Trattoria Da Romano
Burano is definitely the most popular Venetian island, with its rainbow of houses and photogenic fishing boats. To avoid the crowds, do your island hopping at the end of the day and take a late afternoon vaporetto ride and a sunset stroll. You can probably even fit in a spritz somewhere before your dinner reservation at Trattoria da Romano. While you can find a ton of excellent seafood here, ranging from clams, mussels, and shrimp, the signature dish here is the risotto which is served tableside and made with a tiny fish found in the lagoon called go. Don’t linger too long in the enormous dining room looking at the impressive art collection that features books filled with sketches by Joan Miró, Matisse, and Giorgio de Chirico: the last vaporetto back to Venice is just before midnight.
