THE LIDO OF VENICE
The Lido is one of the islands of the Venetian lagoon, known mostly for its Film Festival and for its beaches. It's a residential area, where life runs smoothly and quietly.
I love this small island and I highly recommend visiting it, especially during the summer when central Venice gets over crowded and unbearably hot. On the Lido you can go to the beach, rent a bike, visit local markets and...savour some amazing food!

L'Essentiale restaurant and lounge bar, located inside Hotel Villa Laguna, is my favourite place on the Lido.

Probably the best traditional fish restaurant in Lido. Al Merca' is located in the centre in the covered market area, just next to it there is a fishmonger stall, therefore the quality of the ingredients is of first choice. It's possible to enjoy just a cicchetto and a glass of wine or to have a proper meal in their lovely restaurant. Highly recommended.

Pizzeria El Cason €
Address: Via G.Pividor 15, Venezia Phone: +39 041 526 0837
This pizzeria is very popular among locals and, in fact, the pizza is very good. To reach it you need to take a bus and get off after the swimming pool (ask the driver! Just tell him that you want to go to "El Cason" and he'll know).
Trattoria al Ponte di Borgo €€
Address: Calle Mercerie, Venezia, VE 30100
Phone: +39 041 770090
One of the few old style traditional osterias left. Located in Malamocco, I highly recommend stopping here. My suggestion is to spend the day at the beach, either on the Murazzi or at Alberoni, and then go there for dinner. Booking recommended!

Address: Piazzale Malamocco, 5, 30126

Gelido Lato €
Address: Via Isola di Cerigo, 5, 30126 Lido of Venice
Phone: +39 041 839 0645
Located at the beginning of the Gran Viale on the left side, this small ice-cream shop prepares an excellent product using only natural, seasonal and mostly local ingredients. I recommend the dark chocolate and the yogurt flavours.
A PERFECT DAY ON THE LIDO
If you are visiting Venice in the summer months and spending at least three days in the city, I highly recommend taking a vaporetto and heading to the Lido. This quiet little island is beautiful and definitely more relaxed than central Venice! In the summer the weather is very hot and damp and the city gets over crowded with tourists, that often end up queuing for hours and exhausted by the heat. So, why don't you spend the day at the beach and go back to Venice in the afternoon? Even if I would spend the entire day on the Lido and this is what I would do:
1) TAKE TOWELS, SWIMMING SUIT AND FLIP FLOPS
Lido means beach. So put on your swimming suit, remember to bring a towel, sun cream, flip flops. Wear comfortable shoes!
2) BREAKFAST AT CANTON DEL GALLO
Once you get off the vaporetto, take the Gran Viale on the right side and go to Al Canton del Gallo for a nice breakfast. Mine would be: double coffee, croissant and fresh orange juice.
3) RENT A BIKE
It costs about 8 or 10 euros a day. There are a few bike rentals in the Gran Viale and the prices are more or less the same, so..up to you!
4) SLOWLY HEAD TO ALBERONI BEACH
An oasis of peace, a free-beach where time seems to stop, located at the far end of the island. For drinks and snacks there is a beautiful kiosk where I highly recommend to try the sautéed mussels. You can spend the whole day lying down on the beach or explore the area, going for a walk to the lighthouse or, instead, exploring the protected oasis. At the end of the day you can take a shower behind the kiosk for a couple of euros.
5) RETURN BIKE
Return to S.M.Elisabetta, put down your bike and have a walk in the Gran Viale. You could simply enjoy a spritz and an ice-cream or....
6) STOP AT VILLA LAGUNA HOTEL
This Hotel hosts my favourite restaurant and lounge bar: L'Essentiale. Whether you just want an aperitif or a proper meal, this is a must stop before heading back to Venice. The terrace overlooks the lagoon and at that time of the evening the colours of the sky are incredible.
A perfect ending to a wonderful day.

