About us

Osteria Antico Dolo

Antico Dolo was born in 1989 from a Bruno Ruffini’s idea, a native Venetian that after more than thirty years working for a catering business, decided to buy this hystorical restaurant in the centre of Venice, close to Rialto bridge.
L'”Antico Dolo” is placed in Ruga Vecchia San Giovanni (known better as “Ruga Rialto”) in the area of the fish and fruit and vegetable market, where all the benches are full of fresh foodstuffs products.
