Osteria Giorgione Da Masa

$$$$

There is very little to eat in Venice that is not Venetian. A worthwhile exception is this small spot in Cannaregio that uses all the great local seafood and makes creative Japanese food that isn’t gimmicky, like the sarde e saor that comes with the addition of daikon radish and soy sauce. Order the Variazione di Cicchetti dello chef and enjoy more than a dozen tiny dishes like fermented and pickled vegetables topped with katsuobushi and transparent slices of raw fish and seafood. There are handmade gyoza stuffed with ground pork and bowls of ramen with jammy eggs if you want something besides seafood, and they also have a great natural wine list and a bunch of Japanese craft beers.
