After a dismal dinner experience in nearby Ristorante Margherita, Il Burchiello restored not just our stomachs but also our faith in the availability of tasty local food at reasonable prices in the hinterland between Venice and Padua. Il Burchiello is a family business: that family still takes pride in what it does and it shows. The staff were very helpful and patient when dealing with queries on the menu in French and English (certainly more patient than I would have been!) and most dishes (pasta in particular) delivered lovely flavours (the fish main courses were somewhat less successful). We would have gone back the following evening had it not been their weekly closing night.

On a beautiful sunny Saturday in Venice last September, we embarked on a "burchiello" - so named after the commercial vessels that once plied the Brenta Canal, excited to be visiting some of the Palladian villas that line the canal. Seems everybody wants to get in on the burchielo act, and the tour operators had decreed that the lunch break should be at "Il Burchiello," restaurant, as our and other tour boats deliver unsuspecting travelers to its doors during the months when the tours operate. Talk about lambs to the slaughter! An exaggeration perhaps, but what else am I to think of the manner in which we were "fleeced" by the proprietors of this establishment? Their prices were outrageously expensive for very ordinary food. The service was abysmally slow. The bill was not presented until the boat was ready to leave, thus ruling out any discussion. I cannot imagine that the local Italians would pay similar prices for the dishes that were listed on our menus. Shame on the management of this restaurant. We did not go willingly to it, and when we are in the area again, we definitely will not be returning.

Althought a little pricey, the food was excellent and the service was good.
