After previous visits to the Cipriani for dinner when in Venice, last months was not the special occasion we remembered. Food very much the same as everywhere else, staff similar but of-course prices are much higher. When ordering cheese at the end of the meal, six small pieces arrived one of which you could see through. As a portion of cheese costs thirty euros, we asked for more of the gorganzola. When the bill arrived, a charge of ninety euros (about £80) for cheese was on the bill - this was rectified but not professionally. Past experiences were better with exceptional personalities (I remember one called Paolo) when even the pianist helped to make the evening memorable. With this still in our minds and with the rate of exchange being what it is - we won't be going again. Found good food elsewhere with extra cheese 'on the house'.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- If Venice is a theatre, Belmond Hotel Cipriani is the Royal Box. It is a resort: a way of life, an island apart, in every sense. And it involves all the senses that make a stay unforgettable. Five minutes by private launch from St. Mark’s Square, on the tip of the Giudecca Island, Belmond Hotel Cipriani is in the heart of the city but removed from its hustle and bustle. Its 95 rooms and suites are exquisitely decorated with magnificent views over the open lagoon, the gardens and St. Marks. A day here is made up of layers of wonderful experiences, from luxuriating beside the Olympic-size swimming pool (the only one in central Venice) to relaxing with a signature treatment at the Casanova Wellness Centre. The Casanova gardens offer an oasis of peace, perfect for a Thai Chi session before heading off with a private boat for a personalised excursion in the lagoon. Choose to dine at the new Oro Restaurant for a timeless dining experience or at the iconic Cip’s Club admiring the view on St. Mark’s. Sip a signature cocktail at the Gabbiano Bar or enjoy a light lunch at the Porticciolo Restaurant. A red-clay tennis court, a gym and dedicated Kids' Club with pool are also available. ... more less
