Nestled in the former Jewish ghetto with a canal-front view is Gam Gam, Venice’s first Kosher eatery and brainchild of Orthodox Jews originally from New York. The restaurant opens its doors to customers Sunday through Friday for lunch and dinner, drawing in crowds with their diverse menu offerings, ranging from Mediterranean Middle Eastern foods, to traditional Italian and Spanish dishes. Opening hours are as follows: Sunday-Thursday 12:00pm – 10:00pm, Friday 12:00pm – two hours before Shabbat (All Year), Saturday Nights (Winter months) one hour after Shabbat ends until 11:00pm.


Gam Gam has been serving both local and international customers in Venice for over fifteen years, and is the best-known kosher restaurant in the Jewish hub. The food-gem is renowned for its menu, cultivated from the finest ingredients by its renowned house chef, its laid-back atmosphere, and more-than-friendly staff. The spot retains in authenticity with a ‘resident Venetian’ – a staff member whose local blood runs deep, tracing back to the Venetian Jewish community of the 15th century.