Brandon’s Pro Tip: When traveling to a different country the planning stage can be stressful. By bookmarking helpful articles it is a great way not to forget some vital info that you pick up. Bookmark this post so you know where to eat! Also, check out our Venice tours – Venice is best seen through the eyes of passionate locals.
10 Best Places To Eat And Drink in Lido, Venice
The Lido district opens up a whole new world as far as Venice goes. You will find a peace and quiet here that doesn’t exist anywhere else in Venice. There are many hotels for groups here, but most people are discovering the mainland throughout the day. This is also a great spot to come and enjoy the sandy beaches. The Lido area has many local restaurants, but you have to be careful since there are still tourist traps.
Since nobody likes tourist traps ( myself included) we have asked our local Venetian guides to put together a list of their favorite places when they are in this part of town. We hope it helps you take the guesswork out of your decision and focus on enjoying your vacation. Buon Appetito!
€ | Food Truck | Vegetarian Friendly
So if you didn’t know food trucks are a nascent thing in Italy as well. Their popularity is continuing to grow and here in Lido you can find the resident food truck that specializes in various kinds of sandwiches. Since it is Italy, the food truck has to by stylish of course and is a double decker bus.
With more than 30 sandwiches on the menu there is something for everyone. You have typical Italian sandwiches such as Bresaola or Prosciutto which are perennial favorites. You can also get a sandwich with chicken, a hamburger or many vegetarian delights as well. Perfect for if you are bumming at the beach for the day or don’t feel like sitting down for a meal.
Address: Lungomare D’Annunzio, Lido, 30126 Venezia
Hours: Noon- 2 AM Always Open
€ | Snacks | Aperitivo
We can all agree that it is important to find good restaurants, but it is also extremely important to find a good watering hole. It just feels good to know you have somewhere to go to get a good drink be it before or after your meal.
The staff at Bar 9 are extremely outgoing and ready to please. It is a great aperitivo joint and if you happen to be around there for lunchtime, then they also serve sandwiches that are delicious with great pricing!
Address: Via Lepanto, 9, 30126 Lido
Hours: Open 24 hours a day
Popular Venice Tours
Best Selling Tour
Ultimate Venice in a Day with Murano and Burano
The ultimate tour of Venice. You’ll get skip-the-line access to the most important buildings in Venice, plus a gondola ride, and private transportation to the islands of Murano and Burano. It’s a full day of touring that will make for the best memories in Venice ever.
Venice Evening Food Tour in Cannaregio District
People who say Venice is too touristy have not done enough research. Cannaregio is an amazing break from the crowds, and our food tour is the most authentic way to experience it. Taste cicchetti and other Venetian specialties including wine. You’ll leave with a full stomach and a love for Venetian food!
€ | No Frills | Eat in or Take Out
I don’t usually recommend any pizzeria that is not owned by someone from Naples. No real bias, but people from Naples make the best pizza and have been for over a century. However, for a quick slice it is hard to pass this place up.
When you get tired of seafood or pasta and just feel like a slice, come check this place out. For 3€ a slice it’s hard to pass up and the pizza is delicious. You can choose a regular slice of pizza like you are used to back home or go for a Pizza Bianca which is like a long slice of bread with various toppings.
Address: Via Sandro Gallo, 135/G, 30126 Venezia
Hours: 5 PM- 9:30 PM
Osteria Al Merca
€€ | Busy Spot | Local
This Osteria is extremely popular with locals so if you are planning to go on the weekend I highly recommend that you reserve in advance. During the week it shouldn’t be a problem.
Their specialty is typical seafood recipes that are local. One of my favorites here is the fritto misto, which means a mix of various seafood that is fried. You spray some lemon on it and go to food heaven. For nonseafood lovers, you can get some pasta with pesto or lasagna among other treats.
Address: Via E. Dandolo, 17B, 30100 Venezia
Hours: Noon- 2:30 PM, 6:45 PM- 9:30 PM Open every day
€€ | Family Run | Friendly Staff
A trattoria is traditionally a family run joint and the Trattoria Andri is no exception. As soon as you walk inside, you will feel as if you went into some Italian’s house for dinner.
The specialty here is seafood in all of it’s glory. Each plate is decorated the way you envision it is in an Italian household and if you are in a group you can just go family style with each dish.
Address: Via Lepanto, 21, 30126 Venezia
Hours: 6:30PM- 10 PM Closed Mondays
€€€ | Historical Establishment | Modern Cuisine
This restaurant is an interesting mix between Venetian and Tuscan cuisine. That’s because the owners come from both places, creating a unique twist of flavors. You will find this restaurant a favorite among the locals.
How about a scallop tartar with mint and coriander mousse? Or maybe a risotto with San Marzano tomatoes, burrata and pesto? Wash it down with one of their 200 labels of wine and have an awesome night.
Address: Via F.Morosini, 4, 30126 Lido
Hours: 12:30 PM- 2:30 PM, 7PM- 10 PM Open every day
€€ | Lagoon View | Seafood
As you walk in the first thing you will notice is the eclectic design. There are amphorae, anchors and Nautical maps all around. One of the only places you can eat with a view of the lagoon, so you can smell the sea as you eat.
You come here to eat seafood as this is their specialty. I recommend the Bacala with polenta or the fritto misto. If you are not hungry come in and have a spritz on the terrace and enjoy the sunset.
Address: Via dei Kirchmayer, 16, 30126 Lido
Hours: 9 AM- Midnight Open every day
€€€ | Seafood | Outdoor Dining
You come here to eat seafood, period. Even if you don’t like seafood, you should try it here just to see if they can change your mind. You might also run into movie star while there.
For an appetizer I highly recommend the crudo misto. This is a raw seafood mixture of various shellfish and is heavenly. After try the classic spaghetti with clams and if you are still hungry after then go with the Dover Sole cooked in a lemon and white wine sauce.
Address: Via Sandro Gallo, 81, 30126 Venezia
Hours: Noon- 3:30 PM, 6:30 PM- Midnight Closed Saturday and Sunday
€€€ | Outdoor Seating | Favorite among Locals
If you ask many people from Lido what is the best restaurant on the island, many of them will say Ristorante Favorita. It has been here many generations and is a family run restaurant. You can choose to eat inside or sit outside on the terrace.
They specialize in seafood from the lagoon as with all typical Venetian restaurants. The fresh is always very fresh and the quality to price ratio is fair. If you are looking for a meal that everyone will like, come on down!
Address: Via Francesco Duodo, 33, 30126 Venezia
Hours: Noon- 2:30 PM, 7 PM- 10:30 PM Closed Mondays
L’Arte Della Pasticceria
€ | Dessert | Sweet tooth
Many of the pastry shops on the main part of Venice cater to tourists at this point. In Lido, the majority of people are local, so in my opinion the pastry shops are better. And if you happen to have a sweet tooth then definitely try this particular pastry shop.
In general pastry shops in Italy are designed to make your jaw drop a bit when you walk inside. L’arte della Pasticceria will do exactly that. You can come in to have a coffee and something sweet, order a whole cake or just get some sweet nibbles for the day. Either way, no matter what you get, it will put a smile on your face.
Address: Via Sandro Gallo, 119, 30126 Lido
Hours: 9 AM- 1 PM Closed Mondays

