Tel: 39 041 528 7719's insider take:

The Giudecca is a strange island, with a jolly resident community of tough old boat builders and dreadlocked types seemingly untouched by the tourism of Venice proper (it's actually just a quick vaporetto ride away). Like any small Italian community, this one has its favorite bars, where residents banter over morning coffee or evening aperitivi. Alla Palanca would be just that—a lively neighborhood bar—except for the fact that it happens to serve one of the best lunches around. At midday, the canal-side tables fill with diners enjoying simple, traditional dishes like squid-ink risotto, spaghetti with mixed seafood, and whatever fresh fish is being thrown on the grill that day. It's good home cooking, at prices that are difficult to beat anywhere else in Venice.

Open Mondays through Saturdays noon to 2:30 pm and 7 to 9 pm.
