This second Venice from owner Alessandro Carollo is a beauty: coldly stylish, undeniably luxurious, and with a menu that reads like a primer of every good idea the Italians ever had. It's expensive, though not murderously so. It's fancy, though jacket and tie are not required. But most important, this restaurant finally offers a fitting frame within which Carollo and exec Christian Delle Fave can work their wonders with Italian cuisine.
