My husband and I embarked to Le Calandre while staying in nearby Venice. While it was a bit of a haul to reach it, it was worth the trek. The restaurant is as dark and foreboding as many people say, and we enjoyed the drama. Service was fantastic and friendly, and the food was divine. Nothing in particular stands out... More

Have your coffee standing at the bar, and pay less. Otherwise, stay for the sunset. It's worth the price!

We were living near Padua and decided last minute to go to Le Calandre for lunch. We had just been at Osteria Francescana and was fun to contrast the two experiences. The team at Le Calandre seemed to have more passion and energy. They prepared a custom tasting menu for us - each dish tasted great, was well thought out,... More

One of the best meals of my 77 y/o life. Every aspect was extraordinary including the glassware which cost me a fortune to bring home. If you are a true foodie, a 2 hour drive is worth your while. not to be missed MATT SLOAN
