1. Great place to grab dessert. The tiramisu is the best I have ever had. I say that with confidence.

2. Be sure to order a jug or two of wine. I Still have dreams about the home made red.

3. Menu is primarily seafood. This is a great spot to get away from the crowds and experience the real charm of Venice. Also, the guy who owns the place is a gem.

Our waiter (also the owner) spoke the most minimal amount of English. Which was great. It was nice to meet someone in the almost amusement park-ish Venice who was entirely authentic. His menu was scribbled on a piece of paper and quite difficult to interpret. So I asked him to bring me what he would like to eat for dinner.

I received a cold meat platter as an appetizer, two home made pitchers of red wine (I would bottle it and sell it for millions if I could only convince him), gnocchi in tomato sauce, and finished it off with two helpings of tiramisu. It was only a couple of seconds between the time that he placed it in front of me and when I inhaled the very last crumb, so I figured I should order one more piece.

A bit more expensive (about 30 euros each), and I could care less. I walked by the next day and the menu was completely different. I left feeling as if I was the last person who would ever eat that specific combination of food at Osteria Alla Frasca, but I hope not. It would be a waste for me to be the only one.

Not an easy place to find, I literally had to squeeze through an alley no more than a foot and half wide until I popped out in to the middle of a remote piazza where this spot is located. All I can say is that it Osteria Alla Frasca will likely be the most enjoyable dining experience I will have ever had. If that isn’t enough to convince you to try it, then I should give up writing altogether.

Note: Very difficult to find a google map of this specific location, but in the above map, this restaurant is point “B”
