Description: 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.

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 prix offering - exceptional gazpacho and everything else was quite good, but should we be fortunate enough to return we would give the entire menu a good look.

When you dine well and often, you may not always remember the food but we will long remember the afternoon we spent under a grape arbor nestled into an exquisite garden with a glass of wine, attentive service and perfectly prepared food on this charming island.

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 cooked fish. We did have aperitifs, wine, 3 courses and coffee so it was an expensive lunch but good value for the quality and ambience. Well worth taking your time over and one of the best meals I’ve enjoyed.

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 and their Byzantine mosaics and you have the makings of a perfect day out from the heat and crowds of Venice. Loved it!

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.
