Upon entry, the tone is set: 'Here, no pizza, lasagne or tourist menu' warns your host in his baritone voice. This small trattoria of the San Polo district offers traditional Venetian home cooking. The menu is developed, depending on the market, around the fish that are among the best in the Rialto market, which is also close by.
Everything feels authentic in the kitchen, which you can witness as you actually enter the restaurant through it! Crab fritters, grilled octopus, filet of John Dory with smoked pumpkin cream and mushrooms, Venetian squid in ink and white polenta, all accompanied with the white wines of Friuli - all are so good they will barely touch your lips. For dessert, pay attention to the chocolate mousse with lime cream, mango and coconut foam. It is best to reserve, as the regulars are numerous - and often famous.
