Food & Drink

Venice offers a wide range of eating options from local snacks to elegant and world-famous restaurants where you can dine well and experience local cuisines. The terrace restaurant of the Danieli offers some of the best tables in the city, with incomparable views over the Venetian lagoon, and is perfect for a celebratory meal. Seafood features widely and there are numerous high-quality fish restaurants with a dazzling collection of the day's fresh catch. Wash it all down with the wonderful array of local wine on offer, produced in the Veneto region.
