Food and drink
The short menu in this trattoria changes regularly, and covers meat and fish. Though Venetian dishes – given a bit of a creative twist – are most numerous, the Sicilian chef adds a little southern Italian flair here and there.
The modern dining room, with its exposed brick walls, and elegant mix of dark wood and warm colours, is tiny (tables outside double the number of covers in fine weather) and generally hosts more locals than tourists who rarely make it up to the northern reaches of the city.
Professional, attentive and discreet.
Far off the beaten track in northern Cannaregio, the Orto dei Mori is not far from the Madonna dell’Orto church.
High-ish prices are matched by the standard of the food. Expect to pay 40 euros or more a head for a full meal without wine.
