This was exceptional restaurant! Great food, fresh crabs, shells, shrimps, fish pate and many more. So delicious, we were enjoying for a few hours there! But be aware of the opening and closing hours that are a little bit strange, but guys you'reon island! So make a reservation and take it easy and just enjoy!!

Serene Chef Ruggero periodically emerges from the Il Gatto Nero restaurant to greet the restaurant diners. One evening he told me his story about naming the restaurant and hoping that its title would bring him luck, and it truly attracted the attention of lady luck (La Fortuna!) Inhabitants of the Venetian lagoon count their fortune in terms of black cats... More

Best octopus I have ever had! Service was great - everything started with a glass of proseco. We called ahead for a reservation and I recommend that, the restaurant was full. Also, be aware you get what you pay for here... The meal was awesome and with plenty of proseco, our meals were close to 50€ each, we added a... More

Nothing cheap about this place, the indication on tripadvisor is not correct! €4.0 cover charge and 90% of dishes in the €20 range, where you would expect it to be around €10.

Amazing meal! Delightful waiters! Best meal I've eaten in Italy! Max and Enrico served our meal. We chose to wait for an outside table, and Enrico kindly delivered two chairs and a glass of wine to where we were standing! Outstanding service!!!.

Is there really anything else to say other than the best seafood restaurant in Burano with super fresh seafood, so fresh we saw the fisherman selling the chef his catch. This lovely addition to the colorful island of Burano is a must see and a place to set aside a few hours to eat delicious food. While waiting we saw... More

This charming restaurant in beautiful Burano offers a wide selection of delicious local seafood specialties. The meal was memorable, especially the grilled langoustines and risotto. The house wine was good and reasonably priced. The service was impeccable and friendly.

We booked this restaurant on the recommendations on Trip Advisor, we were not disappointed. We were served a complementary prosecco. For a starter we had pasta with tomato and prawns, followed by turbot, all delicious. Our waiter recommended a stunning bottle of wine and we finished with a complementary limoncello. A memorable meal and a beautiful location. Definitely need to... More

Al Gatto Nero was a good place to have a meal when we visited Burano island. We weren't too sure on what to choose as some plates were quite expensive and others being sharing platters it was a tough choice, but we went for Cuttlefish a la Burano and it was delicious! I'm not sure what the white/yellow things that... More
