This quite trattoria serves classics excellently prepared, including the best caprese we have had in Italy -- fresh tomatoes, a bit of lettuce, smooth creamy mozz and excellent balsamic and oil. The pasta are delicious as well. And the service is outstanding.

At the far end of the Zattere, this trattoria offers a panoramic view and regional cuisine - served by a charming waiter, or owner ? - at very reasonable prices.

Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob
