Near the former slaughter-house there were the Venetian rowers who were on the point of leaving. The name of this place (it means oarsmen) keeps the fascination of this world alive which is also reflected in the strategic positioning of the osteria, on the sea that separates Venice from firm ground, in the typical maritime setting defined by the dark wood of the tables and walls. Every day the menu changes and is adapted to the mixture of clients who frequent the place: at midday a fixed menu for the workers, in the evening (in winter only at the weekend and from March to October full-time) typical Venetian dishes. Let's try to give some explanation even if the recommended dishes cannot be found because they are seasonal. Unforgettable the schie con polenta (fish with polenta) absolutely white, the folpetti alla torcellana and large Greek sardines, that according to an old recipe of Serenissima (The Republic of Venice) are fresh anchovies cooked in vinegar without being fried. An authentic speciality is the tagliolini neri con cozze (black pasta with mussels), fresh tomatoes with basil. In winter do not miss out on the branzino al cartoccio: a packet of pasta, bread, with black olives inside, bay leaves and spices. Instead, the frittura (fried fish) is exclusively prepared with a special olive oil making it crunchy and delicious. Spaghetti alla busara (spaghetti with Dublin Bay prawn), bigoli in salsa (wholewheat spaghetti in an anchovy sauce), tortelli di zucca con scampi freschi e fiori di zucca (pumpkin tortelli with fresh Dublin Bay prawns and pumpkin flowers) or again lasagne with asparagus and Dublin Bay prawns are starters really worth of!
When in season pasta dishes are served with a sauce based on castraure (artichokes).
