one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime
neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side
streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals

Description
The Ristorante da Bruno is located in a peaceful corner of Venice, called Calle Paradiso. It is about 300 meters from Piazza San Marco and 400 from the Rialto Bridge. The restaurant is open daily for lunch and dinner and is the perfect place to stop after a day spent in the lovely Venice's alleys and discover the authentic flavor of this land. Da Bruno you will find traditional dishes, but also a fine selection of Mediterranean food, with a menu of meat and fish. Our staff, day after day, works hard in order to satisfy the palate of a group of clients that is increasing more and more: that is why you can opt for the a la carte menu or the tourist one, depending on your needs. When you come inside this lovely little world, you will be overwhelmed by the warm and cozy atmosphere that characterizes the restaurant. Let yourself be pampered by our team of professionals, who is looking forward to offer you the best of our tradition and leave you exquisitely speechless.
