Restaurant Antico Pignolo
- Calle Degli Specchieri, 451
The "Old Pine Nut" occupies a former spice shop dating from the 1200s; adventurous types might want to arrive by boat, as the place has its own private landing.
If you're lucky enough to be in town when it's warm, book a table in the exquisite garden, where white flowers match the table settings.
Top-notch staff, also clad in white, serve creative interpretations of Venetian classics.
The crostino di polenta con baccalà mantecato (creamy salt cod served on polenta) may be the definitive version. The carefully culled wine list alone is worth the trip.
Capacity of max 160 pax; n. 3 rooms available.
Located 2 minutes on foot far from St. Mark’s Square.
