Tel: 255 77 747 2792's insider take:

La Fenice claims to have the best gelato in Zanzibar, but you'll have a hard time saving room for it amid the menu's litany of rich Italian dishes. Creamy risottos, pastas smothered in seafood sauces, and a broad range of reliable grills—of both the surf and turf variety—are among the more traditional offerings. But La Fenice really shines in its more creative dishes, such as the marinated dorado with avocado or crab claws in a ginger and almond sauce. The service is friendly, if not altogether brisk, and the breezy waterfront setting is atmospheric. Though the main dining room is tastefully furnished with African masks and Swahili bric-a-brac, the veranda is a better spot to watch the waves by day or stargaze at night.

Open daily 11 am to 10 pm.
