Ciao Chowhounds! I found the PERFECT real deal Italian restaruant in Venice Italy - capitol of rip off tourist joints. ANTICA SACRESTIA is a VERY old restaurant under new management located near St. Marks. The owner, Pino, makes you feel as if you are a 'regular'. The food on the extensive menu is AMAZING - as good as it gets with astounding pasta, real deal pizza and a table of appetizers that starts the saliva rolling the moment you walk in the door. Not to mention the cozy atmosphere and the wonderful very reasonably priced wine list. We liked it so much we went twice in a two day period and on the second visit he brought us champagne and an appetizer plate on the house. When Pino found out it was my birthday he gave me a beautiful ceramic plate to take home with me. That's amore!
