An Ancient “Corderia” Transforms into Hosteria da Franz
In the late 19th century, an ancient “corderia” becomes a meeting place to savor the typical products of the Venetian lagoon and its islands.
Birth and History of Hosteria da Franz
Thus, Hosteria da Franz is born, named after its founder, the Austro-Hungarian soldier Franz Habeler. As time passes, different eras contribute to making the Hosteria a reference point for Venetian hospitality and a place dedicated to good cuisine.
Hosteria da Franz
The restaurant Hosteria da Franz, with over 35 years of activity and a focus on high-quality cuisine, is now located in the Castello district in the Bragora area. This is one of the most typical and authentic Venetian “sestieri,” still outside the mass tourist circuit. “Bragora,” possibly derived from the Greek “brà agorà” (meadow + market) or from the dialect terms “bragolà,” market square, or “bragolare,” fishing practice.
The Menu of Hosteria da Franz
Hosteria da Franz’s menu exclusively offers seafood-based dishes and Venetian seasonal specialties. The offerings are continually complemented by daily suggestions, a hallmark of proprietor Maurizio Gasparini and his staff’s constant effort to present customers with fresh daily catches, seasonal vegetables from the Venice lagoon’s production areas, and a selection of wines that pair with the dishes offered by Venetian cellars.
Location of Hosteria da Franz
