Venice is home to busy squares, canals and palaces that seem to float on water. Many of the restaurants are located on various canals that wind through the centre of the city, and the breathtaking views at these places are as big a lure as the food.

Terrazza Danieli

This extravagant restaurant is located on the roof of the Hotel Danieli, offering a panoramic view of Venice. Guests can enjoy traditional Venetian cuisine with the menu offering seafood such as turbot, risotto with clams, or equally delicious vegetarian options. The red velvet chairs and the white table cloths of Terrazza Danieli makes this a perfect location for a lavish evening out. Open daily 12-3pm and 7-10:30pm.

Trattoria da Alvise
