Typical Venetian cuisine is based on fish dishes but they also have magnificent rice and polenta recipes.
Restaurante Da Raffaele
In the Restaurante Da Raffaele you can enjoy typical dishes from Venice and the Veneto region. Worth a mention are the fish and seafood dishes. Particularly enjoyable, apart from its superb menu, is the lovely terrace located on the Bridge delle Ostreghe which enables you to experience the wonderful sensation of eating on the Grand Canal and enjoy the most authentic Venetian atmosphere with its serenades at night. The restaurant also has a cosy interior; the walls with apparent brickwork and the fireplace give it a special touch. The décor is thoughtful and includes a collection of ancient objects. It can accommodate 220 diners.
Trattoria (Mesón) Alle Vignole
This restaurant is located on the island of Vignole, popularly known as the Garden of the Serenissima. In this restaurant you can enjoy unparalleled sunsets with the Venice lagoon in the background. The restaurant has been recently renovated, but without losing its family touch. Enjoy the typical Venetian dishes prepared by the Vianello family.
Trattoria Da Ignazio
The Scroccaro family has run la “Trattoria da Ignazio” since 1951. The restaurant is situated in a narrow street in Venice, between the Basílica de los Frailes and la Casa de Goldoni, and has its own garden. We recommend the fish and rice specialities. Other dishes worth trying are noodles with crab from the lagoon, crayfish with artichokes or asparagus, polenta, fried fish, sea bass and baked turbot. Delicious meat specialities also figure on the menu; the wine cellar has an excellent selection of national wines.
Restaurante Cantina Canaletto
The Restaurant Cantina Canaletto is a restaurant and wine cellar; it has a terrace in summer. It combines typical Venetian cuisine with creative cooking. The meat is grilled on the huge indoor barbecue which stands in the middle of the main dining room. It also has an excellent wine selection.
