This unpretentious, family-owned osteria enoteca is one of the best dining experiences in Venice, with a menu that changes daily according to what’s available at the market (because the fish market is closed on Mon, no fish is served that day). Grab a table by the canal and feast on stuffed squid, pan-fried sardines and an amazing, buttery veal scallopini, or opt for one of the truly wonderful pastas. The tiramisu and chocolate torte are standouts for dessert. Something that’s likely to stay with you in addition to the food is the impeccable service, with wait staff happy to guide you through the menu, and offer brilliant suggestions for wine pairing.
