After visiting the impressive church Madonna dell’Orto and Tinoretto's house near Campo dei Mori you should avoid a visit in the Osteria L'Orto dei Mori. We sat quite a while outside watching the waiter and the chef ignoring us. When he finally arrived at the table his first and only word was: "Lunch!". I have to confess my Italian is not very good but I am rather sure that wasn't an address of welcome. It was about 2.30 p.m. and I explained, that we don't want to have lunch at this time of day but that we would like to have something to drink. This was fine in several restaurants in different parts of Venice during the last three days but not in the Osteria L'Orto dei Mori. The chef barked at us, that this is a restaurant and if we only want to drink we must move somewhere else because here all the guests are eating. Obviously, this applied only for us, because at the next table a man was reading a newspaper and thinking only mineral water. We didn’t make the effort to find out if the chef had something against women, tourists or Austrians. We looked for another restaurant, something I recommend to anyone who intends to visit the Osteria L'Orto dei Mori.

Locale molto bello, piccolo, intimo. Piatti gustosi, staff gentile, posizione tranquilla. Caffè 2,5€ e coperto 3,5€ sono, a mio avviso, davvero un'esagerazione.

Well prepared fresh local affair, slightly off the beaten path. We enjoyed the Mediterranean stew and the Amatriciana (bacon and tomato) pasta. Both carefully prepared, interesting and delicious. We finished the meal with a red wine pear with ricotta cheese ice cream. Highly recommended if you are looking for something high quality and more than the touristy norm!

Amazing sardine starter, light as air fried fish main. Great place to linger over a long dinner.
