The food was very good, all of it. We had 2 kids of fish, sea bass tartare, tortellini and tiramisu and everything was very tasty and worth the money. The staff was friendly but kind of official and not really quick. That was a weak...More

My partner and I dined in the romantic courtyard of La Caravella restaurant on a beautiful warm summer evening. The food was delicious, the service attentive and responsive and the environment perfect. A melt in the mouth fillet steak stole the show.

La Caravella restaurant in Venice can be discovered immediately behind the newly-restored La Fenice theatre, just a few paces from the 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, you may not step inside at all as 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 orast 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.
