Il Paradiso Perduto
There’s a lot to love about Il Paradiso Perduto: the big space, the occasional live music, and the generous portions. Order a plate of cicchetti inside and then find a spot to sit or stand next to the canal, or you can book a table and stay for a sit-down meal. Look for the pasta machine in the window cranking out fresh bigoli, which they use in a dish that comes with so much seafood (prawns, scallops, mussels), you can hardly see the pasta. The large fried seafood plate hits all of the right crispy and salty notes, and is perfect if you need a bigger dish to share.
