Ristorante Cantinone Storico Venezia
Venice is inspiring and makes you dream at all times, there’s no artist in the world that didn’t visit this incredible city at least once. There’s a district in Venice that is a landmark for those who love art and culture, its name is Dorsoduro, an area full of museums and art galleries, a gathering place for artists of all sorts, painters, musicians, writers, etc…
It’s right in this district that we can discover the venetian Restaurant Cantinone Storico, in a quaint atmosphere, reminiscent of the city’s history. The restaurant is located in the canal Rio de San vio, which merges with the Canal Grande. This is a characteristic small canal, with gondolas passing through, conducting tourists in an almost surreal peace.
The tables outside offer a suggestive scenic view of the venetian life that makes you feel like time stopped. People passing by, gondolas gliding through, a calmness that lets you set your mind at rest and ease up.
There’s nothing better than our delights to get the most out of what Venice has to offer in terms of food culture and tradition. Our restaurant is famous for the wide variety of risotto, both with seafood, meat or vegetables, prepared according to the seasonality of the ingredients that we use.
The chef proposes a lot of gourmet meals, as well as local and traditional recipes, from appetizers with meat and seafood, raw or cooked, to our main courses, which are all rigorously homemade, like our fresh pasta and the bread, prepared with our flour.
The second plates, another Cantinone’s specialty, including different recipes of fresh catch or meat, along with a wide choice of seasonal sides and sophistication variables to amplify their flavors. Obviously, our dessert are also homemade as well, using high quality ingredients.
The Cantinone has been chosen as the best restaurant of the district, for both the quality of our meals and, also, according to many of our customers, for the wine list, personally handpicked by the owner, which is an expert sommelier. This diverse and extensive list offers the best wines of all the regions of Italy, from the most known to the finest, but also with local wines for those who want to discover the specialties of the territory. You’ll also find a special selection of Champagne.
We have a large terrace, suitable for any occasion, overlooking the lagoon, to make your lunch or dinner unforgettable, tasting besides our dishes also the romantic Venetian landscape, with its many colors and all the romance that this city offers to all the visitors.
The inner space is comfortable and elegant, we aim for sobriety so you won’t find anything particularly lavish or excessive, the furniture is contemporary, the tables are big and the chairs are comfy, the environment is cozy and pleasantly warm, we offer a great table service that our customers appreciate a lot.
In fact, our customers are tourists for the most part, nearly 60%, while the remaining part consists of local people or passing by. In both cases, a lot of customers come here because of word of mouth, which means that our food and our service is very much appreciated, and that’s why, at the end of each meal, we offer our best bitters and digestives!
