Vini da Gigio
This trattoria specializes in fish dishes, but the menu also offers Meat and Game. It has a typically cosy ambience, and the friendly proprietors offer a warm welcome to their customers. No fewer than four set menus (EUR47-57) are available, three specializing in seafood. Antipasti, such as Gamberetti Con Polenta (Shrimp with Polenta) give way to Risotto first courses, main courses of Fried or Oven Baked Fish and a Semifreddo (frozen dessert).
This place is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The atmosphere is wonderful, the service is excellant, and everything was expensive, but definately worth it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I would love to go back to this place every day for the rest of my life!!!!!!!!!!
I ate at Vini da Gigio last August 2006. Having heard such great things, I expected a lot, and was disappointed. The food was good, not exceptional, certainly no better than some of the seafood pasta dishes I've had at less well-known trattoria in Venice for far less. If you want to spend more on the name, and get a good meal, then you'll like it, other wise not.

After spending three times as much at the Osteria Da Fiore for much less food, we tried this gem one of the several nights in Venice by ordering four separate entrees. With a choice of both fish amd meat menus and great (but cheap) wine, it was a place I could eat 5 nights in a row and never run out of top notch food and service.
We got married on the 8th of April in Venice and decided to have our celebration lunch at Vini Da Gigio. The staff could not have been more helpful and even recomended a bakery for an beautiful Italian wedding cake. Everyone in the party commented on the wonderful food. The service was also fantastic and didn't rush us out when lunch was over. The restuarant completed a wonderful and memorable day.
Historic Roman pizzeria which, for over 40 years, has stood out because of its 'family feel' and for its wide
variety of pizzas. Sometimes you may have to queue for a short while, but be patient, the service is ...
