Really nice place, cosy and warm atmosphere with a nice terrace and garden; the menu is rich in choices .. we were in 7 and together tried a fair amount of dishes .. all were delicious ! Great ingredient and perfect cooking. The service was great. A place to go and go and go again!

Fantastic food and service.Could not do more to make the evening better. The risotto starter was special and the rasberry tart to die for

We enjoyed private dining in La Meridiana, one of the best restaurants in the area. The food is outstanding and local, with the seasonal specialities you'd expect from a restaurant of this calibre. HIGHLY recommended!

As another reviewer said, "How could we have missed this?" Ambience, service and above all food are excellent, and the prices, although not cheap, are very much in line with the quality of the experience.

The personnel is outstanding, they will make you feel great as soon as you walk their door. The menu has many tasty Venetian and Piemontese selections but don't worry if you can't make up your mind, you... More

This restaurant has been here for 'ever' . The Fantin family runs it, first daddy and mom were running , now the son is in the kitchen and Antonella is a pretty professional lady that makes you feel at home immediately.
