Ancient Ostaria Ruga Rialto

Traditional cuisine in the tavern

The traditional cuisine in the tavern The Antica Ostaria Ruga Rialto is one of Venice’s historic locales, listed as a “Regional Historical Locale” and just a stone’s throw from the Rialto Bridge. It is one of the most frequented spots by Venetians. The goal of the Ruga Rialto is to serve its customers authentic traditional dishes in a simple and informal setting, as you would find in a typical Venetian home.

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.
