Osteria Antico Giardinetto

Osteria Antico Giardinetto is a homely family-run restaurant, close to the Rialto Fish Market, serving exquisite Mediterranean food and typical Venetian cuisine with fresh fish, meat-based dishes, and homemade pasta and desserts.


Venice has a large variety of restaurants, and as usual with Italian cities, the best dining experience can be enjoyed at a simple neighbourhood trattoria off the tourist rabble. The city boasts many culinary specialities, like bigoli in anchovy sauce or castraure — tiny artichokes with Parmesan shavings and olive oil.
