C&O Trattoria

C&O Trattoria is great for family-style eating with large groups in an al-fresco seating. If you're looking for more of a date place, I'd suggest C&O Cucina, which is down the street and away from the Venice hustle-bustle. Both places are great... the food is fresh, the waitstaff is accommodating, and best of all -- the garlic knots will win you over after bite one. Check it out!

Garlic Knots drowned in basil/ garlic. 
These little devils are the bane of my existence. So addictive.
