Description: In the heart of Venice, close to Rialto Bridge and ten minutes from S.Marco Square, you will find the restaurant Da Mario alla Fava opened since 1960. The menu is based on recipes from traditional Venetian cuisine, recipes reworked and lightened for today's preferred tastes, with the interjection of creative reinterpretation, fresh seafood dishes as well as a tasty vegan menu. Fine desserts are home made, created with special attention at the moment. In summer the restaurant has a beautiful terrace beside a typical Venice Canal, ideal for a candle light dinner. One wall of the restaurant is lined with hundreds of photographs of famous celebrites who have enjoyed Da Mario alla Fava. Recalling Mario alla Fava motto: "If you are sad and bored with life, you will rediscover joy at Da Mario alla Fava". Nel cuore di Venezia, a soli due minuti dal Ponte di Rialto e meno di dieci dalla Piazza S. Marco, si trova il Ristorante da Mario alla fava. Il ristorante aprì le sue porte nel lontano 1960. La cucina alterna piatti della tradizione classica veneziana opportunamente rivisitati e resi più leggeri, secondo il gusto attuale, a preparazione più creative, principalmente specialità di pesce e una ricca alternativa vegan. I dessert sono tutti fatti in casa e particolarmente curati. In estate è possibile cenare al lume di candela in una terrazza adiacente un tipico canale veneziano. Una delle pareti del ristorante è ricoperta da centinaia di foto che ritraggono personaggi famosi passati da Mario alla Fava. Il nostro motto è: "Se sei triste e della vita hai noia, da Mario alla Fava troverai la gioia"

This was one of those meals where you would return to a city to repeat the experience. Good food, good atmosphere, great service. We found it expensive, but the meal and wine warranted it.

I spent my birthday dinner at Da Mario Alla Fava. The Restaurant ensured I felt special and welcome. They gave us an aperatif and drink then the most delicious fresh flavored succulent food you could imagine! I had an eggplant, mozzerella, tomato grilled tower with pesto sauce on the side so good. Then roasted turbot out of this world. The desserts are made fresh in front of you and you can hardly decide they all sound so good. They brought my dessert with a candle and the whole place sang happy birthday. I will never forget it! I thoroughly recommend this wonderful, delightfully decored and succulent dishes restaurant.

Really nice recommended restaurant in the heart of Venice. The food was excellent but the service not to the same standard. Very authentic however and would definitely go again on our next visit. A little expensive. Suggest you book in advance.
