Outdoor Dining in Venice

Will be in Venice in July and looking for a restaurant that has both a Grand Canal view and outdoor dining. Price range between 25-30 Euro. pp for entrees.

I know that the restaurant at the Westin Europa and Regina has outdoor seating. It is directly on the Grand Canal, just a few minutes away from Piazza San Marco and across from Santa Maria della Salute. The Terrazza Restaurant on the roof-top of the Hotel Danieli also has outdoor dining; it too is on the Grand Canal, on the Riva degli Schiavoni.

I would just roam around the place until you see something charming that's not too crowded and has an intruiguing menu. You won't find a place with more cafes per footstep than Venice.

As far as I'm concerned, that's half the fun of dining in Venice.

hi, rogfam,

there are good views other than on the grand canal - eg along the Zattere, overlooking giudecca. Metic is dead right - just go for a wander, and avoid like the plague the places with menus in japanese!.

regards, ann

I like views of the smaller canals. On our last trip, from our table we had a view across a narrow canal of a house and its boat garage. The owner left to run an errand and returned about 30 minutes later. Watching him maneuver the boat out/in and getting a peek of the inside of the garage were so interesting. We were also serenaded by a singing accordian player who was riding in a gondola with some tourists. You don't get that on the Grand Canal.

Two small places just off the Rialto Bridge in Campo San Giacometto:
Naranzaria (http://www.naranzaria.it) and Banco Giro. Tables are set out on the stones at canal side. Both of these are more wine bars with food than full-scale restaurants.
