Excellent food prepared with care and cooked to perfection. Our dinner was the best meal that we have had in at least 10 years in the US. From the Asparagus Salad with spinach, goat cheese and poached egg to our grilled European Sea Bass with Carrots and Gratin Dauphinois, everything was truly superb. My daughter had 6 Escargots followed by one of the evening specials, braised shortribs with a red wine reduction.
My fork wandered to her plate for a taste, and it was truly excellent. Together with the house mashed potatoes and Ratatouille, it was a perfect trio. We finished our meal sharing the Crème Brulée au Chocolat with Raspberry sorbet as well as a Tiramisu au Caramel with Speculos-style crumbles. Perfect, not another word to say. It is truly a pleasure to have dishes served that demonstrate clearly the careful attention that the Chef has taken to make sure that each plate is impeccable. Bravo to the Chef and thank you for your passion and professionalism. We will be back as soon as we can for dinner, and we encourage anyone who wishes to have an excellent dinner in Venice among family or friends to reserve a table at Cafe Longet without any hesitation. Order a fine Petit Chablis or any wine of your choice, and enjoy everything... take your time and appreciate the flavors and every moment. The Chef's passion will surely result in an unforgettable culinary experience.
Bon appetit!

If you are not interested in their great burgers, you have to at least have a glass of wine and the Naughty Fries.

Cafe Longet always is the perfect choice for a truly wonderful dinner.
The chef is extremely talented and his creations excel.
We always make a point to bring special guests from out of town to this amazing gem in Venice.
At our last meal I had an incredible Veal Oso Busco. It was prefect. I had this with the chef's signature "Potatoes Mousseline", think of this as mashed potatoes on steroids. These potatoes alone are totally worth the trip.

Five of us dined at Cafe Longet. Ariel was an excellent server. The food was amazing. The highlight was a special for the evening. It was a scallop bisque with chopped beets and fried crab ravioli. It was beautiful and so delicious. The group also enjoyed the Osso Buco, Boeuf, salmon with orange sauce, the special sea bass, peach tart, and Yummy chocolate creme brûlée. Be sure to make reservations.

We sat outside on a warm and beautiful Saturday night. Service was friendly, attentive, and relaxed and we never felt rushed. Our meals were delicious and the fish was so fresh - 2 of us had Chilean Sea Bass special, 1 person had Branzino, and the 4th person had Risotto with Scallops. For dessert, 2 of our group shared the cheese board, I had the dark chocolate sorbet, and the 4th person had the chocolate torte special. I highly recommend Cafe Longet. This is our third visit and we will most definitely return.

This restaurant is such a gem. The food is exceptional. It has simple decor and people come often casually dressed even though it is truly fine dining. There is limited outdoor dining and the indoor tables are nicely spaced.

What a surprise! This restaurant was completely off my radar which made it all the more enjoyable. My wife had sea bass and I had salmon. Both were cooked to perfection....not always easy with delicate fish. Presentation was perfect. Ambiance a bit sparse, but with COVID, we didn’t expect much. Service was spot on. This is my new favorite restaurant in Venice.
