THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Teatro Goldoni Restaurant Review

: In a brightly theatrical setting with harlequin patterns everywhere, enjoy lobster risotto, baby cannelloni stuffed with rabbit, and sautéed sea scallops with a ragù of pancetta and roasted fennel and served with purple potatoes. The lunch and dinner menus change every so often, so your favorites may disappear. However, the “teatro” part of the restaurant’s name hints at what this experience is all about: gather a group of friends for a party then ask for seating in the mezzanine dining area that overlooks the glassed-in kitchen. This gives you a front seat for the kitchen drama. In a hurry during office hours? You can find a lunch bar menu that features such dishes as fried calamari, veal stew, and a grilled salmon salad.
