I stumbled across the Osteria al Cantinon almost by accident one Sunday afternoon in April whilst taking a stroll north along the Strada Novo. Tucked away along a small canal side street beside the Campo della Maddalena I just caught a tantalising glimpse of the restaurant and thought it looked the ideal spot to put down the camera and sample a cold beer. As it turned out it was much, much more than a pit stop. Like many of the best eating places in Venice the Osteria al Cantinon is simple and beautiful. It announces itself quietly, drawing the eye in to linger over local hams, cheeses and fresh fruit beautifully displayed just inside the door. You just have to ask to see the menu and know it will be good. Throw in the canal side setting and friendly, professional and knowledgeable staff and there you have it - perfect. So perfect in fact we decided to eat there on Sunday and Monday evening. Try the fillet steak in green pepper sauce - fantastic.
