Surrounded by the lagoon and the Venissa vineyard, the Venissa Osteria Contemporanea is a magical place for a gourmet stop-over in the heart of Native Venice.
Cuisine inspired by local ingredients, fish from the fishermen of Burano, and vegetables sourced from the estate’s vegetable gardens paired with more than 200 labels from the Venetian area.
Open all year. Closed on Wednesdays
Lunch 12.30 - 15.00 - Dinner 19.00 - 23.00
The domestic cuisine of the lagoon islands: the
catch of the day is paired with vegetables from Venissa’s nine gardens, which are tended
to each day by the retirees of Burano. The recipes are those of the signore of Burano,
reflecting the seasons and passed on from generation to generation. A simple cuisine in
an utterly unique location: the gardens of the Venissa estate. There is also a place for
boats to dock in front of the entrance that looks onto the lagoon. The menu is intentionally
simple, because true quality lies in carefully curated details. Our list of local wines
highlights small producers of great quality.
