Salizzada San Moise, 1345 San Marco, Venice
This venue is owned by the Benetton family, and its interiors were styled by Milan-based minimalist designer Piero Lissoni. It is on two floors, with clean-honed wooden tables, plastic moulded chairs, grey walls, and a red mosaic bar. The classic drink is bucintoro, made of champagne and puréed strawberries. Local drinkers arrive from about 4 p.m. The dining room on the upper floor tends to attract visitors from abroad rather than locals, prices at about €75 per person.
