Venissa is a boutique hotel and restaurant in Venice with a difference. Venissa sits on Mazzorbo, one of two small islands at the heart of the Northern Lagoon Park and is only half an hour by ferryboat from the historical centre of Venice and 15 minutes from Treporti. The Venissa estate, (ex Scarpa-Volo) has been preserved over the centuries firstly as a convent vegetable garden, then as a domestic vineyard and today it offers guests the chance to visit a protected agricultural area of incredible merit. The Venissa project and estate, which includes a Michelin star restaurant and a 6 room boutique hotel, is the brainchild of the Bisol family, wine growers and producers and the Vento di Venezia yachting centre. The entire Venissa estate is enclosed in 18th century walls which were partly rebuilt in the following centuries and features original buildings including the manor house where guests stay, cellars, the stable, the barn and the outbuildings. Venissa is one of the last examples of a Venetian walled vineyard and it is here that the Bisol Family decided to replant the Dorona grape variety, the golden grape of the Doges, cultivated for centuries in Venice and almost lost in time. The peace and tranquillity of this magical place makes Venissa a relaxing base for guests wanting to visit Venice and the beauty of the islands from which the city rose up.
Chef Antonia Klugmann works her magic in her Michelin star kitchen producing imaginative dishes full of flavour and colour with most of the vegetables grown in the estate’s own garden. Her partner Romano De Feo oversees a fine selection of Triveneto wine labels offering guests the choice of some of the most famous and in many cases, rare wines.

The 6 contemporary rooms at Venissa are situated in the ex manor house and take their names from the islands in the Northern Lagoon Park. A different view can be enjoyed from each room and some of them look directly out on to the Venice Lagoon whilst others look onto the ancient walled estate and the island of Burano. The Certosa Suite, with its handpainted antique wardrobe, is our favourite and is on the so called “piano nobile”, the top floor, overlooking the famous Mazzorbo canal. The Sant'Erasmo Room is located on the ground floor making it suitable for wheelchair access; its airy windows look out towards the romantic Mazzorbo canal.
