Hosteria da Franz Venezia 1870


In the late 19th Century, an ancient ropery became a remarkable place to eat the typical products of the venetian lagoon and its islands.
This is the story of Hostaria da Franz, which takes its name from its founder, the Austro-Hungarian soldier Franz Habeler. As time goes by through different ages, Hostaria da Franz still flourishes, the place to be for real Venetian hospitality, food and atmosphere.
