Pizzeria Trattoria Piave
This family-run trattoria is perched on the far side of the River Bacchiglione and owes its rustic atmosphere to the copper pots and old paintings on the walls. The padrona, or boss, is a lively old Italian woman who usually takes charge of the orders and has a lot to say. There is a wide choice of food from pizzas to pasta and steaks, but the delicious set menu is recommended. It never varies much, which is tiresome if you’re a regular customer but ideal on a one-off visit as the great taste is testament to the cook’s practiced hand. The menu usually consists of wine, a pasta dish such as tortellacci (squares stuffed with ricotta and spinach) or gramigna (short tubes of pasta with a sausage sauce) and a pudding of tiramisu. All the pasta is homemade and the perfect level of al dente.
