La Caravella restaurant in Venice can be discovered immediately behind the newly-restored La Fenice theatre, just a few meters from Piazza San Marco. Stepping inside, you will feel as if you have entered an antique sailing ship, with dark wood paneling, capstans and ropes and leaded windows. In summer,La Caravella moves into a flower-filled courtyard complete with original wells, or the lighter courtyard dining room with typical Venetian ambience. The menu is typically Venetian too, with dishes like classic saor, marinated sardines with onions, pine kernels and raisins, fish soup, or oven roast turbot with potatoes and olives. In addition, the chef uses fresh seasonal ingredients to create trendier fare. The excellent wine list features both historical wine producers and smaller boutique vintners. Planning a party? La Caravella welcomes wedding receptions, private dinners, banquets, corporate entertaining, even coffee breaks. The garden seats up to 65 and one of the dining rooms up to 75.

Lovely interior, excellent food and great service. A little pricey but everywhere is in Venice and we thought here was the best food we ate on our 5 day holiday. Need to make a reservation for dinner.

We eat here every time we go to Venice and every time it surprises. The Food is packed full of flavour and beautifully presented. The staff are a huge part of any meal here. They obviously all love what they do, and make each meal here special.

The insides are done out like a ships cabin - makes sense given Venice's maritime heritage I suppose but can make for a rather dark room! The food and service were both really good - good selection of dishes and wine. Probably not so good for children. reservations pretty much essential!

I am always skeptical about dining out on Valentine's Day. I chose the restaurant because it was in our hotel building. It may be expensive, but I feel the food and service are on par with the prices. Besides, it is a lot of effort getting supplies into Venice on a daily basis. I'll just let the pictures tell you...

Food unimaginably good - service effortlessly attentive and charming - absolutely a bargain for what we ate and drank. Will not hesitate to return on my next visit.

We had passed this restaurant dozens of times in our visits to Venice and never thought to venture inside. It is in a very touristy area and I was always concerned that it would be a disappointment. During this last trip we were looking for a close-by restaurant at the last minute and thought we would give it a try.... More

We located it and booked the day before and were told they did 2 sittings -7pm or 9pm which was fine with us. Many who had not booked were being turned away on... More

La Caravella is the Saturnia hotels restaurant that operates almost over a century. The food, service and the ambiance is perfect. A romanthic dinner under candlelight and real taste of Italian cuisine are warrented there. The restaurant has an Michelin excellence certificate 2015. I think that it deserves the cost.

We visited this restaurant in January 2015 on the Friday and it was full so we booked for the Saturday evening. The restaurant decor is wonderful and the waiters made us very welcome one particular waiter had a very good sense of humour and had us chuckling all night. We had the veal carpaccia for starters which was delicious. I... More
