Expert review of Dalla Marisa

Unusual Venetian meat specialities in a boisterous trattoria frequented by locals.

When you just can’t face another fish, tiny, classic Dalla Marisa is the place for you: this wonderful Venetian matron is famous for the generous servings of rare Venetian meaty specialities… though when you book (and you’ll definitely need to book) make sure it’s for a day when she hasn’t suddenly decided to impose seafood on her clients.

Food and drink: 

Marisa’s risotto con le secoe (beef from around the spine) and her tagliatelle con sugo di masaro (duck sauce) are legendary. There’s nothing light about this home cooking, and some might even find it a touch too oily. But on a cold Venetian day with the wind chilling you to the marrow, this hearty fare will certainly set you up for a fresh bout of sight-seeing.

Ambience: 

Utterly simple and very boisterous, this is a very old-style eaterie for hungry locals. It’s no secret however, and curious (quieter) tourists are just as numerous. In summer, the few tables out on the fondamenta (canal-side walk) are quieter and very picturesque.

Service: 

Bustling, friendly and chatty.

Location: 

Right on the Cannaregio canal, by the Tre Archi bridge.

Price advice: 

A full meal will cost upwards of 35 euros. There’s a 15 euros lunch menu.
