Fiaschetteria Toscana information
A classic that has long maintained quality, the Fiaschetteria Toscana has sought-after super-Tuscan options on the menu of 600 wines, but it’s Venetian where it counts: the wild-caught lagoon seafood menu, especially the crudi , seafood risottos and frittura della Serenissima (a haul of lightly fried seafood). But you can also choose to rebel against the city’s pescatarian impulses with proper cuts of meat, including lagoon game and Chianina steak that makes pampered Kobe seem tough. Leave room for Mariuccia’s rovesciata, a Venetian take on caramelised-apple tarte tatin, and don’t miss lunch specials.
