“This historical tavern has been managed by the same family for more than a hundred years. Here "spritz" cannot be ordered since is exclusively available wine, usually accompained with a typical meat ball. The dishes offered are the ones of the Venetian cousine, highly suggested if you want to immerse yourself in the real Venice.”
