Sit in the sunshine, gaze at the canal, look at the 12th century church, eat the freshest calimari ever, linger over the housewine and an expresso... Sounds like heaven? Yes!

“Magic place and great food”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

I had the luck to eat at "Al Canton" in Murano, one of the most beautiful islands of Venice, with a friend of mine, who knows the owner.
I was pleasantly surprised by the setting, just in front of a beautiful church, with a small canal a few meters away from the restaurant, and Venetian people coming and parking with their boats.
The food was simply delicious: you should, of course, try seafood here.
My favorite was the "Spaghetti allo scoglio", or spaghetti with seashells, some "pachino" tomatoes (the small ones), great extra-virgin olive oil, and if you want a little parmesan.
The grilled calamaris were also superb.
Prices? Super affordable. This place is in Murano, therefore rents are cheaper than nearby Venice, and the owner can attract customers with low prices and excellent service.
Definitively recommended!!
