Venice offers many suggestive places and you don’t always need to go to the usual restaurants. Even simply by getting lost walking through the calle you will discover a lot of interested niches. We list some of them below:
Osteria Al Squero: Venetian wine and croutons in an old-time restaurant with exposed bricks, wooden counter and vintage photos. Here you can really relax and eat some good food!
Trattoria da’a Marisa: Venetian fixed menu in a no-frills restaurant with black and white images, wooden counter and dehors. Excellent place that will take you back to the past. The place is not very big, book in advance!
Ai Mercanti: Creative Italian dishes served in an elegant atmosphere between candles and decorative design elements. The restaurant is located in a small square not really easy to find but, believe me, it is definitely worth it! The price is a bit high, but for once you can afford it from 😀
Osteria Al Portego: Near the Rialto Bridge, it is an excellent place for an aperitif and cicchetti. The environment is informal and the staff are very kind, they eat very abundant typical Venetian dishes. Tables are limited so you have to book in advance!
