  • Afternoon Tea by Ginori 1735

    €40.00 per person

    Multiple dates available
    The Afternoon Tea Ritual is a quintessential St. Regis tradition and an important part of our culture. The story of afternoon tea date back to Anna, Duchess of Bedford who is considered to have invented the ceremony of the afternoon tea party. Mrs. Caroline Astor adopted the tradition stateside, offering an occasion to gather her closest intimates as a prelude to formal social events. This ceremony was then continued by her son, Jhon Jacob Astor IV, at the St. Regis New York, and ultimately around the world as a signature ritual in all of our hotels.. Our exquisite afternoon tea ritual offer is presented in Oriente Italiano™ c/o Ginori 1735. La Via del Tè is particularly sensitive to environmental and ethical issues.

    Cadre extraordinaire au bord du Grand Canal. Personnel gentil, attentionné et pas trop présent. Nourriture plutôt médiocre étant donné le standard de l’hôtel. Le buffet de petit-déjeuner ainsi que les plats commandés à la carte n’étaient pas à la hauteur attendue. Mais nous reviendrons, l’expérience reste magique.

    When we first arrived the service was impeccable. The lady serving us was attentive and friendly and was helpful explaining the menu changes. The sommelier was friendly and attentive topping up drinks through the meal. We were offered help with the wine menu but, as only one of us was drinking, this wasn’t needed. It was easy to select one of the 2 wine options offered by the glass. The food was amazing, compliments to the chef. The quality, portion size and flavours were a pleasure. Being my husbands birthday, Gios had arranged. Birthday tiramisu which was a lovely touch. Unfortunately when this came out we were offered no choice of desert, apperitivo or coffee. We waited for someone to do so once this was finished and, after half an hour of waiting at a dirty table, had to flag someone down to request the cheque. It is a shame the service at the end of the meal didn’t match the beginning or the service that appeared to be provided to the table next to us (who were visited 7 times while we tried to catch someone’s eye). It was a shame to end such a lovely meal so disappointed.

    The food, staff and service are impeccable at this restaurant. We had a beautiful lunch on the terrace by the side of the Grand Canal. One point to note is the restaurant is part of the St Regis hotel and quite hard to find but you won’t be disappointed when you get there.

    We expected excellent food and this was really disappointing. Tasteless, poorly presented and not aligned with what was requested. We ordered Sirloin and it was absolutely ´overcooked´-toasted. the Tuna as a starter was really below the level a restaurant with these prices and references should serve. The service on the other hand was excellent, it´s the quality of the food that is poor and a pity for a beautiful place like this.

    I chose this place to celebrate my wife's birthday. But the atmosphere of the place is a disgrace. Even though I made a reservation 20 days in advance, they seated us at a table for 4 people, even though I requested a seat with a sea view. The food was absolutely disgusting. Also, when we went out to the garden to smoke, we saw 2 mice almost the size of a cat. After we finished our meal, I reminded him twice for the surprise cake. Definitely to celebrate special day I can say it's the worst place. I will never go again. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, it's definitely a disgraceful place.

    Ospitalità e servizio impeccabile la fanno da padrone. Dal personale, al servizio e alla qualità del cibo tutto impeccabile grande qualità. Altamente consigliato, ambiente tranquillo e piacevole. Abbiamo avuto modo di prendere un aperitivo pre-cena presso l'Art Bar ( dal quale siamo stati annunciati al ristorante Gio's prima del nostro arrivo). Carta dei cocktail ottima e ricercata. Gio's restaurante presenta una carta variegata con prodotti della tradizione veneziana (Bottoni ripieni di baccalà alla vicentina). Grande accoglienza, consigliato per una cena in un ambiente tranquillo.

    Was really excited to dine here after reading the reviews and with a planned stay at the hotel. We were seated in the back of an empty restaurant - I pointed at an available window table and was told it was “for a reservation” - I happened to be overheard and apparently the reservation it was being held for… was mine. Strange! A table in the back of our section (adjacent to our original table) had their child’s iPhone on full blast, including when the child wandered off from the table. Staff was uninterested in asking them to lower the volume (or even pause the video when the child wasn’t at the table for prolonged periods). It honestly took away from the beautiful experience. Food was good. The beef carpaccio was my favorite. I didn’t wish to order a cocktail due to the grating sound effects from the back. The bites at the start are great. To surprise my boyfriend, I asked if we could have a few more of the special ravioli while he stepped away from the table. The server insisted it would be no issue and asked when I wanted them - I replied “whenever!” They never came. A little disappointing. We had breakfast (unrelated to this dinner booking) at the restaurant and enjoyed it much better. The options were fantastic and we enjoyed stunning views and a quiet morning (we went before 9am) with wonderful service. The ambiance is spectacular when considerate guests are dining. A child crying or screaming is understandable. A loud device is not.

    My recent visit to Gio in Venice was nothing short of extraordinary, largely thanks to our incredible waiter, Elisa. While the restaurant itself boasts a charming ambiance and a menu filled with culinary masterpieces, it was Elisa’s exceptional service that truly made our evening memorable. Her extensive knowledge of the menu and her genuine enthusiasm for the cuisine shone through in every interaction. She was more than a waiter; she was a culinary guide, taking the time to understand our preferences and daring us to try dishes we wouldn’t have ordinarily chosen. Her recommendations were impeccable, each dish a delightful surprise that tantalized our taste buds in ways we hadn’t imagined. Elisa’s attentiveness and professionalism did not go unnoticed. Her ability to blend friendly conversation with efficient service made us feel both valued and well taken care of. The level of personalization and care she brought to our table was a rare find.
