Da Fiore

Family-run Da Fiore earns its Michelin star with light, modern interpretations of traditional Italian tastes.

Family-managed fine dining

The best Italian restaurants are driven not just by quality ingredients but by heart and soul. Mara, Maurizio, and Damiano Martin offer Da Fiore not just family management but local management, coming from the nearby island of Murano. It’s this spirit that has transformed one of the city’s old taverns to a Michelin-lauded ristorante.

Lighten up

With 25 years experience under her belt, Chef Mara Martin puts modern, lighter spins on traditional Italian meals by coupling her grandmother’s home cooking with her personal creativity. Fritto misto with vegetables, mint soup with zucchini, and octopus gratin with beans and celery sauce all make their way out of the kitchen.

Large fixed price selection

Six- and seven-course tasting menus are available for diners with deep pockets. There is also a considerable selection of 50 euro fixed price menus. Relying on traditional tastes, you might begin with a caprese with figs, moving on to tagliatelle with porcini mushrooms, ending with a chocolate rum torte.
