This place was well worth the journey from Venice to Burano. First of all we were welcomed out from the cold earlier than opening time and given a complimentary glass of prosecco. We went with the owner's recommendations and were not disappointed: rissotto, fresh pasta, biggest and tastiest langoustines ever, crabs, calamari. The chefs and waiters clearly know their craft...

We were really looking forwards to the visit to Gatto Nero after reading many fantastic reviews. We were tended to by a very nice waiter and ordered the big tasting plate (35E) as antipasto to share, and then a pasta each. The tasting plate did unfortunately not at all live up to either reputaiton or the very high price, instead... More

My family and I had the most delicious lunch at Al Gatto Nero! I had fabulous spaghetti with clam sauce, while others in our group had incredible risotto and fish. The wine list is excellent. The staff is friendly and lovely, and the service is great. We sat outside and the setting is lovely. Run don't walk! You'll always remember... More

Made reservations in advance and the table was ready, in fact they saved 2 for us so we could choose inside or out. A great start. We chose outside as it was beautiful outside. They delivered a complementary prosecco which we enjoyed while perusing the menu. Bread was delivered and looked beautiful but no olive oil or balsamic so we... More

This is much better than most the touristy restaurants on Burano, but felt like it wasn't worth the hassle and price. They were full so we made reservations for a couple hours later, then waited another half hour after our reservation to be seated. The food was fine, but not really worth the high prices. The waiter seemed frustrated that... More

We came on the recommendation of a family friend, who spoke very highly of this restaurant, and needless to say my family and I were very excited! I, as a seafood aficionado, was so excited about getting to eat fresh seafood in Venice! (Note: We did not make a reservation when we arrived, so it was full. We booked a... More

We keep coming back every time we are in Venice and this has never been disappointing. The food, the service - especially the wonderful Silvio - the atmosphere are outstanding and worth the trip.

No. There are no cats in on the plates or running around in the restaurant. The plates are hand painted with scenes of the colorful houses of Burano. Each one contains a tiny black cat, also painted on. There is a shop on the premises where you can purchase a place setting, if oyu so desire This is a family... More
