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.

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.

We were staying at Hotel Londra Palace on our recent visit to Venice to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and decided to have our first evening meal at De Leoni. The food and service was excellent. The risotto with quail's leg and truffles and wild boar ravioli were delicious as was the lamb with pumpkin puree and fillet of beef.... More

Probably because we entered 15 minutes before closing for lunch but the food was very average, wine expensive and staff subpar. Guaranteed better restaurants in Venice with a view at more favorable price point.

Had an absolutely superb meal. The scampi and sardine starters were both excellent, the lobster pasta and wild boar pasta were sublime and the lamb and filet of beef were melt in the mouth. Should have stopped there but the desserts were also delicious! Recommend to anyone looking for high class cuisine, beautifully presented food and impeccable service!

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.
