Corte Sconta

For some good fish cuisine Venice is the place to be. But! Be aware of all the tourist trap restaurants around San Marco square. Accidents soon happen. When it comes to fish, one of Venice’s best kept secrets is Corte Sconta. Don’t get lost in the small out-of-the-way Venician streets looking for this ‘strictly seafood’ restaurant. It’s not very out there, what makes it at the same time very well hidden for tourists and full of locals. On a nice summer day, there’s tables outside in the lovely courtyard. Don’t expect an English menu – or English speaking personnel for that matter – but don’t worry, it’s all just fish and pasta. Fresh from the sea and prepared with only high quality seasonal products. Try the frittura mista if you’re hungry for a huge plate of lobster, shrimp, calamari, soft shell crab and ginger clams.
