Description: 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.

Beautiful place with excellent food and service in Torcelo island. This is a small but charming island that you go for few hours...and mostly to have lunch or dinner in one of the few lovely restaurants. This one was recommended by a friend and we had a surprisingly enjoyable lunch. Stayed at the varanda looking at the garden full of flowers and birds. Several very professional waiters came promptly to take our drinks orders, to bring us appetizers and help us with the menu. Wine selection was excellent. We took the menu Cipriano, gnocchi as a entree and sea bass, and the menu Torcelo, gazpacho and cold veil. Both were divine! For deserts, go for the best miille-feille ever.

It is not an easy commute to Torcello from Venice (100 to 150 euros by a "fast" water taxi or 7.50 by the public taxi which makes stops on several other islands like Murano and Burano on the way out and back and is much slower, almost an hour) but if you have the time and/patience, the food and service is always excellent. Many celebrities and eaten here as well and signed photos from Earnest Hemingway, Jimmy Carter, Charles and Di, to name a few have their pictures on the wall.

When I'm in Venice, I always try to find a way to be here for lunch or dinner

Good food, excellent service and a beautiful setting. Lunch on the terrace or under the pergola is a real luxury and a Bellini cocktail as an aperitif is a must. The island of Torcello is magical and lunchnhere was one of the highlights of our trip.

Catch the ferry to Tochello and visit this restaurant. The garden (a must to sit in ) is intoxicating on a hot day. The scent and lush fauna add to the feeling of exclusivity. Food and wine is lovely, not 5 star, but a solid 4. It's expensive (very) but a lovely treat. Hot tip... ignore Murana and Burana, they are under rated tourist traps! Ugh... heaving and not worth it. Take a lazy summer afternoon at Cipriani, is a wonderful experience.
