The Bistrot de Venise was first opened in 1993. It is a place where people can meet up and savour the Cuisine & Wine as they enjoy figurative arts, poetry, cultural gatherings and a host of other activities dedicated to Venice. …in 1999, the Bistrot de Venise took its concept of blending culture, food and wine from the Veneto region a step further when it began to carry out research into Rare Wines and Historical Venetian Cuisine. …We are still steadfastly continuing along this path today…

    Amazing food, service, everything. They went over and beyond for us, even surprising my son with a special little birthday dessert because they overheard it was his birthday and we had come to Venice for that.

    Loved the food and wine and the service. The service was was excellent :) loved how warm everyone was. Didn’t feel like it was a job to them, they genuinely were keen to ensure their guests had a lovely experience.. loved the wine recommendations too. So generous and so much knowledge, enjoyed trying new wines.

    Bistrot de VeniseResponded on June 4, 2022We are very surprised by the tone and quality of your review. Respecting all the reviews we receive we do not find any suggestion about wrong details to improve in the future, just an angry evaluation of our work, which is much more considered by thousands Guests in the world. However we apologize for the bad time you had and, trying to improve in all senses, we hope to welcome you back to our Restaurant. Very best regards. La direzione

    Historically researched and reinterpreted Venetian dishes. Every dish was meticulously prepared and presented. Food was excellent and staff was attentive but not overbearing. Sommelier provides excellent wine recommendations. Only downside was presence of mosquitoes - but that’s a given in Venice everywhere.

    Food was very good, pricey but not out of the ordinary for what we experienced in Venice. Our only “complaint” is that they had a brochure of their products on all of the dining tables. A high-end restaurant should not be pushing their glass bottles and olive oil to the diner at any point during the meal.

    Bistrot de VeniseResponded on April 11, 2022Dear Hannah we thank you for kind review and explain why we put our brochure: due to the huge number of requests made by our Guests about oils, wines and artistic bottles, prices, deliveries and further details we have been forced to print an exaustive nice brochure that allow us to keep working during the service and leaving our Guests to their own curiosity and decision without forcing anybody. We believe it's a useful-kind way to introduce our selections. best regards, Sergio Fragiacomo

    We booked in early Jan for a Saturday night in late Jan. The restaurant was easy to find, the staff were welcoming and could all speak English (which I was very grateful for as I have very little Italian). The menu was great - a good range of dishes, and we had lovely appetisers and aperitifs. We chose the historic Venetian tasting menu (with paired wines), and were able to substitute some dishes to work around preferences / allergies. The sommelier talked us through the dishes and the paired wines, and we stayed until the restaurant closed. Very, very happy to recommend, a lovely night with delicious food and drinks.

    One of our favorite restaurants of any in the world. The atmosphere, service, food quality, imaginative menu, and thoughtfully prepared seasonal variety are second to none. Such a delight to have Sergio greet us at the door every night, and the stellar, exceptionally knowledgeable and personable staff makes us feel like home each and every time. You’ll appreciate the small touches and attention to detail to each course. Something for everyone’s palate on the menu, Venice can be a seafood lover’s paradise but a steak person’s compromise, but the filet is succulent and can be cut with a butter knife. A must in Venice!

    This is an excellent restaurant. Unfortunately we had a loud, pushy waiter who turned frosty and shut us out after we made it politely clear that we did not want many offered extras. It negatively impacted the tone of an otherwise superb meal. The oysters were fresh and salty, the vegetable soup was delicious and the fried zucchini flowers are the best we have ever eaten. The entrees were outstanding and we particularly recommend the steak. Desserts are great and there is an excellent, thoughtful wine list.
