Restaurant la Colombina

Restaurant la Colombina

The restaurant La Colombina in Venice is characterized by a kitchen between tradition and innovation.

If, during your vacation in Venice, you want to have the opportunity to sample a modern and contemporary kitchen but with an eye on tradition and at a very reasonable price, we recommend the restaurant La Colombina in Strada Nuova, in a lively area of the city, which still retains the popular atmosphere, just a few steps from the Station and from Rialto. The dishes are all devoted to the respect of the Venetian tradition but with a focus on innovation and contamination from other regions: as the scallops roasted with the scents of Sicily or the shrimp scampi and mushrooms (porcini) risotto or Cuttlefish in black on biological polenta. Try the sea bass fillet wrapped in zucchini and creamed shellfish or the tuna and swordfish tartare on Parmantier of potatoes and brumoise of vegetables, both a real pleasure for the palate. The wine selection is even better. For those who prefer to remain on the classics we suggest to choose between the traditional Venetian Cicchetti, like sardines in sauce or salt cod, which can be admired in all their colourful variety, on the counter. Alessandro Bet, who runs the place and is responsible of the preparation of the delicious dishes, has documented himself about the Venetian food and found in the book by Carla Coco “Venice in the kitchen”, the kitchen cupboard, in use since ancient times: small appetizers and delicacies always ready for any eventuality. At the restaurant la Colombina, also in the choice of ingredients a lot of attention is paid to products at km 0 and for those who suffer from food allergies. Chef Alessandro is a son of art, and carries on a long family tradition characterized by attention to the good food and the culinary arts. After a degree in Communication Sciences in Trieste with a thesis in collaboration with Cipriani and Gualtiero Marchesi entitled "Aesthetics of the luxury market in wine and food", chooses Venice and takes the reins, along with mom Adriana, the Restaurant la Colombina, where in the past have worked chef of a certain caliber, as Alberto Modolo, the legendary chef Jacques Custeau on Calipso and on Love boat.   Alessandro and Adriana look after everything in detail, starting from the atmosphere of the room, refined but warm and informal. The restaurant is located in an easily accessible area from both the Rialto Bridge and from Piazzale Roma, but at the same time is in a secluded location, away from the crowds of tourists.   One of the characteristics that immediately jumps to the eye, inside the restaurant La Colombina, is the rich library of cookbooks, you can refer to while you taste the many culinary delights that will offer you Alessandro.
