I Rusteghi (VE)

Imagine the wine-bar of your dreams: the best wines, great food, a cozy atmosphere, dim lighting, cool music…and a host you will feel like you’ve known him forever. I Rusteghi is all this and much, much more.
Here you can stop for lunch, dinner or a gourmet break with “noble” dishes such as sliced meat with Maldon salt or fresh fish carefully selected every morning at the famous Rialto market. With only a dozen seats inside the small Osteria and just as many in the little square, it’s definitely best to book in advance. Upon request, Giovanni, the host, can arrange for a visit to the Rialto market in order to choose the fish you will be eaten later, a great adventure to see how the “true” Venetian life is like.
