Restaurants in Venice

Seafood dominates Venetian cuisine. Try Alle Testiere in Castello or Osteria ai Quatro Feri in Dorsoduro. Typical dishes include sarde in soar (marinated sardines). A handful of restaurants like Ai Gondolieri, buck the trend and offer meat only. San Polo teems with traditional osterie like Antiche Carampane. Gourmet options such as Locanda La Cusina are found in San Marco. Last orders for lunch and dinner are around 2pm and 10pm. Service is typically 10-15%.
