good. You are probably wondering how good. It is not a restaurant that has a great chef at its helm, no Grant Achalz , Thomas Keller, Daniel Boulard, or the Roca Bros. of Spain but it does... read more

The service, the pricing, and the food is complete garbage here. Totally not worth the price or anyone's time. My girlfriend got a burrata with toast and I got a sandwich and it took over 45 minutes to get our food.

Just a few hundred yards from St Mark's Square, on the beautiful Riva degli Schiavoni, with a spectacular view across the Canal of San Giorgio Maggiore, this hotel restaurant was well worth a visit. The service was exceptional as was the food and drink. Okay, it wasn't cheap but you get what you pay for and what we got was... More

The bar/restaurant is part of the Hotel Londra Palace. We stopped here on our last day in town for drinks, after remarking how beautiful the building facade looked on mulitple occasions. We each ordered a glass of white wine, and received a large plate of potato chips, green olives, and small red peppers to snack on. Service was prompt and... More

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

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.
