Lido island in the Venetian lagoon is best known for hosting the annual Venice Film Festival but it also has some of the best seafood cuisine in the area. Here’s our guide to the 10 best restaurants on the Lido.
Da Cri Cri e Tendina
Da Cri Cri e Tendina is a centrally located tavern, known for its fish specialities and great local wine. With the relaxed and friendly atmosphere, it is very popular with locals. Take a seat in the corner of the garden, relax with a glass of prosecco and enjoy the delicious food; try their cicchetti and seafood antipasti.. In the evening, you’ll see a regular crowd gathering for a round of cards and lively Italian conversation.

Parco delle Rose
Located on the Gran Viale, the main street on Lido, Parco delle Rose is a great pizzeria with a pretty garden. If you are looking for a cool place to hide from the sun or just want to relax over dinner, this is a charming spot in the center with welcoming and friendly atmosphere. Parco delle Rose is known for its pizzas, but you can also order pasta dishes and select from rich seafood menu. Opt for a three-course tasting menu if you can’t decide.
Located next to a canal, La Sferetta is a stones-throw away from Lido center. The friendly atmosphere and delicious food make this a great choice for either lunch or dinner. The menu is fish-based and the friendly staff will help you make a decision on what to choose. La Sferetta has a lovely canal side garden, where you can chill and enjoy the summer evenings with a crisp glass of Italian wine.
