Description

Anno Domini 1295, Messer Marco Polo si trova sulla galea che lo sta riportando finalmente, nella sua cara Venezia... E' una notte splendida, un leggero e caldo vento di Scirocco spinge la galea su quel pezzo di Adriatico e Marco freme per la voglia di arrivare!...Chissa' se trovera' i suoi vecchi amici... e i parenti? Sapeva poco o nulla di loro...chissa' se avrebbe trovato la sua vecchia zia...si quella che da piccolo gli preparava quei bei pranzetti...gia' gli veniva l'acquolina in bocca pensando di poter riassaggiare dei "bigoi in salsa" o "il guazzetto di pesce"...anche perche' l' ultimo vero pasto era ormai lontano e in nave, a parte qualche galletta e della carne essiccata, ..non si mangiava un gran che'... Se lo ricordava bene quell' ultimo pasto a Trebisonda, quella fusione di gusti arabi e asiatici, l' odore delle spezie... il curry, il cinnamonio, lo zenzero...e che vini potenti...chissa' se avrebbe potuto riassaggiare di nuovo quei sapori... Intanto il suo sguardo correva veloce all' orizzonte, cercando l' alba di un nuovo giorno, il mare era calmo, la galea scivolava decisa col vento in poppa...un marinaio, in piedi di fronte a lui, gli indico' la LUNA....sembrava SEDUTA sul confine tra cielo e mare, tra assoluto e infinito... LUNA SENTADA ...MARINER IN PIE 2011... Eccoci dunque di nuovo a Venezia ed anch'io come Marco ritrovo tutte le sensazioni che ho provato sulla mia pelle ...sensazioni di viaggio ad Oriente , scoprendo tanti sapori e consistenze nuove che affascinano e conquistano il palato e la fantasia....ma allo stesso tempo senza dimenticare la nostra tradizione.... LUNA SENTADA...e' dunque un viaggio gastronomico che parte da Venezia e tocca come nel viaggio di Marco Polo tante tradizioni culinarie diverse, quindi il suo viaggio... il mio viaggio ...volete farlo diventare anche il vostro? Seguitemi... ****** Anno Domini 1295 Messer Marco Polo is aboard the galley that will finally take him back to his beloved Venice... It is a beautiful summer night, a gentle breeze of the warm Scirocco wind blows the boat to destination...Marco's thoughts go out to his friends and relatives... little news does he have of them... so much time had passed... Will I find my dear old aunty...the one who cooked such delicious meals for me?...Marco thought about all the mouthwatering dishes ..."bigoli in salsa", "guazzetto di pesce" much time had passed since his last real meal...on the boat the lived on dried meat and biscuits... Well did he remember that amazing last meal in Trebisonda and its fusion of asian and arabian flavours, the strong scent of the spices, curry, cinnamon, galanga mingled with the fragrance of mediterranean wines would he ever taste these flavours again? He glances at the horizon searching the sky for the dawn, the sea is quiet and the ship slowly rolling a sailor in front of him points to the moon...a moon that seems to be seated between the sky and the sea...between the infinite and the absolute.. LUNA SENTADA ...MARINER IN PIE 2011... Now back in Venice like Marco I felt all these sensations during my travels discovering new flavours and tastes that conquer the palate and the imagination... at the same time one cannot forget our own culinary traditions.. LUNA SENTADA is a culinary voyage that takes you from Venezia to many different gastronomic worlds, on his trip, on my trip.. be my guest and travel with me...

Excellent food, charming location with gondolas passing by. GooglePlace - July 2017

We had two servers, one was very nice, the other was a more typical venetian (not rude, but not overly nice). Service was good despite a mix up with the appetizer which was quickly fixed. The setting is gorgeous and there is little tourist traffic. We sat right on the canal and watched the gondolas go by as we ate by candlelight. Appetizer was beef carpaccio, the best I've had. For the mains we had the rabbit tagliatelle and tortellini with red wine reduction. Mains were very good. The bottle of wine we ordered (only available by the bottle) was excellent. Desert we split a tiramisu, which was very good with coconut. GooglePlace - June 2017

Cucina fusion tra tradizione Veneziana e asiatica. Molto piccolo, conviene prenotare. Foursquare - May 2017

Small Venetian restaurant with excellent service. Venice is an expensive place to eat out (other than pizza) and there are many restaurants that charge a high price and don't deliver the goods. This place was recommended by our concierge, we liked it so much we went back the following night. Very surprised by the odd negative review. The owner and chef Alfredo greeted us at the door, we watched him make our food through the glass partition and he visited us a couple of times to make sure we were happy. As said in other reviews mix of Venetian with an Asian twist. GooglePlace - January 2017

Wine bar only but the service was appalling. I am a winemaker and my wife sells wine. We were staying next door so went for an aperitivo. We obviously did not look enough like locals. We ordered wine by the glass from the blackboard. The arrogant bar tender did not have what my wife ordered open so made her have something else which was more expensive and very poor. I realised at the end of my glass that he had served me a completely different variety to what I ordered!! I only realised this when I saw an unopened bottle of the wine I wanted on the bar. Our bar food ordered never arrived. We were sitting beside the bar!!! I guess we were too polite for this place. Stay away unless you wear white pants! GooglePlace - September 2016