Creative Italian cuisine plated lakeside
On the Pass
Unconventionally Italian: Lido 84 serves quintessentially Italian food – just not as you know it. Years of research into local ingredients, old recipe books and international cooking techniques, combined with a penchant for art in all its forms and a deep passion to put the customer first, have turned Riccardo and Giancarlo Camanini’s restaurant into a masterpiece.
The lake experience: The restaurant is perched over Lake Garda in a charming old building that was once a lido – in Italy, a beach club for vacationing families. The Camaninis bought the building in 2013 and transformed it into a restaurant, with the dining room now dotted with eclectic pieces of art. When the weather is good, tables are set up on the terrace outside, directly overlooking Lake Garda’s tranquil waters, with Giancarlo as the warm host ensuring each client feels looked after.
Jewel in the crown: Riccardo, the chef half of the duo, is known for constantly adding new dishes to the tasting and à la carte menus based on his latest findings. However, a few recipes have gained semi-permanent status, the most famous of which is the Rigatoni Cacio e Pepe en Vessie. An almost poetic ode to craftmanship and the highest-quality products, it sees the pasta cooked in a pig’s bladder in a process that must be assessed blindly, touching the bladder to judge whether it may be ready. The bladders’ juices, gently shaken by specialist cooks, form an emulsion with the cheese, lending perfect creaminess to the final dish.
On the way up: Lido 84 made its mark on the global culinary scene in 2019, when it was chosen to receive the One To Watch Award. It then debuted on The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list in 2021 at No.15, picking up the Highest New Entry Award – and it is still on the way up, nabbing the No.7 position this year.
