Osteria al Pesador

Venetian in San Polo & Santa Croce

Watch the world drift down the Grand Canal outside or canoodle indoors, but prepare to sit up and pay attention once the food arrives. Pesador reinvents Venetian cuisine with culinary finesse: cicheti feature mackerel with balsamic-vinegar saor marinade and paper-thin lardo crostini with mint oil, while mains include red-footed scallops kicking wild herbs across squid-ink gnocchi.
