About us

Since 1949 gastronomy has played an important role in the history of The Gritti Palace. Its culinary school, a legacy since 1975, is no exception. Now a refined version of its iconic self, The Gritti Epicurean School is a warm, country-style kitchen where guests may immerse themselves in Venetian culinary traditions and learn the secrets to preparing perfect risottos, pasta dishes and delectable desserts. The kitchen's intimate atmosphere also lends itself perfectly for Chef's Table-style dinners, wine or food tastings, and informal private dinners.
