Tel: 39 041 720 744's insider take:

Set far from the tourist hordes, in the north of the city, this small, relaxed, family-run bacaro is a favorite among locals. The menu of simply yet elegantly prepared primi includes a wonderful bigoli in salsa (fat spaghetti in anchovy sauce) and an aromatic tagliatelle with prawns and zucchini flowers. True to its name (anice stellato means "star anise"), the restaurant does interesting things with spices, too: Giant sardines are cooked with lemon and ginger, and baked salmon comes with potatoes tossed with a mix of pungent herbs. Weather permitting, grab a table on the lovely Fondamenta della Sensa and watch the boats drift by.

Open Wednesdays through Sundays 12:15 to 2 pm and 7:30 to 10 pm.
