Stunning, delighted with our choice and great service. Yes it's pricey but as long as you as happy to pay for the standard of excellence, then you won't be disappointed. Pretty layout of the restaurant gives a romantic and intimate feeling. Staff seem to be versatile in French, English and happy to correct our Italian!! Not often I'm impressed to... More

One of the best meals I have ever eaten! The restaurant was beautifully decorated for the occasion, and service excellent. A balanced 7 courses, all delicious, served with great attentiveness from the staff. As we had out 5 year old with us, the staff adapted and adjusted his own courses to allow us all to enjoy the meal over almost... More

We arrived at the Carton Hotel after a tiring journey and didn't fancy going out for dinner. Almost reluctantly, we decided to eat in the hotel. What a surprise! The restaurant is attractive, we were greeted warmly and given a choice of table as business was quiet. All food was cooked well, presented with care and most enjoyable. The wine... More

We arranged to have our wedding reception at The Carlton on The Grand Canal with our family of seventeen guests. La Cupola is the restaurant within the hotel. Our plans were made before arrival over several months with Fabio, who was extremely helpful, professional and knowledgeable. He helped us with our questions and accommodated our needs. The food was absolutely... More

La Cupola is the restaurant connected to the Hotel Carlton on the Grand Canal, which is where we were staying whilst in Venice. Thanks to me vastly underestimating just how long it takes a water taxi to get from the airport to the Grand Canal, we had arrived at the hotel with barely enough time to get changed for our...

Dinner for 4 - nice surroundings but service is a little pretentious. Food was good but not great - lobster medallions were not very good but beef fillet was well cooked. It is quite expensive - €300 including wine, service charge and tip.

The food was ok, but the service was sooooo bad! The waiter, Fabritzio or so could not be bothered to care to serve us. He overcharged us with cover charge for 6 persons even though not everybody at the table was eating; and after he dind't even bring the bread to all of us. He brought soup and main at... More

Staying in Santa Croce

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Croce
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district) when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring cars and buses close to the center of Venice. Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes with energy from travelers and students. Historic palaces and former industrial buildings house some departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture universities. On the Fondaco dei Turchi, Venice's Museum of Natural History offers Venetians prehistoric thrills, plus an overview of lagoon fish and wildlife. The Grand Canal, northern boundary of Santa Croce, is lined with palaces and decorated by the tall green dome of San Simeon Piccolo. Ca' Pesaro attracts Venetians to its contemporary art exhibitions. The Grand Canal exposes only one face of these buildings. On the opposite side, the palace often interacts with a square or a busy street to represent its neighbourhood identity.
