Ristorante da Celeste

Seafood in Giudecca, Lido & the Southern Islands

Halfway along Pellestrina, this simple restaurant serves lagoon-fresh fish on its pontoon terrace. Go at sunset, when the rose-tinted sky kisses the glassy lagoon, and let Rossano guide you through the best daily offerings from polenta with tiny shrimp to a whole host of cockles, clams, scallops, spider crab and – the house special – fish pie. Reservations essential.
