Dorsoduro: Cantinone Storico

Fondamenta Bragadin 660/661 , Phone: 041 5239577

Reviewed by: Susie L from CA, review #3881

When: 2012

A warm and welcoming restaurant with caring service

Directions: In Dorsoduro, between the Accademia and the Guggenheim, just South of Campo San Vio.

Cantinone Storico is a wonderful restaurant with good food, caring service and a very pleasant atmosphere. We have probably eaten here about 30 times in the last 7 years, and always had a good experience!

Alessandro the owner, and his two children are a delight and truly have their guest's enjoyment in mind. You can't go wrong with the risotto Terra Mare or the spaghetti con vongole. The fish is always of the highest quality and we also enjoy the veal scaloppine. Often they will have something special in that day, such as cape lunghe (razor clams) which we have had grilled and on another occasion served in a fish broth with toasts. Both presentations were divine!

They rarely give us a menu any longer, instead preferring to confer with us on our mood and anything special that they may have in.

In warm weather, they offer canal-side seating in what is a truly lovely neighborhood.
