Food and drink
The emphasis here is on fish, and the seven-course fish taster menu at 80 euros is a good option if you’re flummoxed by the choice on the à la carte menu, where Venetian classics get some special treatment. (The six-course classic menu at 75 euros is meatier.) Raw fish looms large among the antipasti; the sweet-and-sour scampi in saor, made with leeks and ginger rather than the more traditional onions and sultanas, is one of my favourites. Rather than a risotto, try an orzotto – the same idea but made with orzo (barley). Fans return again and again for the hot chocolate flan.
Welcoming and low-key. There are tables outside in pretty Campo Santa Marina, but remember to book if you want to be sure of a table outside or in.
Not far from the Rialto, this osteria is located on a pretty square.
A three-course meal will cost you about 55 euros a head.
