Fodor's Expert Review L'Incontro
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
This trattoria between San Barnaba and Campo Santa Margherita has a faithful clientele of Venetians and visitors, attracted by flavorful Sardinian food, sociable service, and reasonable prices. Starters include Sardinian sausages, but you might skip to the delicious traditional primi, such as culingiones (large ravioli filled with pecorino, saffron, and orange peel). The selection of secondi is heavy on herb-crusted meat dishes such as coniglio al mirto (rabbit baked on a bed of myrtle sprigs) and the costine d'agnello con rosmarino e mentuccia (baby lamb ribs with rosemary and wild mint). This is one of the few restaurants in Venice that are meat only. No fish at all. If one of your party is vegitarian, the accomodating cook will make up a veggie plate, but this is really a place for carnivores.
