La Perla ai Bisatei in Murano – Venice
23 septembre 2015 § 5 Commentaires
Finding an authentic restaurant is the biggest challenge when you are visiting Venice and its surroundings. By « authentic » I mean a place without overpriced dishes and aimed only for hungry tourists.
If you have time to visit Murano, try to have lunch at La Perla Ai Bisatei. Located on the residential part of the island, you will eat in a family run osteria among glass blowers and locals.
On the menu, typical italian dishes such as Spaghetti alle vongole (spaghetti with clams), seafood plate and if available an excellent risotto. Despite the absence of any particular decor, I appreciated eating comfort food in a family run osteria after over indulging myself with gelati.
Where? Campo San Bernado 1, Murano
Can I ask you where did you sleep in Venise?
Thanks a lot,

Hey Lorea! We were in Mestre at my mom’s friend. It is only 10mn by train from Venice and definitely more budget friendly.
You’re lucky 😃
I was very disappointed by Venice. Was there years ago in February, with few tourists, but the hotel was old and shabby, the food was terrible and expensive, and the people made us feel very much the intruders… and I was COLD, so cold. The city itself is beautiful and so very different to anywhere else I’ve been, but I never felt the urge to go back. Now Pisa is another story. I expected tourists galore and found a beautiful little town with heart and charm.
I will one day go back to Venice… I just don’t know when. I’ll have to check out your finds.
We were lucky because the weather was really nice and we did not stay in Venice but in Mestre, far from the hustle and bustle. I guess in winter Venice must look very dull..! Also, it is definitely not a foodie destination but there are still authentic restaurants and gelaterias held by Venetians with friendly service. Have you been to Murano and Burano islands as well?
