Savor a memorable night out in Venice and learn about the Veneto region’s excellent wines. Follow directions to the restaurant near St Mark’s Square, chosen for its acclaimed menu, wine list and atmosphere. Settle in at a private table and whet your appetite with a local aperitif.
Peruse the menu and make your selection for each of the meal’s four courses. The menu changes seasonally, but you can always expect traditional Venetian fare featuring rich flavors and many fresh seafood options. See the Itinerary below to browse a sample menu.
A sommelier will visit your table and help guide you through the restaurant’s extensive wine list featuring varietals from the Veneto winemaking region. Sheltered by the Alps from northern Europe’s cooler climates, Veneto enjoys ideal growing conditions for refreshing whites and easy-drinking reds.
With each course, sip and savor a different glass, such as tangy, cherry-noted valpolicella or a drier amarone, which is fermented with dried grapes for added complexity. To accompany dessert, you can toast your night out with a sparkling glass of prosecco.
Cap off your meal with cup of aromatic Italian coffee if you wish. After dining for about 2.5 hours, you are welcome to linger at the bar or head out to explore the enchanted Venice evening on your own.
