Great great rivisited venetian food, in an informal but cosy place and atmosphere! Start with an aperitif on the canal and then dinner in the internal garden.More

We had the chef’s choice for dinner. Which meant you left your choice for each course in the hands of the chef. Each course was paired with wine. This was our first night in Italy and boy was it the right choice for us. We...More

Creative and delicious cuisine. Bread was great, crusty, whole grain, with a touch of nutty sweetness.

Truly fantastic food and wine. Inexplicably the place was not packed out - surely not because it is less than 5 minutes from the the main centre - and we counted ourselves lucky to come across this place. Everything about the venue is pitched perfectly...More

The Venissa Estate is situated on the island of Mazzorbo, which together with Torcello and Burano, forms an archipelago of nature, colours, art and flavours at the heart of Native Venice. In front of the lagoon, under the shelter of the portico looking out on to the vineyard is the Osteria Contemporanea. To eat, the reinterpretation of the recipes of the ladies of Burano made with the harvest of our gardens and the catch of the day. To drink, a selection of the best wines of the Tri-Veneto region. To see, the colors of the lagoon and the vineyard that is reborn in springtime.
