Oriental Bar of the Metropole

Dating back to 1500, the Metropole is a five-star hotel with a two Michelin-starred restaurant. The Oriental Bar at the front of the hotel is cozy – you might also want to take drinks in the delightful Giardino degli Agrumi (Citrus Garden) in the back.

Taverna della Fenice

Flanking the opera house, this eatery dates from the 19th century and is a meeting point for the city’s cultural movers and shakers. The current management is putting new emphasis on the quality and creativity of its menu, with vegetarian and vegan options alongside classics like fegato alla Veneziana (Venetian sliced liver with ­polenta).

Trattoria da Bepi

For home-cooked Venetian dishes – and a friendly welcome for four-footed friends – Bepi’s low-key and unpretentious establishment fits the bill, including the check at the end of the meal.
