Eating out around Burano and Venice

We are aware that today it is more and more difficult to find places to eat like a local in tourist areas. And as in all cities where tourism is the main source of income, even in Venice is easy to find places where the quality of the food leaves something to be desired, or in restaurants where the value for money is bad.

We therefore propose a simple guide on the best eateries in Venice, divided by typology.
Not all the places to eat that we suggest are cheap, but they are certainly of high quality and also frequented by the Venetians and the islanders.

We prefer those restaurants in Burano, Venice and the islands who care about the Venetian cuisine, or those who serve a real italian pizza and have a "pizzaiolo" (pizza maker) who still know how to make a pizza as it should be: not frozen or containing ingredients harmful to health.

What makes the value of our guide on "where to eat in Venice, Burano, Murano, Torcello and around" is the fact that doesn't receive any funding from restaurateurs published in these pages and it doesn't rely on the judgment or reviews by people with a dubious or false identity.

Departing from Venice, can be complicated for a tourist reaching Murano, Burano and Torcello by public transport, so we thought about comfortable tours of the islands which depart from the Santa Lucia train station in Venice, from Piazza San Marco and, in summer, also from Punta Sabbioni, the end of the Cavallino-Treporti coastline.

A novelty are also the tour of Burano, Murano and Venice starting from Punta Sabbioni and the daily excursion to Venice and its islands starting from Jesolo Lido.
