We wanted to go to the main hotel but had just been up see glass blowing in Murano so we went to Locanda instead. I suspected it might be a bit overpriced and ordinary. I could not have been more wrong. We ate outside beside...More

Visiting Torcello on a fine sunny day in late February we had a simple lunch in the garden of Locanda Cipriani. The setting with the 11th century cathedral as a backdrop was perfect. The service could not have been better and the zuppa di pesce

Please do not forget a 10 euro cover per person they do not tell you they charge until you see the bill. There are several restaurants to choose from on the island. The food is very average.

This was our one special meal during our trip to Venice. With a roaring fire greeting you and staff in white jackets serving the best Italian food, you can't go wrong. Book in advance but please do go. You won't be disappointed.

In my experience all restaurants, if they have a menu on their web site, usually have a 'Tipical' example. As has been already suggested, ask them to e-mail a copy.

Simple, elegant furnishings combined with polite, attentive service and culinary delights based on reinterpretations of typical Venetian dishes which created the "Cipriani style" are the ingredients that have gone into the success of each and every one of Giuseppe Cipriani's restaurants. Still today, they make the Locanda Cipriani in Torcello a cut above the rest. Unlike the surrounding triumphant landscapes with the churches and the blooms in the garden, the Locanda Cipriani, designed as a rustic maison d'hôte, receives its guests in a simple, almost austere environment dominated by wooden ceilings, terracotta bricks covering the walls decorated in Venetian bas-reliefs, and old copper pots and pitchers hanging here and there. he restaurant has two large rooms, both with large windows overlooking the garden. Diners can sit on the outdoor terrace in summer. The garden, is open from the beginning of spring right through to autumn. The blooming daisies, tulips, roses and dahlias, the golden pomegranate trees and the fiery red of the Virginia creeper vines combine to provide beautiful surroundings for the restaurant.. Every day, the "maitre pâtissier" creates a vast assortment of sweet snacks, bavarois, cream cakes, meringues, sorbets, biscuits and chocolates. Our maître carefully selects a range of Italian wines - with an emphasis on those from Friuli and Veneto regions - to provide the perfect accompaniment to the food. The kitchen, headed up by chef Cristian Angiolin, not only serves dishes invented by the Cipriani family and now considered classics - such as 'carpaccio' of raw meat and John Dory 'alla Carlina' - but also offers a whole range of dishes featuring fish, vegetables, home-made pasta and rice.
