Eating Green in Venice

Nutrition & lifestyle expert Sophie Eustache says “we are what we eat”

by Cat Bauer

Bistrot de Venise

Sergio Fragiacomo believes the history of Venetian cuisine reflects the history of the city. The Rialto market was once the world’s leading spice emporium, and exotic spices were a status symbol for the nobility. The Bistrot de Venise serves a contemporary menu using natural ingredients, as well as recreating ancient recipes, with an award-winning wine list.

Ristorante Wildner

An oasis in the middle of the masses, the veranda of Restaurant Wildner has a sparkling view of the lagoon. The Fullin family is passionate about simple, traditional Venetian cuisine, accompanied by artisanal wines and handpicked olive oil. The matriarch, Donatella, is in charge of the Slow Food of Venice organisation and makes all the desserts.

Al Vecio Marangon

Amarone by the glass, perfectly decanted, sets the tone for this tiny, pretty eatery tucked into a courtyard where you can lunch until 3pm and dine at 6pm. Like a nurturing mother, Marina Bobbo serves comforting local food in a cosy ambiance highlighted by an old “marangon” or carpenter’s table. Seats 28 inside and 20 out. Reservations advised.

Osteria Antica Adelaide

Alvise Ceccato takes green to the extreme. He puts his personal touch on every aspect of his pure Venetian food, delivering it from nature to your table. He knows his seafood, down to the zone, and where his gardens grow. He takes your order, cooks your food and serves it up with a little help from his friendly staff, jazz purring in the background.
