The atmosphere in the restaurant was incredible as we happened to be there at the same time as a large group of Italian ladies celebrating International Womens' Day. The food was delicious, the waiters attentive and entertaining and all in all it was one of the highlights of our visit to Venice.

Book ahead for a day trip to remember and order the risotto. You won't be disappointed. At first it seemed like an over-expensive touristy restaurant, but it is not... this is the real deal. Excellent seafood, staff and preparation.

We had lunch a Burano. I asked around and this restaurant has the reputation as being the best and they will not let you down. We had the fish soup which was excellent and the fish which was excellent as well. If in Burano again I would come again. Call for a reservation in advanced. You will enjoy.

My wife and I are on a trip to Venice without the kids and decided to eat while in Burrano. We chose this place due to the good reviews and let me tell you this place is a winner in every way!!! The service and food were phenomenal. We could not find a thing to compare in Venice so far........ More

Reasonably priced for the area (meaning not cheap) - food was excellent - very busy - very pleasant staff. Book or be prepared to wait (but then go to the restaurant, and have a walk into Burano)

Enjoyed lunch outside at this restaurant.Were given complimentary prosecco whilst we waited for the menu. Chose grilled shellfish to share as a starter- lovely scallops and razor clams- all very fresh.After that we had spider crab tagliarini.Absolute highlight of the meal.Shared a very fresh homemade ricotta/ lemon tart also very good.The experience was somewhat spoilt by a sharp tongued waiter...

We were recommended to visit the island of Burano to see the coloured houses. So we researched a restaurant for lunch & found Al Gatto Nero, so glad we did. Superb fish, served correctly & no rush to finish, although they are always busy. We sat outside with a view along the canal. Best book though

This is a place you have to come if you visit this island in Venice. The food is really good, and we ordered a wonderful fish, which has been cut well by qualified waiter. Stop by and enjoy!

Nestled among the colorful houses this restaurant is truly a gem. When we were there they only had tables outside but I know they have an inside seating as well. Food so fresh the fisherman, who delivered sat down to have a drink with us. Hands down the best dining experience in Venice and probably all of Italy. Very friendly... More

Being from Malta eating fish is regular for us and honestly Al Gatto Nero was a great experience, loved the food, great location and staff was super friendly. It's not cheap but normal for this type of good food. Would love to visit again and again!

Thank Adrian F
