We had lunch at Mario Alla Fava on the recommendation of our hotel. It was terrific food. A little difficult to find but well worth the search. Great pre-main course salad and wonderful pasta. Extremely friendly and helpful staff.

Description
In the heart of Venice, close to Rialto Bridge and ten minutes from S.Marco Square, you will find the restaurant Da Mario alla Fava opened since 1960. The menu is based on recipes from traditional Venetian cuisine, recipes reworked and lightened for today's preferred tastes, with the interjection of creative reinterpretation, fresh seafood dishes as well as a tasty vegan menu. Fine desserts are home made, created with special attention at the moment. In summer the restaurant has a beautiful terrace beside a typical Venice Canal, ideal for a candle light dinner. One wall of the restaurant is lined with hundreds of photographs of famous celebrites who have enjoyed Da Mario alla Fava. Recalling Mario alla Fava motto: "If you are sad and bored with life, you will rediscover joy at Da Mario alla Fava". Nel cuore di Venezia, a soli due minuti dal Ponte di Rialto e meno di dieci dalla Piazza S. Marco, si trova il Ristorante da Mario alla fava. Il ristorante aprì le sue porte nel lontano 1960. La cucina alterna piatti della tradizione classica veneziana opportunamente rivisitati e resi più leggeri, secondo il gusto attuale, a preparazione più creative, principalmente specialità di pesce e una ricca alternativa vegan. I dessert sono tutti fatti in casa e particolarmente curati. In estate è possibile cenare al lume di candela in una terrazza adiacente un tipico canale veneziano. Una delle pareti del ristorante è ricoperta da centinaia di foto che ritraggono personaggi famosi passati da Mario alla Fava. Il nostro motto è: "Se sei triste e della vita hai noia, da Mario alla Fava troverai la gioia"
