The cuisine of the lagoon

Jesolo is a very small town located few steps from Venice by boat and it offers a good location for many tourist who wants to add to their visit to city on the lagoon some time on the beach. For this reason the place is full of hotels, restaurants and services dedicated to the visitors, active manily during summer time. It is possible to eat almost everything, especially pizza and fish, the leitmotiv of many of the local restaurants, but there are also some elegant places where to taste high quality food.

The food is a need for our body, but it is also a pleasure, that is why I generally search for a restaurant where to taste something typical and special, served by a professional and kind staff and consumed in a smart and original setting. Otherwise I can just cook some pasta at home and that is it. Travelling for me it is always the chance to discover the culture in a deep way and cuisine is of course a part of it.

In Italy the food is quite popular, but there are not only pasta and pizza. In Jesolo, on the Venice lagoon, in town center few steps from the sea, there is a place that reminds a French bistrot with brick walls and lovely objects disseminated as to underline the elegance of the dining room. The modern furniture well spread around the restaurant gives a precise style.

The menu offers dishes coming from the local traditional cuisine proposed with great quality ingredeinds and accompained by homemade bread. There are cold and hot appetizers and different recipes for the first and the main courses. Also the list of the desserts leaves the embarassment of choice. Also the wine cellar is well stocked with a big selection of wines.

If you like fresh fish this restaurant is highly recommended, especially because it is not too elaborated. Do you want to know the name of the place? It is called Ristorante da Omar and you find it in Via Dante Alighieri 21, in Lido di Jesolo, it is in the main street of the center. It is a good choice also for the tourists who are searching something different from the most famous Italian recipes.

      1. Oh that is great. I have been in very past, when I was a child, in Colombia and Venezuela, so I am curious to know more how it became. I visited San Andres and there was just a fishermen village with a guest house, but it was a bit less then 30 years ago…

      2. It is my country, so it is obvious that I love it, but I think the life is quite stressful in Italy, I am dreaming some quiet paradise… by the way, where did you live?

      4. But at least your language is useful, thanks to English you can go around the world and talk with many people, if you only know Italian you can go to Italy, Vatican, San Marino and the Italian part of Switzerland… πŸ˜€
