Fodor's Review

The former Promessi Sposi eatery was rejuvenated when three fioi (guys) with considerable restaurant experience joined forces. Join locals at the banco (counter) premeal for an ombra (small glass of wine) and cicchetto like polpette croquettes or violet eggplant rounds, or reserve a sit-down meal in the dining room or the intimate courtyard. A varied, season-centered menu includes local standards like calf's liver or grilled canestrelli (tiny Venetian scallops), along with creative, regional fusion variations incorporating classic Venetian fare, like homemade ravioli stuffed with radicchio di Treviso (red chicory leaves) or orecchiette ("small ear"–shape pasta) with a scrumptious sauce of minced duck. The service is friendly and helpful, but it's very popular among locals, so be sure to make a reservation (later is better for a more relaxed environment).
