We didn’t want a sandwich from one of the thousands in the streets of Venice. We wanted a ‘real’ ‘historic’ Venetian bistro. Armed with a few notes from friends about trattorias with pots hanging from the roof, we weaved our way through the Rialto area, many back lanes, deserted buildings and some dubious neighbourhoods, to find Trattoria Ca’ d’oro – it’s been in the same family since it opened its doors in 1891.

Yes, and in common with many trattoria, there were pots hanging from the roof.

The family were friendly, service was prompt and the Ca’ door is famous for having the ‘best meatballs in Venice’. We tred them as a starter – they are more baby balls than large meat balls and they were delicious.

However, we plumped for the pasta as a main course and the restaurant lived up to its reputation. Very tasty, affordable (by Venetian standards), loads of bread, and above all a fun experience.
