Neighborhood: Dorsoduro
Cuisine: Italian

This small trattoria is located on a side street within a five-minute walk from the Museo dell'Accademia. A family owns and manages the restaurant whose signature is the friendly atmosphere and the traditional homemade food based on seasonal and local products. Ai Cugnai serves a variety of seafood and fish, as well as other select choices such as Venetian-style liver, pasta with meat sauce and grilled vegetables. The wine list features mostly bottles from the Veneto region, and the prices are reasonable. The menu changes quite often, and they always host a variety of freshly-made pasta and meat dishes too. - Maria Frullini

I ordered a pasta with scallops recommended by the waiter -- I was served pasta with cut up shrimp and ONE piece of a cut scallop. Bread was provided to tables of locals, but not to us... dessert wine served with biscuits to locals, just a glass for us. Even getting the bill to pay took an extremely long time. I would suggest dining elsewhere....   Read More
