With only 10 tables, Trattoria Vini da Arturo is surprisingly lively, and features a friendly and attentive staff. Unlike most restaurants in Venice, this one doesn’t offer seafood, instead focusing on meat and vegetables dishes, providing a nice break from the endless selection of fish. A popular spot for locals, this is the place to go for a true Italian experience.
