"Best meal in Italy" La Calcina Tip by irenecassim

La Calcina, Venice: 774 reviews and 9 photos

With very friendly staff this homely, elegant hotel was the highlight of our stay in Venice. The excellent location is very easy to walk to from Accademia boat stop or right at the Zattere stop also a 15 minute walk to St Mark's square. Our room was a good size with an almost king size bed, the bathroom was modern and immaculate. We loved sitting on the restaurant verandah watching the many varieties of water transport pass by. Breakfast which included freshly made omelette was more than we expected, but the jewel in the crown is the dinner, surved by candlelite. A set price, three course menu is offered - don't bother eating anywhere else - these were the best value and tastiest meals in our two week stay in Italy.

Unique Qualities: Views from the restaurant area onto the main canal are spectacular day and night. Rooms are furnished typically for the area, very cosy and comfortable. Evening restaurant menu and set price
offer for hotel guests only, is the best value meal in Italy.

Address: Dorsoduro 780, Fondamenta delle Zattere, Venice, V
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: This area is safe, clean, has good size open spaces and is a mix of hotels, churches, galleries without being noisy. A euro 6.50 boat ride, or even better, a free 15 minute walk to St Marks
