I first went there 30 years ago - walked in and ate the most incredible seafood. Have returned every time I visit Venice - the same attention to detail, service, freshness and simple cooking never disappoints. Booking by phone essential. Worth the 45 min boat ride from the city.

We have visited Venice multiple over more than 12 years now. Every holiday we take the boat trip to picturesque Burano once or twice. Burano is a welcome relief from the bustle of Venice. On days of reasonable visibility the views back across the lagoon to the Venice skyline are simply stunning and worth making the trip in themselves. The... More

There were 2 reasons why we made the trek to Burano: 1) to take instagram pics of the colorful houses and 2) to eat at Al Gatto Nero. We've traveled to many places in Italy and this is still the #1 lunch we've had in the whole country! The food is so gently and freshly prepared. The seafood is A+... More

Restaurants in Venice do not always get a good review but this one must rate as a top table. Wonderful tasty food served by cheerful and experienced waiters looked over by the genial Ruggero, a complete dining experience even if you have to go to Burano-which is itself well worth thetrip

2nd time we've been to this restaurant. Sometimes you find it disappointing the second time but absolutely not here! Once again had the spaghetti alle Vongole followed by the mixed grilled fish - absolutely delicious! My husband had the antipasti followed by the sea bream. Then, greedily, we both had the crema alla mascarpone - to die for! Complementary glass... More

Staff speaks English very well, but didn't answer our emails, so you should order a table by phone. Great service. Wine a little pricey. Didn't choose our dishes well, ordered mix of fried seafood and fried calamary, two of the same. Seafood was fine, but nothing spectacular. Maybe should have tried something else instead. Still, probably one of your best... More

First and most important, the food is excellent. We had the whole roasted bronzino for our main course, which was filleted and served to us table-side. Otherwise, we did not order off the menu but instead told our waiter that we would trust him--he selected an excellent assortment of lagoon seafood for us as well as a wonderful wine. The... More
