Restaurants in Venice
Why do I always return here when décor is nothing special and always skip their food? For a quick boost of their tasty Girani brand coffee served at the bar in back at normal prices and to schmooze with the woman at the cash register, who has a keen sense of humor and has never steered me wrong. If you want to sit down, even inside, the price zooms... so head outdoors to Piazza San Marco where the setting is better. Sip a good cappuccino and enjoy the show. Open until midnight.
Trattoria da Romano (Burano)
Art on the walls often is by customers — one named Henri Matisse — who dropped in. Thanks to Romano’s love of artists the interior is an eclectic mini-gallery. Tradition has since passed to Romano’s son on this island of colorful houses and disappearing lace-makers. Fish is the specialty. For antipasto, the gamberetti del mare and sardines in saor is especially good. Risotto al Romano is with lagoon fish is creamy (€13). The seafood soup, brodetto, is also a hit, as is the mixed fried fish (€24).
Livio Felluga’s Pinot Grigio (€16, half bottle) beautifully enhanced the food as did the same winery’s Bianco delle Venezie Shárj’s (Chardonnay and Ribollo Giallo) (€22). There wines aplenty to choose from (some 55 from Venice and Friuli alone). Regular diners frequently outnumber the tourists, a group that has included Katherine Hepburn, Keith Richard, Ezra Pound, Michelangelo Antonioni, Chaplin, Fellini, and Armani. Warm service, lovely inside or out, and good food once inspired Arrigo Cipriani, owner of Harry’s Bar in Venice, to write: "Here, I feel like a human being." Ditto! — Judy Edelhoff
Vini Da Gigio
The place may be packed with tourists, but you can still dine well with Paolo and Laura. Paolo selects excellent wines. Pumpkin and shrimp risotto is delicate and tasty. Grilled vegetables are especially good here. Laura makes the desserts — her excellent pannacotta with berries may be the best in town. The cozy atmosphere has wood beam ceilings, iron wall lamps, small prints, and wine bottles galore. €43 for 3 courses. On vaporetto line 1, the stop is Ca’ D’Oro. — Judy Edelhoff
