“Good classic choice”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Da fiore is one of the most famous restaurant in vernice (pay attention because there is another fiore in town).
It is a classic restaurant with a classic menù that is now traying to reinvent the kitchen with a kind of molecular cooking.
It is not my favourite spot in town even if there is anything wrong with the food or the service, simply seems to me it is lacking of personality

“Excellent experience”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

A group of us shared an excellent Christmas Eve meal. Across seven people and several courses, nothing was amiss. In addition, the service was flawless and the atmosphere was very comfortable. Yes, it's expensive, but well worth it.

“Quality above all”
Reviewed December 25, 2012 via mobile

First of all... As someone properly wrote in a former review: THIS IS THE "FIORE" YOU FIND ON MICHELIN, ETC. Nothing to do with another fiore close to San Marco square.
I have seen this place growing through the time, service and prices, but this is worth a visit and fully deserved: the quality of the materials is unbeatable, and the way Mara cooks them is superb. Let Mr. martin drive you through the menu, and if you are brave enough (stomach, not wallet! ) try the 7-course menu @ 140 euro per person. The wine list is extensive and pretty expensive, but a wide choice of high quality wines by the glass can help you in terms of budget. One of my preferred restaurants in venice, in a wonderful secluded area (easy to reach from rialto bridge, by the way)

“Nothing to shout about.”
Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

Expected a fabulous meal after reading the reviews and considering its pricing. Was disappointed. Still, the place was crowded, unlikely to get a seat without booking. Note that it will only take in reservations if credit card details are given.

“Wonderful first night in Venice...”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

My husband and I never spend this much money on a meal, but it was well worth it. Unbelievable service from the owner, waiter, and wine steward. The bacon shrimp toast with tomato and fried rosemary was awesome...as was the Sicillian dessert wine and pumpkin tiramisu. Being from Texas, I don't think the Venetians understood our open sense of humor....or maybe they didn't care to :-)....but the meal was truly amazing.
