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.

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!

The Do Leoni in the Londra Palace Hotel was next to our hotel and received great reviews. We have to agree with the others. This was our best dinner in Venice. The food is expensive but worth it along with the great service from the wait staff. The weather was nice so we sat on the terrace on the waterfront.... More

What a wonderful meal to end our trip! A leisurely dinner with great service and attention. Save room for the soufflé - a definite must - even if you're full.

I came to the restaurant at the Hotel Londra Palace (specifically called Ristorante Do Leoni) with my family last month. We came to it based on a recommendation of a friend, and I have to say that we were not disappointed at all. To start, the location is perfect. Just around the corner from St Marks but not surrounded by... More

Family of 4 (children in early 20s) went to dinner here wanting a nice outdoor terrace (beautiful flowers in baskets all around the terrace), people watching (Venice's non stop parade just beyond the flowers) and good food and wine - and we got all 3. The service was superb, in fact, we really had 4 different servers including the sommelier... More
