Venissa in Venice?

chow2chow Jun 10, 2013 12:50 PM

We are in Venice now, eating very well thanks to Elizabeth and the EatVenice app! We have a reservation for Venissa on Friday but it seems that there will be a vaporetto strike. I am going to try to change for Thursday but now I see there is a new chef. Any information/experience about the change?

    We did have an excellent lunch! Beautiful setting overlooking a garden and vineyard, wonderful flavors and execution. Definitely a destination lunch! Very expensive: 98 euro tasting menu, plus wine. For a day outside with someone you love, highly recommended!

      Yes, in fact, there is a new chef. Although I haven't eaten there yet, I"ve heard good things. And the place is fantastic.

      But if there is going to be a vaperetto strike, then maybe you should think of changing your reservations.

        Elizabeth, if you think it will be as good I will trust you. Going Thursday. Your recommendations so far are brilliant: Fontego de Pescatore, Vini da Gigio, Timon for cichetti, and tonight alla Testiere. Hoping for Corte Sconta onFriday night if we can get reservation. Thank you!
