Trattoria da Pampo

restaurants / Italian

Lonely Planet review

Even though this restaurant is opposite a park in the quietest end of the city, this place boasts ‘dal pampo non c’é scampo’ (there’s no getting away from Pampo) with reason – the ombre and cicheti are irresistible happy-hour lures. During the Biennale, flocks of American performance artists and German gallerists descend on outdoor seating, attack plates of seafood risotto and polenta con seppie in umido (with squid in a tomato-onion stew), and fly off to openings in a cloud of gauzy black crêpe.
