Deutsch Der Besitzer Vincenzo hat das Gaststaettengewerbe ausgelegt, Er hat seit die Eroeffnung des Restaurants Fisch und Krebstiere zubereitet. Wir koennen jeden Tag bei Chioggia und Marano Fischmarkt beliefern, und so das Restaurant sieht wie ein Fischernetz mit Kaisergranat, Hummer, Langusten, Wolfsbarsch, Butten und so weiter aus, die wir im Hafen taeglich finden koennen. Der Chefkoch kocht mit Leidenschaft und Handfertigkeit und er vermischt die Rezepte aus Veneto Region mit den frischen Zutaten. In der Naehe von Vanilija a la Carte kann man verschiedene Sorten von Weisswein und Rotwein, die Vincenzo sehr gut kombinieren kann. Wegen dem Natur in der Umgebung ist die Atmosphaere des Restaurants gemuetlicher und freundlich und die Einrichtung ist modern.
