Lunch at Osteria Enoteca San Marco


After the museum, I was ready for lunch. I chose Osteria Enoteca San Marco, a small and stylish restaurant a few blocks from Piazza San Marco.

Nice, varied selection of bread.

The Scandinavian couple at the next table were being served this dish as I took my seat. I asked them what it was, and they told me it was Tagliatelle with Duck Ragu. By the time I was ready to order, they’d tasted enough to recommend the dish.

I liked it. The duck had been cut into pea-sized nuggets, and, as I often found to be the case in Venice, the portion was on the small side as well. Good starter.

My main was this nicely-plated serving of grilled squid and marinated raw shrimp, with lime and ginger.
