We really enjoyed the whole evening. Four courses, two botlles of vino £143.00. Very reasonable concidering its the best on Lido.

The restaurant lives up to its No 1 slot on trip advisor. The vegetarian tasting menu was gorgeous, we had a limited budget for wine and weren't disappointed with the recommendation. This is a must try whilst visiting the Lido.

Amazing food, and great service from start to finish. Great choice on the menu that is a world apart from the usual pizza and pasta offerings in other restaurants on the Lido.

Ate here last night after reading the recommendations on the web. Everything was faultless. The sommelier had an abundance of knowledge and was full of passion about the wines. He was spot on with his choice for us. Service, Food and wine 10/10.

The meeting point between the island's people and the tourists, the contact point beetwen venetian and tuscan cuisine, the arrival point where you can find warmth and good wishes. This is the atmosphere of La Tavernetta, a small restaurant near the famous Hotel Excelsior and the Lido's Casinò Palace. An historical restaurant, frame of the first edition of Venice International Film Festival and of the later ones. Since 1996 Riccardo, tuscan chef member of F.I.C. (Federazione Italiana Cuochi) for several years, and Adriana, born in Venice who had worked like chef in many hotels and restaurants, have been the owners. Riccardo and Adriana have been able to coniugate passion and quality, teaching them to their son Ottavio, manager since 2009.
