"Fiola at Dopolavoro Venezia" features a sophisticated yet luxurious ambiance coupled with striking architectural details that date back to the 1920s.
The Fiola Venezia menu, a nostalgic twist on traditional Venetian cuisine prepared with a modern presentation, will combine locally sourced seasonal ingredients from Venice’s famous, centuries-old Rialto Market, the Adriatic Sea, as well as vegetables and exclusive olive oil from the private island’s own vegetable garden and olive grove.

    This restaurant is more than just a place to eat. The entire evening was an experience. Unlike many Michelin level places, the portion sizes were very reasonable and we left full, not hungry. The food was excellent, the flavors danced on your tongue, sensing several different ones in the same bite. Presentation was beautiful, the atmosphere relaxed, overall a wonderful evening. We went all out and got the 5 course tasting menu. I highly recommend the gamble, the chef knows what he is doing!

    Excellent food and service, but difficult to find if you aren’t staying at the JW Marriott. It is not at the location of the pin in Apple Maps or the Open Table directions. The restaurant is on the oppose corner of the island from the JW Marriott. My water taxi driver dropped me at the wrong dock and I had a bit of a walk to get to the restaurant. I ordered the five course tasting menu with wine pairings. A “wow!" dish: lobster ravioli in a ginger butter sauce with chives from the garden plus a large chunk of lobster tail on top. It was fantastic! I enjoyed everything except the pigeon and foie gras. Well-prepared but anti-climactic because I'm generally not a fan of foie gras or pigeon. (Although, the server humorously assured me the pigeon was not from St. Mark's Square.) I took a few bites and left the rest. The lesson here is to scan the à la carte menu for things I don't like but might show up in the tasting menu and then mention them when ordering a "mystery" tasting. This was their second night open to the public and there were still some kinks to work out. When it came time to pay the bill there were problems with the credit card machine. The couple at the table next to mine also had issues with paying their check. It would not accept my Bonvoy American Express. I ended up paying with another card, which meant that I lost points despite this restaurant being connected to a JW Marriott.

    We chose Fiola for our 20th wedding anniversary dinner, and let me tell you, it didn’t disappoint. Small dining room, personal, attentive service, yet not cold. Everyone serves with a smile. We chose the ala carte 3 course with dessert. Every dish was delicious. I particularly loved my foie gras. It was amazing! The restaurant sent over an extra dessert and a note to mark the occasion. The chef came out and spent 10 minutes talking to us, which went above and beyond. When I go to Venice, I will be sure to visit Fiola again!

    service and food were of very high quality the wine pairing deserves a lot of improvement - we tried the so called premium option and most of the wines came across as disappointing, a bit mainstream and cheap overall, our experience was great and flawless, I would strongly recommend the place!

    Excellent vegetarian menu. Top quality products, great taste, excellent preparation. Only problem: the music playlist was some kind of shrill jazz music. Did not fit the surrounding, the atmosphere and was simply disturbing. Great location!

    It was good but the whole experience was let down by being presented with a bill that indicated that the two bottles of mineral water we had were 10 Euros each.. why do that? Why send people home feeling they had been ripped off Also, our waitress was a nice girl but not v good Didn’t bring a wine list and had no idea how to top up wine She filled my glass too high and didn’t give any to my guest The prices are very high so you would expect better And it’s a bad idea spoil it with 10 Euro water

    The food itself was fantastic. I had the tasting menu and all items were great. The menu was fairly overpriced and the restaurant charges 12 Euro per person as a cover fee and 10 Euro per bottle of water. It felt like a lot to pay 44 Euro for my husband and me just to have a table and water. The waiters were friendly but a bit too present and could have checked in less frequently.

    Great for special occasions and for something different to do in Venice. The complimentary boat ride whisks you away from the bustling San Marco area to a calm and serene island just 30 minutes away. It's mostly just people staying at the hotel that dine there (I was the only person there for much of my dining experience - which was fine), but the food and service are both outstanding and if you time it right - you'll see a magical sunset over all of Venice.

    This is the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion. The atmosphere was so special, and the attention to detail for the presentation of food was excellent. All the staff were very attentive (Bryan was serving us that evening), helpful and knowledge about the history of the island, how the food is sourced. The "ferrero rocher" dessert was one of the best i've ever had. We especially like the ambience of the dining room, the decor and the colour scheme. If visiting Venice we would love to come back.

    I would recommend this restaurant, with the caveat that there are still a few rough edges to be worked out with the service. Our server seemed more interested in upselling every potential order item rather than figuring out what we might like and offering suggestions based on our input. I also got the impression based on our interactions with the rest of the staff (we were eating on the earlier side) that this is most likely not a staff-wide issue. I really regret putting this on my review on a public website, I usually preach the gospel of addressing this privately with the establishment instead. That said, this was our special Easter dinner and I am still frustrated about this experience 4 days later. Please do go for the food and the atmosphere. It is a beautiful location and facility. At the same time, the interactions we had throughout the meal with our primary server got to the point where We just wanted the meal to end so he would stop suggesting things to us that were either in no way what we wanted (because he never bothered to find out) or, I came to suspect, the most expensive things available for that category in order to increase his tip. His offer at the end of the meal to address any concerns we had about the meal (unsolicited, I assure you, as by this point we only wanted to leave) rang terribly hollow, and only served to make me angrier.

    Some very good products but the melange of ingredients are not that great. So we were a little disapointed. The price is exagerated also. And the service too talkative.

    Service is quite unstructured, and they aren’t flexible on the menu. The food was ok, not out of this world and we’ve eaten at 1/2/3 star restaurants. The initial garden tasting experience was good. However, Their credit card machine failed, and we had to go to the Hotel to pay. In that process, they skipped the Petit four. Not on top of the finer details.
