Also known as Rosticceria Gislon, this no-frills spot is incredibly popular with locals, with a handful of small tables and bar stools and bigger tables in the upstairs dining room (which tends to be more expensive). Don’t be fooled by appearances—the food here is excellent, with a range of grilled fish and cheap seafood pastas on offer, and a tasty “mozzarella in carrozza” (fried cheese sandwich; 2€). Note that the food displayed on the countertop is re-heated to order, but still tastes good. Otherwise just sit at the counter and soak up the animated scene, as the cooks chop, customers chat, and people come and go. Order the roast chicken, salt cod, or polenta—typical Venetian fare without all those extra charges.
