We attempted to make a reservation and were unsuccessful but managed to get a lovely table by walking in, which is apparently unusual. The outdoor patio is beautiful and I appreciated their stated policy of no cell phones, although many patrons didn't abide by it....More

It was a couple of years since our last visit but good to see that standards are just as high and good too to see some familiar faces waiting at tables. Meals are high end dining with prices to match but well worth the extravagance

La Caravella provided a wonderful evening in the atrium. The food was creative and very nicely prepared and presented. The service was attentive but never intrusive. The setting was relaxing and enjoyable. We were pleased to find both traditional and inventive choices across the menu....More

Didn't eat at restaurant but don't overlook the bar! Hard to find a good bar, this has the goods. Cozy, variety of drinks. Limited list of wines by the glass though.

The food was superb as was the service. The manager Nicola was very friendly and showed us all around the restaurant and hotel. The last review I read is total nonsense. The restaurant can only be rated as excellent!!!!

Dear kmo1989, I’m sorry that you didn’t particularly enjoy your dinner at 'La Caravella' restaurant. I’m also sorry that you didn’t like our 'steamed spider crab with extra virgin olive oil emulsion': it is a typical Venetian plate whose price is justified by the extraordinary...More

Helen B
Has anyone made a booking with La Caravella through "the fork/trip advisor" website? Am I likely to have a definite booking, even though I have confirmation, although not direct from the restaurant. Does it need a phone call as well to the restaurant? Anyone who can offer advice would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Description
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.
