The menu offered by Osteria Al Cantinon reveals Serghei’s long experience in many top-level kitchens in Italy and Europe. The dishes on offer are in part rigorous tributes to a well-established tradition: fish Risotto of the day, Venetian style liver, large fried fish and vegetables. In part, curious and sought-after original creations where a profound knowledge of the raw materials produces a balance of flavours worth trying: scallops with Jerusalem artichokes and porcini mushrooms, squid with guacamole and vegetables, cuttlefish spaghetti in black with potato and saffron cream, St. Peter’s fillet in pumpkin flower and Wasabi mayonnaise, octopus cooked twice with salted zabaglione, beer marinated sirloin.

The kitchen at the Osteria al Cantinon also prepares pasta, gnocchi, bread and breadsticks, which are made using organic flour and sourdough. Gris breadsticks can be purchased at the Osteria: a gourmet baked product that can be used not only at the table but also as a snack or accompaniment for an aperitif. Desserts are always home-made and vary according to availability and seasonality: sweet surprises not listed on the menu that the staff will be able to suggest with competence, also in combination with some dessert wines.

beautiful location for those who like to experience the romantic and quiet Venice. well-kept tables under the portico next to a canal where only a few gondolas pass. atmosphere of the past. the dishes prepared with care with excellent and genuine dishes, fresh fish and good wine.
