Not a trattoria nor a restaurant, but a "gastrosteria"—a cross between the two—this under-the-radar little place serves imaginative food in an informal setting. This being Venice, there's a lot of fish, like mackerel with rhubarb and mussels, but also less obvious dishes, such as pumpkin risotto in a mulled wine risotto, and even French-style snails.
