Do Farai: a 1950s ambiance

family

The canteen for gondoliers and lovers of Venice: a place not to miss.

This is the restaurant of the gondoliers, whose tournaments are displayed in picture frames on the walls. The room is old, simple, and friendly. In summer, a large terrace is erected in the middle of Campiello dei Squelini. You suddenly feel part of a family celebration.

The Venetians converse from table to table, talking loudly but also respecting your privacy. Dino takes control, Stefano prepares fish. As a starter: scallops, razor clams, and sea bass carpaccio. Next, forsake the linguine this time for a delicious risotto with squid ink.

Warning: the dish is rich and it is impossible to go without dessert. We adore the sgroppino, a lemon sorbet with emulsified grappa that Stefano mixes to order.
