For my last night in Venice, I wanted something off the main canal. Curious about another one of the front desk’s suggestions, I had him call to make me a reservation at Ristorante San Silvestro.
Browsing the menu, I started with the CAMPARI ORANGE SPRITZ (Campari, orange juice, and sparkling water).
For a first course, I continued with the RAVIOLI RIPIENI DI BRANZINO, PINOLI, BOTTARGA E POMODORO (Ravioli stuffed seabass, pine nuts, botargo and tomato cherries), which was delicious.
The main dish of FILETTO DI TONNO IN CROSTA DI SESAMO E PISTACCHIO (Tuna fillet in sesame crust and pistacchio) was decent.
Truthfully, I felt that it was a bit small for the price. I also felt that it needed more salt and flavoring to really bring out a distinct flavor.
Instead of staying for dessert, I opted to return to my hotel, H10 Palazzo Canova, for a nightcap cocktail on the rooftop lounge.
Overall, for ambiance and quality, dinner at Ristorante San Silvestro was a lovely end to my short stay in Venice.
