I've never eaten such Tasty Risotto. This Venetian Restaurant is Excellent!
I was not planning to eat at Trattoria Alla Madonna. But it still attracted me, and I had read good reviews about this Venice restaurant. Also, sweet reviews, but I have to try it by myself…
I was surprised. The restaurant was packed. I noticed the restaurant was quite large at the entrance, with many tables. You first see the buffet bar, where all kinds of shellfish, salads, and fish are ready to serve the guests.
We only had to wait for five minutes before we were assigned a table. Well, table...
A small table and you're dining close to your fellow guests. It is cozy because you have to share the vinegar and olive oil. And we could easily see what the other guests ate (this makes it easy to order ;-).
As an appetizer, we ordered the famous Venetian fried sardines with salad. I read that the fried eel (Anguilla frittata) is delicious.
And, of course, the spritz that goes with it. My wife had the unusual stuffed crab as a natural high fusion. So delicious we've never eaten.
After a tip from our fellow table neighbors, we ordered the extra 'Risotto.' Ooooh, this is incredible. I've never eaten such tasty risotto. Along with the spritz and other wine, it was a top dinner.
The service of this Venetian restaurant is excellent! The senior servers are taking their time to cheer you up, making you comfortable. They are focused on their guests to give them an enjoyable evening. You only hold your finger up, and they are at your table.
Ultimately, the menu is quite varied, with lasagna, spaghetti, and soup. But the fish dishes predominate.
And the bill? I think it was cheap, with a full menu and unique dishes. I paid EUR 80, - (2 people). We left Trattoria Alla Madonna with many sweet gestures towards the servers.
Once outside, it seemed as if the night had just begun. It was about 8:30 p.m. when we finished eating, and there was a long lineup to eat at the restaurant.
And the feeling when you see that, you know you've been lucky. We were pleased that the waiter got us ceded immediately. This dinner was a fantastic experience at Restaurant Trattoria Alla Madonna.
