Fodor's Review

Around since 1965, Al Gatto Nero da Ruggero offers the best fish on Burano. "Each day our fisherman return with the best the lagoon has to offer," says the owner, who upon understanding he could not pursue his dream of being a musician, instead decided to make the kitchen sing. The fish is top quality and couldn't get any fresher; all pastas and desserts are made in-house; the fritto misto is outstanding for its lightness and variety of fish. Risotto de Gò (ghiozzo) is a Burano cucina povera standard that had almost disappeared from local menus until Anthony Bourdain introduced it to travelers. No matter what you order though, you'll savor the pride the owner and his family have in their lagoon, their island, and the quality of their cucina (maybe even more so when enjoying it on the picturesque fondamenta).
