Open for lunch and dinner, Arva channels Italy’s cucina semplice culinary tradition, transforming fresh, seasonal ingredients into dishes that celebrate simplicity and flavour. Welcoming and convivial, the restaurant offers guests an authentic, sustainable dining experience, inspired by the timeless and inventive heritage of Italian cooking.
The Arva menu has been enhanced by the culinary imagination of consultant chef Norbert Niederkolfer, who has earned his own restaurant in South Tyrol three Michelin stars. Known for his ‘Cook the Mountain’ philosophy of making the best of locally grown ingredients, Chef Norbert sources sustainable, seasonal produce from the Rialto market, Venetian lagoon and islands to enrich the Arva menu, and to provide a series of unique private culinary experiences at Aman Venice throughout the year.
Overlooking the secret garden beside the Grand Canal, Aman Venice’s Bar serves drinks, tea, late-night snacks and light meals – including Aman’s take on classic Venetian cicchetti – from midday until midnight. A homage to Lord Byron, it’s a warm, inviting space, and the perfect spot to watch the sunset over the floating city. Explore the largest selection of gins in Venice, or request a bespoke cocktail from the award-winning resident mixologist.
Intimate and exclusive, Palazzo Kitchen gatherings take place over the course of the year, giving guests the opportunity to spend the evening with the world’s most talented and exciting chefs, as they conjure sustainable local produce into exceptional and unexpected dishes – matched with the rarest vintages from the Aman Venice cellar.
A rarity in Venice, the palazzo’s private canal-side garden, open during Spring and Summer, is an inviting spot for Sunday brunch or leisurely alfresco dining, listening to live music and watching the boats drift by on the water.
