Restaurants in Giudecca and the Lido, VeniceIt’s important to check that the restaurant at which you’re interested in eating is open! Restaurants in Venice do not all close on a Monday, rest days vary, and not all open at night. Booking is highly advisable, especially when you want an outside table. And not all restaurants (especially the smaller ones) take credit cards.
Calle delle Erbe, Giudecca 270
A family restaurant for around 100 years. Menu is almost exclusively fish. Must book for few outside (and desirable) tables. No credit cards. Some reports that food quality has gone down – tell us!
