Ai Gondolieri

Address: Dorsoduro 36, Ponte Del Formager

Starve yourself before coming to this small restaurant in the quiet backstreets of chic Dorsoduro, the home of the most stylish Venetians.

The food and wines are superb, though fairly expensive. The surroundings are simple, they play (mostly) quiet jazz and the service is excellent.

Booking essential. Closed Tuesdays.
