Tips for The Travelers:
Best restaurants, food markets, shops, hidden gems and much more!
Al Vecio Cantier
Restaurant
Via Della Droma, 76 , Venice; Tel.: 041-5268130
The wild scenery, with intersecting canals and reeds, contributes to the appeal of one of the liveliest places on the Lido, located in Alberoni not far from the golf course. There's efficient cicheti service, but the restaurant deserves a longer visit for a relaxing meal in the best Venetian tradition: try whipped baccala' with polenta, or tagliolini con gamberetti e carciofi (with shrimp and artichokes) in spring. Homemade desserts include lemon and almond tarts. Outside dining is in a pretty garden; reservations recommended.
