With two friends, I have just experienced the most beautiful lunch in Torcello. The food was delicious and the service attentive and unfussied, not cheap but well worth every penny. The garden with its views of the nearby tower is delightful.

Catch the ferry to Tochello and visit this restaurant. The garden (a must to sit in ) is intoxicating on a hot day. The scent and lush fauna add to the feeling of exclusivity. Food and wine is lovely, not 5 star, but a solid...More

Don't be fooled by the garden setting when you walk in. This restaurant is most definitely a classic tourist trap. The menu and wine list are extremely limited and they take every short cut imaginable in preparation of the food. Cotoletta (veal) arrived without the...More

You need to check with the restaurant directly through their website. However, I understand the restaurant may be closed in January & February.

Hello Russell T! I cannot say for certain there are gluten free items, however, I would be greatly surprised to find a lack of them as the chef and the wait staff are eager to please. I can tell you there are lots of... More

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.
