Trattoria al Gatto Nero

Top choice Venetian

in Murano, Burano & the Northern Islands

Don't expect fancy tricks from this 'Black Cat' – just excellent, traditional fare. Once you’ve tried the homemade tagliolini (ribbon pasta) with spider crab, whole grilled fish and perfect house-baked biscuits, the ferry ride to Burano seems a minor inconvenience – a swim back here from Venice would be worth it for the mixed seafood grill alone. Call ahead and plead for canalside seating.
