Ancient Ostaria Ruga Rialto
Traditional cuisine in the tavern
Here, good wine, or rather a good “ombra” (small glass of wine), is always accompanied by the famous “cicchetti”, tasty meatballs, croquettes, or a good mixed plate of fried fish and potatoes, and of course traditional Venetian dishes. Additionally, it’s possible to eat raw fish by reservation.
The Osteria Ruga Rialto is also the ideal place for dinners, birthdays, graduation parties, or any moment when you want to experience the true Venice.
