“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams”
Wistèria Restaurant was born from the dream that Andrea and Max have cultivated since childhood. Passion and love for cooking are the foundations of Wistèria’s offer, together with the spirit of research and innovation.
Wistèria Restaurant offers a taste experience that is mainly based on products sourced from the Adriatic Sea and the Veneto region, from the Venetian water and lands, the result of Venice Lagoon’s exceptional ecosystem. Here the contamination between fresh and salt water gives life to unique ingredients, which Wistèria Restaurant selects directly from producers who respect environmental sustainability.
The meats are also selected from producers of excellence, with a total supply chain, who take care of all stages of the farming process, from the cultivation of the fields to the care and slaughter of the animals.
In the Wistèria proposal there are also ingredients from faraway countries, in a harmonious contrast with the Venetian personality. It could not be otherwise in the kitchen of a restaurant in Venice, the city in the Western world that first explored by land and sea the East and its spices, worlds and flavors unknown at that time, and from which drew inspiration.
The exploration continues today and accompanies the need for research as it evolves, to create new taste experiences with unexpected flavors. Serendipity, Wistèria’s menu, is its expression, conceived as a journey through harmonious taste sensations, where being disoriented becomes the value of the experience.
The wine list in Wistèria is an integral part of the gustatory research and focuses on the ability of wines to accompany the menu with combinations that can enhance the characteristics and value of the dish and of the wine itself. Alongside labels and wines of recognized prestige, the Wistèria selection represents producers of excellence, both Italian and international, including niche producers, who put environmental sustainability at the forefront of their production process.
A team that works together, in harmony, like an ecosystem, where everyone is part of a whole that is sustainable, both in the tasks and in the working hours, as well as in respecting and listening to new ideas and critical issues to be solved,in order to always improve: the people who work in Wistèria are the added value that allows us to offer the best experience of taste and hospitality every day.

outdoor area where you can enjoy food and tranquility in an unexpected Venetian garden.
