Montin was the famous ex-hangout of Peggy Guggenheim in the 1950s, frequented by Jimmy Carter, Robert De Niro, and Brad Pitt, among many other celebrities, but is the food still any good? Well, yes. Grab a table in the wonderfully serene back garden (covered by an arching trellis), itself a good reason to visit, and sample Venetian classics such as sardines in soar (a local marinade of vinegar, wine, onion, and raisins) and an exquisite seppie in nero (cuttlefish cooked in its ink). For a main course, it’s hard to beat the crispy seabass (branzino) or legendary monkfish, while the lemon sorbet with vodka is a perfect, tangy conclusion to any meal.
