If you plan to visit the island of Torcello during your trip to Venice, this is the place to plan to have an unforgettable meal. Torcello is a very quiet island, with a canal and pathway leading to the Basilica and chapel (with exquisite hand-blown...More

And that about sums it up. You could eat a grilled cheese sandwich on the glorious patio on a warm, sunny day in idyllic Torcello and be perfectly happy. As it is, you’ll be paying dearly for uninspired food and sullen service. So go with...More

Boats are arriving from all over the Venetian Laguna to visit this highlight for gourmets - the Cipriani - on the beautiful isle of Torcello

Locanda Cipriani was all around good, not great. The setting is beautiful so sitting outside on a beautiful day drinking chilled wine made it lovely. But nothing blew me away. The service was good but again, not great. No one was exceptionally friendly or helpful....More

Lunch at Locanda Cipriani is the perfect way to make a visit to Torcello truly memorable. The garden setting is beautiful, the food and service well above average - fine dining at prices that are the same as Venice tourist traps. Speaking of tourist traps,...More

We caught the boat from Burano to Murano and walked the short distance into town. The outside garden area is very large and is shaded by planted gazebos. The menu is varied and the food is exceptionally well cooked and presented.

Pricey place. The food is not something you won't forget. But it's much better than in any touristic place anyway. Garden very cozy, service is very very nice and professional. I'd say it's a place to be if you get to Torcello.

Simple, elegant furnishings combined with polite, attentive service and culinary delights based on reinterpretations of typical Venetian dishes which created the "Cipriani style" are the ingredients that have gone into the success of each and every one of Giuseppe Cipriani's restaurants. Still today, they make the Locanda Cipriani in Torcello a cut above the rest. Unlike the surrounding triumphant landscapes with the churches and the blooms in the garden, the Locanda Cipriani, designed as a rustic maison d'hôte, receives its guests in a simple, almost austere environment dominated by wooden ceilings, terracotta bricks covering the walls decorated in Venetian bas-reliefs, and old copper pots and pitchers hanging here and there. he restaurant has two large rooms, both with large windows overlooking the garden. Diners can sit on the outdoor terrace in summer. The garden, is open from the beginning of spring right through to autumn. The blooming daisies, tulips, roses and dahlias, the golden pomegranate trees and the fiery red of the Virginia creeper vines combine to provide beautiful surroundings for the restaurant.. Every day, the "maitre pâtissier" creates a vast assortment of sweet snacks, bavarois, cream cakes, meringues, sorbets, biscuits and chocolates. Our maître carefully selects a range of Italian wines - with an emphasis on those from Friuli and Veneto regions - to provide the perfect accompaniment to the food. The kitchen, headed up by chef Cristian Angiolin, not only serves dishes invented by the Cipriani family and now considered classics - such as 'carpaccio' of raw meat and John Dory 'alla Carlina' - but also offers a whole range of dishes featuring fish, vegetables, home-made pasta and rice.
