You can cross the bridge to Mazzorbo and visit the Antica Trattoria alla Maddalena
I really enjoyed the local wild duck.
When we visited, we were the only non-Italians or possibly non-Venetians in the place.

This is a review of Antica Trattoria alla Maddalena
You should only go if you want a "proper" lunch. It is not a "pizza between two" sort of place ;-)

Opening Hours Noon-3p, 6p-10p F-W

This quiet, rustic restaurant has no pretensions. It is right next to the exit of the Vaporetto landing stage. This area is famous for hunting, so the game dishes are excellent.

Average Cost EUR 21


The clientele are local. The service is good and unpretentious.

Type of Cusine

It serves typical local cuisine, presented in the traditional way. The wine is all local.

If you love seafood, the Gatto Nero.

I second caroline's recommendation. We had a fabulous lunch at Il Gatto Nero. The seafood was simple but wonderful.

Miss Prism....sounds like a great recommendation! Is Antica Trattoria alla Maddalena next to the Mazzorba or the Burano Vaporetto landing?

Keep missing out on Il Gatto Nero...closed in November.

On stop away from Burano, there is another recommendation for a wonderful lunch....Locanda Cipriani. Delightful place for a leisurely lunch!!

Have a great time on the islands!!

We also went to Locando Cipriani for lunch - it was one of the highlights of the trip - they have a lovely terrace for outdoor dining as well as a garden for wandering when the weather is nice. Food was delicious, wine reasonable and tastey little extras were served. The service was just right - very gracious but not intrusive. I didn't think it was particularly expensive - no more so than many of the restaurants in Venice and the food was MUCH better! The vaparetto ride back to Venice was the perfect ending - great views of Venice from the lagoon. Have a wonderful trip!

Thingorjus and his friend, the Countess de Billy, also highly recommend Gatto Nero.

Hello, darling.

The Antica Trattoria alla Maddalena is by the Mazzorbo stop.
There is a bridge that takes you from Burano to Mazzorbo.

I'm not sure, but I imagine that boats will be more frequent to Burano.
It's a nice walk, anyway and not too far.

From Fondamenta Nuove, probably 30-40 minutes.
