Osteria La Zucca restaurant is located within Venice, Italy’s San Croce sestiere, at Calle dello Spezier, 1762.
The compact-sized osteria (35 seats inside & 12 outside during the summer months), has a great location, close to the San Giacomo square, near a romantic, picturesque bridge.
Although La Zucca isn’t a vegetarian restaurant, the menu features a variety of vegetarian dishes made with natural, fresh ingredients.
La Zucca’s specialties are pumpkin flan, potatoes cake, and a vegetarian course with rice or couscous.
Besides meat courses, such as rabbit with white wine or lamb with spices, you can enjoy homemade cakes such as the pears cake with ginger or the spices tart with red wine and raspberry.
The restaurant’s atmosphere is both welcoming and modern, with highlights such as oak coating on the walls and a little open kitchen, so you can witness the chef working on the meals.
One of the nice restaurant details is the door to the canal, allowing customers to enter inside directly from a boat.
