In the Venetian dialect, Lovo means a wolf.
Near the Ponte del Lovo Bridge, very close to San Marco Square and even closer to the Rialto Bridge, from 11 to 10:30 pm, Osteria del Lovo can offer you food at any time because they don’t close in the afternoon, as the other places.
How we came across this restaurant and became fans, read below.
See Osteria del Lovo ….
… A nice interior that tells you traditional Venetian cuisine is offered here.
Feel Osteria del Lovo ….
… Great service, fast and polite. But I would like to get into some more details.
When we arrived the first night because of the delay of our flight, we found ourselves at 23:00-23:30 in Venice, at 4 degrees temperature outside, in early February. We were hungry, especially the children and very tired of the trip. Our kind host, Paola, from Residenza Ducato tried to help us make a reservation somewhere, but everywhere it was rejected, even from the establishments that had announced they were closing at 23:30 pm.
As we moved with the luggage to the apartment, we saw that Osteria del Lovo was still open. We left our luggage and returned to the restaurant. But from we were told there that they do not accept visitors so late. Then our Paola asked them to give us takeaway food, and they agreed. We got 4 portions of Lasagna Bolognese and a bottle of Amarone Ripasso. Because our apartment to Residenza Ducato had a well-furnished kitchen, we didn’t miss anything to enjoy perhaps the most delicious lasagna we’ve eaten so far. It was gorgeous, and after all the vicissitudes and our great hunger, combined with this great wine, we had the feeling that we had eaten ambrosia. We decided we would return at all costs to the restaurant

Smell Osteria del Lovo ….
… The cichetti, charcuterie, lasagna all dishes have very appetizing smell;
… The subtle aroma of fish that does not intrude on caviar with a Baccala;
… The aroma of Amarone Ripasso- rich wine, red fruits, marmalade, dried plum.
Amarone Ripasso or as it is called baby Amarone, comes from the Valpolicella wine region, in Veneto, Italy. Amarone is famous wine, in high demand, which can be found at a rather high price, but it is worth tasting. It is made by the method of drying the fruit before putting it to ferment in order to concentrate the aroma and taste of the wine. It is actually made from raisins. In Ripasso is used leftover material from Amarone raisins and young wine is added. The result is a wine with similar characteristics to Amarone, but at a much more affordable price.
Taste Osteria del Lovo ….
… Be sure to try Cichetti. They are so tasty.
Cichetti are small snacks, usually sandwiches with fish, charcuterie or caviar. You pronounce them chiketti.
… Bacala cichetti;
Bacala- this is a salted cod fish and a traditional dish in Venice. Available as a caviar made of it on cichetti, which is very fine and delicious.
… A board with charcuterie- incredibly delicious and wonderful finger food for red wine;
… Any pasta or pizza;
… Panna cotta and tiramisu- we liked it a lot!
I recommend a lot of Osteria del Lovo, because when others close they stay open and you can also take away food at home if you are so late with dinner. But not only because of that- because of good food and great wine at decent prices.
