Look for the neon sign that says Rosticceria to find this cafe, deli, and lunch counter near the Rialto Bridge. Point to what looks good among the trays of dishes like grilled seafood and octopus salad, along with salads, tramezzini, and our favorite: the mozzarella in carrozza. They make this breaded and deep-fried grilled cheese sandwich with a few anchovies slid into the middle, and it’s perfect if you’re looking for a quick lunch or an early dinner. There are a few tables downstairs with a bigger dining room upstairs, but know they close at 9:30pm and the selection is slim towards the end of the day.
