Description
Since 1875, the restaurant Trovatore is one of the most characteristic restaurants in Venice. Located near Piazza San Marco, in the central Calle delle Rasse (with access also from the parallel Calle degli Albanesi adjacent to the Bridge of Sighs) is appreciated among other things for its specialties seafood and Adriatic Venetian specialties, that can be enjoyed only in the lagoon. All in a friendly atmosphere, nice and cozy to make guests feel at ease as if they were in an ambience familiar to them.
