Food and drink
What hits the few tables between noon and 2.30pm is high-quality cooking with a fishy slant and a gourmet touch here and there. The seafood antipasto couldn’t be fresher and is big enough for two, the inky squid risotto is excellent and the grilled tuna with balsamic vinegar a treat. I always try to leave room for the chocolate mousse with candied fruit.
Loud with bantering locals and remarkably welcoming.
On the long Venice-facing fondamenta (canal-side walk) on the Giudecca island. There are a few tables inside, but I always try to grab one on the fondamenta outside, with magnificent views across to the Zattere on the far side of the Giudecca canal.
At about 30 euros a head for a three-course meal, this is true value.
