Best Clam & Mussels pasta ever. Its sidewalk bar seemed to be air conditioned during a warm/humid August afternoon. My Gin and Tonic was huge and refreshing.

If what you want is food that has a touch of the Chef's creative side, the pleasure of a great Canalside location, and a menue that has something for everyone - this is the place. The service was fantastic, we started with a glass of Prosecco at the nearby Cafe, and took our bottle to enjoy over dinner. From the... More

Our hotel was very near this restaurant and looked really good, so we tried dinner and were not disappointed. From the House recommended sparkling and appetizer to our main dishes everything was prepared with care and quality. My husband had the Filet and thought is was the best steak he has had on this trip.

Took my wife here for lunch for her birthday. It was expensive (as expected) and the food whilst fresh and delicious, was very small servings. You definitely need to eat 3 courses to be full and expect to pay Euros 200+ for that. There are nicer places to eat in Venice.

On our last night in Venice we wanted to go for a really nice meal, somewhere that had a view of the water. We'd walked along the front of Venice from St Marks square everyday and passed the Do Leoni Restaurant many times and it looked so beautiful with the flowers, giant sweets at the doorway and view of the...

We went to the restaurant for dinner. There are several restaurants in this prime location, and this one looked really nice from outside. The staff was nice, and the atmosphere was wonderful. The food was well decorated, but the taste was average (or even below average). The bread was excellent though. We were disappointed. The price was quite high.

Everything was delicious especially the Scampi tail with avocado. Just beware of the sufle, they offer it at the begining but skip to mention that they charge €22/person... And it is not as tasty as imagined.

It's a great place to people watch and a good menu. The staff were unobtrusive. At breakfast it serves the best scrambled eggs I've tasted.

The food is nice and the service attentive. The cocktails are also good. It's pricey, at the borderline of bad value for money. That being said, expect to pay around 100€-120€ per person for first, second and dessert with one drink.

We had an amazing meal at this restaurant situated right beside St Marco's Square on the waterfront in Venice. The ambience is romantic and perfect, the service is impeccable and the meals are amazing. Their attention to detail in regard to presentation of the meal and service are impressive. Highly recommend this restaurant!

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.

Staying in Castello

Neighborhood Profile
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.
