Ristorante da Fiore, one of Venice’s finest.

Bargain Lunch on the Canal at one of  Venice’s Best Dining Spots

By Anita Draycott

Female chef Mara Martin presides over Ristorante da Fiore, one of Venice’s finest. Wine Spectator calls da Fiore the best restaurant in Venice. Patricia Wells includes it on her list of the world’s top five restaurants. Gourmet writes that the Martins serve the finest Adriatic seafood of any Italian restaurant. Formerly a tavern, the tiny gem is tucked alongside a small canal not far from Piazza San Polo. Dinner can be pricy but the daily lunch menu, €50, includes three courses, a glass of wine, bottled water and coffee. Martin’s fritto misto is sublime, as is her risotto with porcini mushrooms and prawns.
