“Quadri is the best restaurant in Venice by a wide margin,” writes Andy Hayler’s Restaurant Guide. “The first-floor restaurant with its stunning views of Piazza San Marco and its original, surprising wood panelling, Murano chandeliers and precious hangings is a triumph,” concurs the Louis Vuitton’s Venice City Guide. “Chef Massimiliano (aka Max) is a creative genius,” says Anne Hanley at The Telegraph. “Quadri serves food fit for the gods with a menu designed by the alchemist Max Alajmo, the youngest chef in history to be awarded three stars by the Michelin Guide back in 2002,” concludes Luxos. “Constantly experimenting with ways to relish nature, the Laguna menu changes with the season, a chance to savour the flavours of the Veneto on your palate while gazing at Europe’s most beautiful drawing room below.”
Quadri is unashamedly expensive, with tasting menus on offer between €170 and €300, but the good news is that “ABC Quadri, the street-level café serves up more affordable Venetian specialities prepared by Silvio Giavedoni and Denis Mattiuzzi, a highlight being the house hamburger, the Big Max,” notes The Louis Vuitton Guide.
