Boats are arriving from all over the Venetian Laguna to visit this highlight for gourmets - the Cipriani - on the beautiful isle of Torcello

Locanda Cipriani was all around good, not great. The setting is beautiful so sitting outside on a beautiful day drinking chilled wine made it lovely. But nothing blew me away. The service was good but again, not great. No one was exceptionally friendly or helpful....More

Lunch at Locanda Cipriani is the perfect way to make a visit to Torcello truly memorable. The garden setting is beautiful, the food and service well above average - fine dining at prices that are the same as Venice tourist traps. Speaking of tourist traps,...More

We caught the boat from Burano to Murano and walked the short distance into town. The outside garden area is very large and is shaded by planted gazebos. The menu is varied and the food is exceptionally well cooked and presented.

We visited Torcello specifically to dine here - a long way to go for lunch but definitely worth it for anyone who can carve out a day to an incredible dining experience. Somehow we totally overlooked the ala carte selections and opted for the fixe...More

An exquisite venue sitting outside for a relaxed and exceptional lunch with service that was efficient, friendly and unobtrusive. We ordered a la carte although there were a couple of set menu options and the dishes were beautifully balanced, not too fussy just really well...More

Pricey place. The food is not something you won't forget. But it's much better than in any touristic place anyway. Garden very cozy, service is very very nice and professional. I'd say it's a place to be if you get to Torcello.

If it’s good enough for Hemingway, Princess Di and Elton John, it works for me, and it did. Wonderful setting and simply perfect food with transparent service that happened effortlessly (altho I know it does not). Pair lunch here with a visit to the cathedral...More

Visited as it’s an old haunt of Hemingway’s thought we’d play at old elegance, we weren’t disappointed. Great food, wonderful location fabulous service and comparing to the average price in Venice it didn’t break the bank. Well worth an indulgence.

Stopped at Torcello on the way to Burano to eat lunch. Was just great! I have fresh grilled calamari that was fantastic. The waiter seemed very pleased when I asked him how fresh it was. My husband tried fish lasagna and loved it. Sweet outdoor...More

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.
