Magnifico

The view is so good you barely notice the food. But the food is also excellent: classic Venetian Italian, done with subtle flair. In general, if you want to eat really well in Venice, you have to be 1, very lucky, or 2, very rich or 3, staying in a five star hotel with a very nice restaurant... read more

Excellent food and superb service which is to be expected in an empty restaurant, but it was December. We went for our Wedding Anniversary Lunch and the view is good.

This all time famous restaurant didn't fail on us. I can't say it was one of the best meals I have ever had but I would say the entire experience was one of a kind. First off, once you step in the Hotel Danieli, the magnificent interior was simply breathtaking. And this Venetian vibe took us on a ride all... More

Had great expectations that fell smack on its face : Tired decor, tired staff... the food was almost bland, I think either the chef is bored or was on a holiday. the service was inattentive as the waiter forgot to bring the wine pairing for 2 dishes & had to be reminded. the hostess dropped my shawl & dragged in...

This restaurant is situated on the top floor of the Hotel Danieli, six stories above the Grand Canal with the most magnificent view in Venice. While the food was terrific, truly "fine dining", and the view was mesmerizing, the staff is what marks this restaurant as one of the best. Simply the most professional, knowledge staff one could hopeful. A... More

Because of previous visits to Danieli we had no doubt when booking again and bringing our friends for a fine diner. Was it the end of the season and therefore enormous fatigue of the staff? Was it our casual chic dressing? I keep wondering what could have caused this disappointing disaster. It was like dining in a tourist trap: unpleasant... More

This is a view to die for. The service is obviously very good because you pay for it. Prices for everything are high to the normal person. It is worth it for the view even if you just go for a drink and take pictures.

Staying in Castello

Neighborhood Profile
Castello
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.
