Paradiso Perduto – Lost heaven in Fondamenta

Fondamenta della Misericordia is the place to be. In this walk that runs from Venice Ghetto to Strada Nova, you can find some of the most interesting spots for young people (and not only) in Venice.

Indeed the most famous is Paradiso Perduto. What about this legendary place? It was born in the 80s out of desire by a group of students, including Maurizio Adamo who is still the manager. Within some years Paradiso has became a reference point for those interested in listening to jazz music and of course in tasting a good Venetian meal.

The restaurant is a typical Osteria, always chaotic and overcrowded but with a unique atmosphere. Adamo runs between wooden tables offering wine from the carafe with a good smile.This place is perfect for a Sunday lunch outside in Fondamenta or for a dinner with friends.

Check out the the weekly calendar for events and book in advance. On Saturday, even if you have a reservation, you will probably have to wait for your table.
