One of Venice’s finest restaurants, where a budget of around 80€ will buy you a delicious seafood meal. Everything is first-class, but the stuffed squid and Venetian-style tuna with white polenta are especially good, as are the fried soft-shelled crabs, in season. Start with the pesto artichokes and round the evening off with the homemade limoncello. The outdoor area, a small ivy-cloaked garden and courtyard, is a tranquil spot for dinner, but you’ll need to make reservations. The staff are very friendly and speak fluent English, but just be careful with daily specials, which are usually tempting but expensive—always confirm the price with your waiter before ordering.
