Da Raffaele Restaurant

Eat with views.

One of the best ways to eat in this town is to do so on any of its canals. The city has several restaurants with terraces, but this is certainly one of the most welcoming. A short distance west of St Mark’s Square, close to Calle Contarini Corfu, you can quickly find the restaurant. On entering, you will see it has a very attractive indoor dining room, dominated by a fireplace and decorated with various classical objects. But despite its pleasant interior, don’t hesitate to find a place on the terrace. From there you will see on one side Ponte delle Ostreghe and on the other the mouth of the Grand Canal. Enjoying your food from there is virtually assured thanks to the environment offered by its pleasant position, especially if it's daytime for eating while watching the characteristic traffic of the gondolas. But if you go for dinner, the situation becomes more romantic, accompanied by the nightly serenades in the canal. Once you are seated, you will see that the menu offers food from Venice and the Veneto region in all its varieties. Although it meets everyone’s taste, the highlight is its seafood.
