“Great welcome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

We arrived on burano ,with the intention of going to another restaurant , but it was closed, lucky us .we knew of Gatto Nero but had never been . We had to wait a while for a table but were given a glass of prossecco . The owner served us and we talked about Edinburgh as that is where he learnt his English . Soft shell crab and Frito misto beautifully light doesn't appear it's been deep fried. Chatted to the waiter who offered us grappa on the house . What a welcome back to venice

“Best meal we had in Venice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

Everything about this place is perfect: the food, the atmosphere, and the service are all top notch. I can't recommend it too highly.

“Excellent recommendation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

We have wanted to try this restaurant for ages but never had the time for a trip to Burano until this year. Managed to get booked in by our hotel concierge for lunch. We were greeted warmly by Max with a glass of Prosecco whilst our table was being prepared for us as we were an hour early for our booking. Max made suggestions for our meal and prepared each course freshly for us, and presentation was perfect as was the taste. With Max giving us personal attention and service the lunch was outstanding and cannot wait to return. We had fresh baby scallops, lobster spaghetti and sea bass al prepared simply and beautifully. We had a wonderful lemon vodka ice cream drink after our meal which I am going to try and repeat at home. Bravo Max for your time and effort given to us and for your hospitality. Look forward to meeting up again and having another chat !!

“Best House Wine In Italy.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

My family and I ate at Al Gatto Nero on a recommendation from a shop owner on the island of Venice and it was everything we could have hoped for. The food is authentic and the staff is kind and quick to help out with anything. We went over the lunch hour so we were able to et a able right away but it did seem to fill up rather quickly after we sat down. We ordered the house white wine, and enjoyed every last drop. It was easily the best wine we tasted while on our travels around Italy.

“Just delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

This is my place to enjoy gorgeous food when in the Venice area for the past 16 years. ,
The service is impeccable, although it became a bit more 'classy' the last few years the restaurant keeps its authentic Italian welcoming atmosphere. The cook coming out of his kitchen, greeting his regular customers with a warm welcome and even a cheeky remark.
All the dishes are delicious, my favourite by far is: Spaghetti alle vongole, simply the best!
The wine selection has been made with great taste and in harmony with the food menu.
