This place is a definite must do if you're in Venice. Don't miss out on going to Burano because the island is quite picturesque, and book to go to Trattoria Al Gatto Nero. The food here is lovely, the restaurant very cozy, while classy at the same time, the staff knows how to advise properly and the food itself is... More

There is a reason why Al Gatto Nero is an icon on the island of Burano and while locals, Venetians and tourists flock to the restaurant the food is that good. Make sure you book ahead. Have a hearty lunch then go for a long walk around the island to work off the calories! Buon Appetito.

This is a beautiful restaurant. The food could not be more beautifully prepared. The service was excellent, the location was superb and overall it was a wonderful experience. It's not sensible to take the Vaporetto here; it is much nicer to take a water taxi.

A trip to Burano, Italy is not complete without dining at Al Gatto Nero (Black Cat). The seafood was simply outstanding. Without a doubt the freshest, simply prepared and best tasting seafood ever. This experience will take a long time to beat. Be warned: you must book ahead as the locals of Murano and Venice relish this place to dine.

What a fun night. We had missed their lunch serving so we decided to stay on the island until dinner, a long wait. But what a good thing we did. Had some amazing seafood here and would suggest anyone to do the same. Do NOT forget to get dessert and I must suggest the Panna cotta.

My friend and I had a day trip out to Murano and Burano whilst visiting Venice in July. I had read the reviews for this restaurant on Trip adviser and made a note to find this place for lunch. I should have booked!! Although there were only 2 of us, it seemed we would be disappointed to find a table... More

Horrible staff, impolite (I would say: rude!) waiters who did not speak neither English, nor German, not even French. We had to wait for a long time for menu, although there was not so many guests. I would definitely NOT recommend this place to anyone.
