The Scroccaro family has run la “Trattoria da Ignazio” since 1951. The restaurant is situated in a narrow street in Venice, between the Basílica de los Frailes and la Casa de Goldoni, and has its own garden. We recommend the fish and rice specialities. Other dishes worth trying are noodles with crab from the lagoon, crayfish with artichokes or asparagus, polenta, fried fish, sea bass and baked turbot. Delicious meat specialities also figure on the menu; the wine cellar has an excellent selection of national wines.
