Buon Appetito: The 5 Best Hotel Restaurants in Venice

Liz Humphreys | February 01, 2018

Many hotels in Venice don’t have in-house restaurants. But the ones on our list are happy exceptions: Not only do they have their own places to dine, but they’re also special enough to make them worth a stop for the food and the setting, whether on the water or in a fabulous garden.


JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa

Why it made the list

The first choice at Dopolavoro Dining Room is: to eat indoors, or out? The second choice: to order the tasting menu of five courses, or 10? No matter what you choose, the bill will be high, but the experience (including the 20-minute sail to the hotel's private island) will be worth it.

Belmond Hotel Cipriani

Why it made the list

Pure extravagance. If that’s what you’re after for your Veni Read More


Hotel Danieli

Why it made the list

Come to Terrazza Danieli for the phenomenal views across the lagoon—some of the best in Venice—and stay for seasonal modern Venetian food and inspired wine choices.
