We visited this restaurant after finding it on trip advisor. It wasn't far from our hotel so we decided to hunt it out. It was full of locals and the waitress told us that the menu is different every day so it is only available in Italian, she explained what everything was and gave us recommendations. We both had the mixed seafood starter which included squid with polenta, sardines with pickled onions, prawns, scallops in garlic butter and others. For main I had pasta Vongole which was delicious and my parter had prawn lasagne. The food and atmosphere were great and the house wine is excellent. I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant over others in Venice.

Visited this restaurant on Saturday night, made a reservation and advised there was live music which turned out to be an excellent trio of piano, bass and drums playing a selection of jazz. A limited menu with a choice of 3/4 starters and main courses, nearly all fish based. The food, service, ambience were all excellent. If you are in this area do not miss this restaurant

My wife and I had our first dinner while visiting Venice at Osteria al Diplomatico and it couldn't have been more perfect. While the exterior is somewhat less-than-inviting, it should not deter you from entering and eating some of the best food in Italy. Once you walk through the front door, you find the restaurant clean, well appointed, and intimately lit, especially at night. The service was fantastic, with at least 3 different employees stopping by to make sure everything was satisfactory, to take away dishes, and to bring us the endless supply of their amazing house white wine. As Americans, we are always sheepish being unable to speak fluent Italian, but the employees of Osteria al Diplomatico were EXTREMELY friendly and were eager to help us understand some of the more traditional and complex Italian dishes. The menu was relatively small and written on a chalkboard and easel, which they would bring around to your table for your viewing. Despite the limited menu, they had a dynamic list of offerings sure to satisfy anyone. My wife ordered the fried fish filet and I ordered spaghetti with clams, both dishes were tastebud-blowing. The spaghetti was perfectly tender, with an outstanding balance of olive oil and herbs. There was a very healthy amount of clams, which were clearly fresh, in both appearance and taste. My wife's fish was also clearly fresh and flaky, with a light breading over a very large filet. Paired with the house white wine, which was some of the best we had on our trip (only 3 euro for a half liter), our food made for the best meal we had on our entire trip. Dinner for two, plus a few jugs a wine will only set you back about 18-30 Euros. If it hadn't been for our long days in Venice proper and long trip backs at night, we would have tried to eat here for dinner every night during our stay.

We had 2 fabulous meals here. The staff headed by Nadir were very helpful, attentive and able to suit our requirements, especially when they were able to leave out unliked ingredients. On out 2nd visit we were greated like old friends.
