We also offer seasonal seafood dishes, such as moeche (small soft-shell crabs eaten fried in the spring and fall). You will always find a vast assortment of fresh vegetables (cooked and raw) like salads, artichokes, and castraure (artichoke buds typical to our islands).

In addition to these local plates we also prepare other Italian dishes of meat and fish for first and second courses every day.

All desserts are homemade. L’Amoretto is a dessert exclusive to our restaurant, made from a recipe by our first cook, Rosi. We also make tiramisù (lady fingers soaked in coffee with mascarpone cheese and cocoa), a variety of baked tarts, and always have Venetian cookies to eat along with one of our sweet wines.

All our dishes can be eaten at the bar.

For vegetarians we have a large selection of dishes made from fresh vegetables.
