If you're vegetarian—or just tired of Venice's fishy menus—La Zucca ("the Pumpkin") is the place to go. Although there are some meat dishes on the menu (pork with ginger and pilau, roast duck with apple and Calvados), what's really special about this place near the Rialto Bridge is its inventive way with vegetables. Tender pumpkin flan is served with a dollop of fresh ricotta cheese, as is the warm pumpkin quiche; pasta dishes are made with radicchio and eggplant instead of mussels and prawns. The wood-paneled dining space is warm, and bench seating makes for a communal atmosphere, as does the slightly crunchy crowd that frequents the place. Lone women travelers are made to feel particularly welcome. The few canal-side tables are picturesque; you can watch other diners arriving at the back entrance by boat.

Open Mondays through Saturdays 12:30 to 2:30 pm and 7 to 10:30 pm.
