Ristorante Ai Gondolieri

A few steps from the Salute Church and the Accademia Gallery, “Ai Gondoliers” reworks the local food culture through a healthy and delicious eating. Its origin dates back to the early decades of the ‘900 as a meeting place for residents and workers in the area, as its insignia in 40 years’ characters protected as a historic landmark by the city of Venice. The place was then an old inn to eat simple meals, drink a glass of wine and play cards, while today the current owner, Giovanni Trevisan, since 1987 has restored respect its identity and creating an art meeting place culinary and gracious hospitality. To sit here with us Gondoliers means taste, taste and enjoy the ancient traditions in the extraordinary atmosphere of Venice.

Our strengths are definitely the first fruits of the lagoon, always seasonal, fresh homemade pasta with its thousand facets and meat, the choice always so attentive and prepared in the best tradition of the Gondoliers.

In addition to its menu, the restaurant is also famous for its high level of catering and banqueting service. The owner, Giovanni Trevisan, in collaboration with “Café Museum” and “Event,” has organized parties and ceremonies in Venice and the Veneto region. With these partners he has held outdoor receptions at the Guggenheim Foundation on the terrace of the Grand Canal. Particularly impressive were the events in honor of personalities and artists. The restaurant “Ai Gondolieri” is able to cater to any request and any menu for 2,000 people and provides a full service: from the menu to waiters, from the setting to the dishes, from the tablecloths to the glassware.

This is also the wine bar, offering a light menu with quick but quality products to go with a selection of wine glasses at all hours.
