It's easy to get ripped off in Venice but if you know where to look there are a lot of amazing restaurants just around the corner. That's the beauty of a compact city like Venice.
Just on the side of Rialto Bridge is this pretty little osteria with tons of outdoor seating. This Octopus dish was one of the highlights. Grilled to a perfect crispness and accompanied by the pink salt and peppercorns this will please anyone looking for something other than pasta!
