Don't miss if you go to Burano

Please do not miss this excellent restaurant while visiting Venice. Excellent service, staff speak different languages. Place is always pack so you will need to have a reservation in order to sit and enjoy a great meal.

Visited here after reading a Jamie Oliver recommendation. We weren't disappointed as the food was great. Really fresh seafood and a fantastic risotto! The service was very friendly with plenty of help with what to choose. A good atmosphere in the restaurant made it a really enjoyable lunch. Recommend booking in advance if going at a busy time of year.

This is the most wonderful place for lunch after a busy morning on Murano and Torcello. The freshest seafood I have ever eaten and langoustines that were just perfect, ask for tools to get at the claw meat which is the sweetest and be brave enough to try the Chef's hors d'oeuvres of the day fished for the previous night....

All of us getting some kind of seafood that was really fresh. Pasta dishes were great too. WE spent about 144 euros on lunch for four of... More

Burano is visually beautiful, with its brightly coloured houses. Al Gatto Nero prepares delicious fresh seafood dishes. The restaurant was packed and I was lucky to get a table on my own. If you're going to Burano, make sure you make a booking for lunch.

We found this restaurant just by chance during our stroll on the picturesque Burano Island. But it was really good choice. If you look for quality seafood restaurant with accomodating staff All Gatto Nero is absolutely right choice. We had the chance to try most famous dish of Burano Island, which is „risotto de gò“ i.e. risotto with cream from... More

Our Hotel mentioned this restaurant to go to if visiting Burano, and we are so glad that we did, it’s not cheap but the food is excellent, and the owner Max is lovely. He has quite a strong Glasgow accent and even looks like Scot, but he assures us he is Italian and only spent a few years in Glasgow,... More

Make reservations. We were lucky to get in without reservations but don't take the chance. Service was excellent. Their seafood is amazing. My husband had the best calamari ever. Huge portion. Don't pass up the chance to go here.

We arrived in Burano on a day trip from Venice (approx 45 mins) mainly to see the painted houses and lace making. We had spent a few hours in Murano at the glass factory and had been given this restaurant recommendation from Tizzt the lovely lady in the shop at the glass factory. We duly arrived in Burano and made... More

Mum and I arrived in Burano at 2pm on a Saturday and headed straight for the restaurant. It was absolutely packed, and they could not take any more reservations for the day but the lovely staff told mum and I to try popping back at 2:45pm-just before the end of the lunch service and they would see what they can...
