Ai Tre Garofani (VE) — Veneto Secrets

With a magnificent ancient grapevine embracing the facade and a welcoming country-chic atmosphere, Ai Tre Garofani is a real treat outside the common routes. Born from a former bacaro in Asseggiano, a few kilometers from Venice, for over 40 years this restaurant has been renowned for a passionate family-run management which has made it an unmissable address for fish lovers.

Run by Renzo, who’s able to create fanciful dishes revisiting tradition with creativity, Ai Tre Garofani has fully earned its annual presence in the Michelin Guide. The interior décor has been created by the owners themselves by choosing objects and fabrics capable of giving a distinctive personality to each room, mixing shabby-chic furniture with country-style objects.

The super-fresh fish is personally chosen by Renzo at the local fish markets in order to give his customers the best quality raw materials. Do not miss the risotto with go, a recipe typical of the Venetian island of Burano prepared using delicate and tasty lagoon fishes. The choice of desserts is also excellent, strictly homemade, as well as the wine list that can satisfy all needs.

Ai Tre Garofani is indeed the perfect place either for a special romantic occasion or for a dinner among friends, cuddled by a family atmosphere that can really win your heart over.

The Secret

The déhor, now just fabulous for a dinner under the fifty-year-old vine, was born almost by chance from the natural evolution of the plant, originally used as a shelter for the bikes of local customers who stopped at the bacaro to drink “the last goto” (the last drink) before returning at home.
