Venice Restaurants

Busa alla Torre da Lele

Updated 11/14/2013

Fodor's Review

A pretty square with olive trees and a well sets the stage for Da Lele, a favorite of the Muranese and returning travelers. On the ground floor of a dark-red building with a loggia, the restaurant stretches out on the campo, where you eat in the shade of large umbrellas. Check the blackboard for such daily specials as antipasto Busa, with granseola and garusol (sea snails); bavette alla busara (flat spaghetti with a hot, spicy shrimp and tomato sauce); and

baked rombo or branzino with potatoes. Homemade cookies are served with fragolino, a sweet, sparkling wine redolent of strawberries.

The Island Experience

When my wife and I had lunch there, the sun was out, a gentle breeze stroked us while shoppers wandered by. It was the perfect scene. The homemade pastas were the type of hardy, deeply favored dishes that leaves one thoroughly satisfied. A great value too!
