During my last visit to Venice I was lucky to discover “Osteria al Garanghelo” http://www.garanghelo.com/ita-index.htm and enjoyed eating and drinking there. The Osteria is located in the area of Castello, very near the Arsenale, on via Garibaldi.
In spite of the hords of tourists in Venice, the Osteria was also frequented by the locals, which right from the beginning was a very good sign. The sea breeze reaches the Osteria and you can enjoy your lunch or dinner al fresco.
One of the two brothers – owners is Simone, who suggested the dishes that follow.
This is a mixed dish of boiled folpetti (little octopi) and cuttlefish eggs. Delicious! But wait until you see the detail that follows.
