Went there for a drink...we had a few cocktaiks that where really good in reasonable prices for Venice! We had a look at the food menu and prices were high( probably normal for venice), but we didn't eat cause we had dinner a bit earlier.

A great place and exceptional Italian food. The ravioli was exceptional and fillet perfectly cooked. Extra Vegetables with the sea bass was only disappointment, had to be replaced as served cold. Didn't diminish the overall experience. Tiramisu was best in Venice and the wine was excellent. Must book ahead.

It seems pretty packed but we try our luck anyway, went in was greeted by a guy waiter checked if we had made reservations, to which we said no and he... More

I cannot recommend this place highly enough. I came here at midnight in the rain looking like a drowned rat, looking for some food for a wife (mine!) who had been asleep in bed all day ill, and was suddenly awake and starving. Despite having just shut their food service, when I explained my plight, they told me to wait,... More

A beautiful niche restaurant with a vintage flare and exquisite dishes. Get the tiramisu for dessert even if you feel too full. You don't want to miss that piece of heaven!!!!

Ate here last night after making a long-standing booking. We had a lovely greeting to the restaurant and the attentive staff where Delightful from start to finish. The decor is charming and has echoes of the dining room mess of an old sailing vessel. The menu has a very nice balance and it was very easy for us to find... More

We went there upon recommendation from our hotel after a long day venting flight and late arrival. This restaurant is not for such occasions. Take your time and know before hand that they act as a gastronomical restaurant in a pirate ship looking place. Their food looks delicious on plate but is so expensive we opted for pasta primo piatto,... More

When visiting Venice make sure you have a reservation for dinner at La Caravella, you won't be disappointed. The decor of the restaurant is nautical so it's not surprising fish is a speciality but they offer meat dishes. If you can find room for a desert the Tiramisu is to die for, so delicious. Meals cooked to perfection and beautifully... More

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.

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
