Situated in the Palazzo’s original ballroom overlooking the Grand Canal is The Red Dining Room. Here, renowned Michelin-star chef Davide Oldani has developed an exquisite Italian menu featuring dishes such as locally sourced razor clams and truffle pasta made in the hotel’s kitchen. Indulge yourself with the incredible canal views as your backdrop, then order a cocktail to drink in one of the hotel’s two impressive gardens. For those that want to explore (and can face leaving the haven of the Aman), lunch should be taken at Ristorante Osteria da Fiore (dafiore.net), one of the floating city’s oldest Italian restaurants hidden down a winding alley. A jacket is required for gentlemen but you will want to wear one when feasting on Venetian classics such as bigoli with sardines while drinking copious amounts of red wine. And when in Venice, everyone must drink a Bellini at Harry’s Bar (harrysbarvenezia.com), the celebrated celebrity haunt once frequented by the likes of Orson Welles, Truman Capote and Charlie Chaplin.
