Fodor's Review

A nearly legendary restaurant established by a nephew of Arrigo Cipriani (the founder of Harry's Bar), this inn profits from its idyllic location on the island of Torcello. Hemingway, who loved the silence of the lagoon, came here often to eat, drink, and brood under the green veranda. The food is not exceptional, especially considering the high-end prices, but dining here is more about getting lost in Venetian magic. The menu features pastas, vitello tonnato (chilled poached veal in a tuna and caper sauce), baked orata (gilthead) with potatoes, and lots of other seafood. Vaporetto Line 10 runs every 30 minutes until 11:30 pm. Afterward it runs upon request; service is sporadic.
