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.

We found this place 5 years ago while walking from the Mezzorbo vaporetti stop to Burano. I was very impressed with the gardens but didn’t know what it was. Soooo, when we decided to come back to Venice, I researched a little and realized it...More

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

A short vaporetto trip from Venice to Burano Island. Set in grounds of fruit, vegetables and art sculptures. Turn right out of the boat station, over a wooden bridge into the grounds through a metal gate. There is a Michelin star restaurant and an Osteria....More

The staff is extraordinarily friendly, the food is delicious, the surroundings are surreal (beautiful), and the location is very quiet. Great if trying to get away from the hustle and bustle of Venice for a while

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.
