Take a trip to Sicily for a refreshing change to Venetian cuisine, with a menu rich in seafood pastas (such as a simple but delicious spaghetti alle vongole), and fresh tuna, sea bream, fabulous calamari and swordfish—the waiters will advise on the fish of the day and specials such as eggplant ragout. For dessert, you’d be remiss to ignore the utterly addictive tiramisu, and the evening is usually rounded off with complimentary limoncello. The location is charming; sit outside to enjoy the people watching in Campo Santo Stefano. On the downside, service can be hit and miss, and though the food is good, the high prices reflect the location rather than overall quality.
