We've been visiting the Ponte del Diavolo over a period of nearly ten years and have never been disappointed. It's in a beautiful setting, although this time we were indoors for the first time, having previously visited during the summer months. There's a warm welcome, and consistently good service. The menu is quite extensive, with a wide variety of interesting and innovative dishes involving a range of different meats and fishes. I had octopus in a thick spicy sauce with polenta this time, followed by fritto misto with tempura vegetables. My wife had scallops followed by turbot, both beautifully cooked and presented. Desserts are quite spectacular too, and there's an excellent wine list. Lunch isn't cheap, but we reckon it's very good value and a very good reason for travelling to Torcello!

Three of us lunched at the Osteria and it was simply the best meal ( by far ) that we had in Venice. Delightful, quiet surroundings. Unfortunately, the weather did not favour sitting out in the extensive, manicured gardens, but we were comfortable enough in the fresh air but under cover. Helpful, friendly service. We started with crab and scallops and moved onto fritto misto and poached turbot. All beautifully cooked and presented.
It is much easier to get to Torcello from the Venetian main island now that the no 12 Vaporetto calls direct, and regularly. It is a real chance to break away from the crowds and tourist traps and day trippers. It is well worth the journey alone, and that is before looking at the Byzantine mosaics in the church which are a perfect way to build up the appetite for a long relaxing lunch.

Our last meal in Venice and definitely the best. Just along the canal from the better known Cipriani this restaurant was a close second. Service was excellent and the food well cooked and well presented. Not a cheap lunch but worth the money. Our scallops were perfectly cooked and flavoured, a soufflé of cauliflower and telegio was equally good. Risotto and a dessert of figs finished the perfect meal. Worth a trip to the island!

We have been going here for more that 10 years. It has grown in that time and we have watched this with interest. The food is superb, the staff very professional and friendly and the location unbeatable.
