Do Forni


The Restaurant



"The pleasure of taste begins at Do Forni, to rediscover the flavors of the most tempting culinary creativity."



The history of Do Forni restaurant hails back to the most characteristic and ancient traditions of the city. During the golden years of the Venetian Republic the bakery producing bread and sweets for the nearby convent of San Zaccaria (the Doge's Palace) was located here, in fact, and a small part was used as a typical Venetian tavern (with cicchetti appetizers).



After the fall of the Venetian Republic in 1797, the tavern was expanded to include the area previously used as bakery. It became a restaurant in the nineteenth century under its current name and it has been under the care of Mr Eligio Paties since 1973. Through his passionate vocation, understanding of the cultural importance of cuisine, and his innate hospitality, he has successfully turned Do Forni into a popular destination for all those who travel to Venice and wish to experience the noblest traditions of Venetian hospitality.




Do Forni Restaurant offers a traditional and elegant setting in its Venetian-style rooms, and luxurious in those rooms that faithfully reproduce the hospitality of an Orient Express dining car.



The restaurant is present in the gastronomic guides of the best restaurants in Italy.





Cuisine



The Doge of Venice Ludovico Manin recommended: "Prawns and Scallops on a bed of rocket with a dressing of lemon, oil, salt and pepper."



Do Forni features traditional Venetian cuisine, mainly based on seafood, with a menu offering fish and shellfish from the Adriatic Sea using centuries-old Venetian recipes enhanced by seasonal vegetables and delicate sauces, but also a refined interpretation of both Venetian and Italian cuisine that is influenced by international gastronomy in its preparation of local meats and vegetables.

Since 1986, the Do Forni restaurant has revived the tradition of the “Art Restaurant” by creating the International Prize for Graphic Art, awarded to two artists - one Italian and one international - selected from a shortlist of twenty invited participants, during the annual ceremony hosted at important locations in the city.



The works of the winning artists of all editions of the Do Forni International Prize for Graphic Art are on permanent display in the rooms of the restaurant.
