This Restaurant Vini da Gigio in Venice is for several years my favorite restaurant when it comes to food.
The location of this restaurant is on a side street of the busy 'Str. Nuova' Railway Station to the Rialto. It is a restaurant run by brother and sister, Paolo and Laura Lazzari.
The restaurant is small and cozy with a good reputation. As the name suggests, they specialize in wine.
The beautiful thing is that the food is authentic. You can enjoy authentic Venetian food in a quiet location in Venice. The local produce and seasonal dishes make this a TOP Venetian restaurant.
And yes, I too studied the best travel guides. In the past, this restaurant is touted for example in the 'Lonely Planet.' I became a fan, and I'm regularly visiting because I know it's excellent! Do you have any tips restaurant?
It is logic; brother and sister run the restaurant Vini da Gigio since 1981. The dishes are always made with passion and served with care.
The menu includes fish and crabs caught in the local lagoon. It is served fresh, well grilled, baked and fried. Besides fish, there are meat dishes. Everything is seasonal, and the ingredients, rice, polenta, legumes, grains and cheese - are locally sourced. Even the wine list reveals the passion: at least 500 wine labels are always available.
The scenic table is better to book in advance. A couple of times I could only go after 21:00. But it is worth it.
The last time I went to eat at the best eating place "Vini da Gigio" my wife had again taken Spaghetti with squid ink (black).
This lovely black ink sauce meal is her favorite. On the menu, this is the "Spaghetti con le seppie" and costs EUR 14.00.
I had the fried squid. Which are very tasty, crispy outside and so fresh it is not robust. As a pre-starter, we had a bowl of local fresh fish and shellfish.
With the dessert, I took the creme brulee which has flames when the waitress puts it on the table. The senior waiter was a woman and well known with ingredients and spices. She was nice, helpful as always.
Including a good wine we had an evening with a total cost of EUR 130, -. This dinner has a perfect price, and the quantity is in good shape, a real culinary Venetian cuisine.
