“Best ever Risotto with shrimp”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

Our tour group had a luncheon at Cafe Vecio on the island of Burano in Venice. Everyone raved about the risotto. The pasta, fish, salad and desert were all excellent. The service for our group of 40 was wonderful. The island is known for it's lace and colorful houses. We enjoyed the post luncheon shopping as well.

“Best risotto I've had!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2011

This delightful restaurant is on the island of Burano, well known for it's lace work. In the old days, the colour of your home was your postal address, on such and such a canal. Nowadays they do have street numbers, but the local government has decreed that all houses must retain the original colours, which has made for a very pretty town.

We went to the restaurant as part of a tourist day trip, the group leader said Cafe Vecio had the best risotto she had ever eaten, and I had to agree with her. I normally find risotto over-rated, but this dish was excellent, as were the other dishes experienced, a couple of which I have added photos. We had several courses, each one not being too large, but you could have top-ups if you liked. Apart from the risotto and prawn spaghetti, we had pesce alla grigila, fritto misto, insalatina and fruit and dessert.

Best to make a reservation as we tried to go back on our own for a second experience, but it was full with a tourist group.
