When to get there

Whereas most Italian restaurants are open only at lunch and dinner—around 12:30pm until 3pm and around 7:30pm until 10pm—Hard Rock Cafe Venice serves non-stop from 11am until after midnight. If you haven’t adjusted to dining later in Italy, this is where you can get lunch or dinner any time of day.
