We walked by this restaurant while walking around the island, my wife and I looked at the plates served to the clients seated outside and agreed that the seafood was looking outstanding. We decided to give it a try and OMG, was it worth it. The mixed platter was superb with razor clams and scallops cooked to perfection, the seafood... More

The staff were pleasant and helpful. The food was very good, fresh and beautifully cooked. The price was the usual for Venice at around 80 Euros a head.

The place was full of well dressed locals. That was our first clue we hit the jack-pot! Incredible seafood, salads and pasta. The trip to Burano Island is worth this restaurant alone, but do yourself a favor and walk along the charming, colorful houses on the small isle.

The restaurant was amazing. The maître de/owner was so welcoming and attentive. From the refreshing complimentary glass of prosecco to the complimentary lemme cello finish, he personally made sure every guest was comfortable. The food was excellent and the sea bass as fresh as I have ever seen grilled to perfection. We ended with a tiramisu was the perfect end... More

We made a reservation and am glad we did as many people were turned away for lunch. We has the mixed fried seafood and every single thing on that plate was so flavoursome and tender. Wine and beer amazing as well as dessert. Service is impeccable. I hope to return one day!

We had been trying for a number of visits [over a nine year period] without reservations. This time we had one. It was the day of the regatta [June 8] and the water taxi schedules had been altered. It took us three hours to get there. After all that, we were treated like visiting royalty -- but I think everyone... More

We popped in here for lunch after dealing with & avoiding the hardsell for a glass sculpture on Murano. The glass factory put a private boat at our disposal and the boat's captain recommended Al Gatto Nero. Upon entering, I had no clue that this place had any claim to fame. I fully admit that I had no idea that... More

Went to Al Gatto Nero with extremely high expectations, given the rave reviews on tripadvisor. However, we found it strange that all the other tables in the restaurant were served complimentarz prosecco upon being seated while my friend and I appeared to be ignored by the service staff. Perhaps it was our youthful appearance but we are both past 21... More

Our first choice was closed, but we asked one of the local shop keepers as to who they would recommend and she suggested Gatto Nero. We turned out to have just an excellent relaxing lunch alongside a canal. We walked over and asked for a table. The waiter said to return in a half an hour and he could accommodate... More
