The attraction of Sant' Erasmo is that there ISN'T any night life! Often places are advertised as 'unspoilt' and they have half a dozen tavernas/ bars etc. catering for the tourists.
Here there is one pizzeria/ bar - which on the night I visited wasn't the most cheerful place to be. There is a restaurant, but not sure of opening times/ days.
Il Latto Azurro has some events, musical evenings etc- when guests are welcome to play/sing.
I particularly enjoyed sitting on the verandah, watching the sun go down, then as night fell, listening to the sounds from across the water, the cicadoes etc. With a can of beer from the fridge/bar in reception, a few olives, cheese and nuts, brought earlier in Brenzone (Lake Garda) and a book to read, I was quite happy. (I think cabin fever might have set in if I'd done this for more than a few nights though - I didn't see any other guests at night to chat to)
The last No 13 vaporetto from Venices Fondamente Nuevo leaves about 22.30 - check before You set off. The the night service continues, from a station at the other side of the bridge at FN. So if You want a livelier night, You can still stay out til the early hours in Venice, and return at sunrise!
Dress Code: Come as You are! I was there at the end of June, and it got a bit cool at night, one night was quite windy, but this might have been unusual.

Luggage and bags: If staying on Sant'Erasmo it is a 10 minute walk to Il Latto Azzuro - I ended up pulling my (heavy) case on wheels (This was my last destination in a 12 day trip to Italy) along the road in the heat of the June sun. If You phone ahead, the staff will collect You in their mini bus.
For a Day visit - a Day sac to carry your camera, food, drink etc. There is one pizzeria/bar (and a restaurant plus a small general store - which I didn't see) so bring food and drink (and anything else needed for Your day out ).
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: comfy walking shoes, or suitable for cycling. Sant' Erasmo is quite exposed, so clothing to protect from the sun, and a warmer top for when those breezes hit the shoreline.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: No pharmacy on Sant' Erasmo, so bring all essential medication with You - carry enough in case You're delayed getting back to Your hotel in Venice - bad weather/Vaporetto strikes could happen - it's only 25 mins away by vaporetto, not as if You're in the middle of no - where, but if You've left an asthma inhaler, insulin etc. in your hotel room expecting to be back 'on time' it could be a problem.
Sun protection, mossie repellent etc.
Photo Equipment: Whatever You need to capture the scenes across the lagoon, sunsets, birds etc. I'm not sure of the opening times of the one shop on the island, or if it stocks film or batteries etc.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: I'm not sure if camping is allowed on Sant'Erasmo. There is a small beach, for sun bathing, swimming. Kayaks can be hired from Il Latto Azurro. Bikes can be rented from near the Vaporetto station and at Il Latto Azurro
Miscellaneous: Binoculars, for views of the neighbouring islands, birds etc.
Books, art equipment, puzzles, radio/ i-pod etc - If staying on the island, there is little to do, so this is your chance to catch up on your reading etc, and chill out. Il Latto Azurro has books, but they were mainly in Italian.
