Antiche Carampane Trattoria
As one of our favourite trattorias in Venice, Antiche Carampane is a fantastic place to experience some of the finest local seafood in Venice.
Hidden away in a quiet residential area of the San Polo district, escape the tourist masses and settle in for a long and indulgent meal of delicious, heart warming traditional Italian cuisine with a local crowd (and a smattering of in-the-know visiting international foodies). With no written menu and just a spoken list of daily seafood-inspired specials, let the brothers Giovanni, Guido and their sister Piera guide you through the best of their seafood-focused menu. Expect delicacies such as expertly grilled branzino, the freshest raw fish and shellfish, delicious homemade pasta with tender fried chipirones, and one of the best frito misto in town. A unique and unforgettable dining experience awaits you at Antiche Carampane, home of genuine Venetian hospitality and excellent cuisine. The only challenge is finding it, so make sure you bring your map as you’re likely to need it. Bookings essential.
