We were able to get in for dinner with only a couple hours notice (it helps that Italians eat so late in the evening). Da Fiore has an intimate interior that, although bustling during our meal, was still relaxing and pleasant. The dining room had a nice mix of international tourists and Italians. We enjoyed the risotto for two that... More

i went there for dinner. The place is very hard to find, the decor is very pleasing, service is very good but not perfect. The food - its good, i didnt find anything amazing or too innovative about it. Personally, i think you can find other restaurants in Venice that are as good and cost half.

Our third time for da Fiore because we just can't stay away. Small, intimate, romantic, and a bit off the beaten path...but that makes it fun. Food is outstanding and presentation is too. Knowledgeable staff...especially on wine recommendations. We will go back for our fourth visit next time we are in Venice. There is one table on a small terrace... More

I was there in April, 2013. The Food is Perfection. I fell in Love with Mara Martin's Food and have to let everyone know what an Amazing Woman she is. Also, Maurizio Martin is a Wonderful Host! I enjoyed learning what wines I should pick to go with my food from the excellent sommelier! I will remember that dinner and... More

I would NOT eat here at any price. I am very happy to spend a lot for an excellent dining experience with my wife, but this was just awful. Massive, over sized portions seemed intended to compensate for poorly executed, uninspired food. The rather boring food completely lacked finesse. And it is just ridiculously overpriced; really just unforgivable for the... More

We visit Da Fiore twice a year for birthdays and anniversaries and have done for years. The food has never ever let us down and the staff are attentive and helpful. If you love Venice then do try this restaurant - its a very special place.

We were recommended to visit this restaurant as it was mentioned it had 2 Michelin stars. We were very disappointed. It was generally very stuffy with waiters in old fashioned bow ties and black suits. The food was very average. My partner is gluten allergic and they were informed of this on booking the table and when we entered the... More

Loved this restaurant! I fell in love with the Moretti Murana Bora water glasses, they are all so beautiful! The food was high quality - one of the better restaurants in Venice. We sat at a table next to Rock Legend, Richie Sambora. That was a treat! The Italians were not amused by his frequent F bombs, but we were... More

Another fantastic dining experience in Venice. Not quite sure where to start but this was fantastic all around. My wife and I had one of the most lovely evenings ever here and would recommend it to anyone with good taste in food. They specialise in seafood and weren't afraid to recommend what they felt were their best dishes when we... More

First, book well in advance. Second, go there to enjoy your evening and dinner. Forget about possible expenses. This is undoubtedly one of Venice best restaurants. Whatever we tried was top level, and prepared meticulously with the proper attention. Fish and seafood plates were excellent (including an astonishing eel). The wine list is endless, but you are not pushed to... More
