Two brothers, one vocation for cuisine!

25 05 2011

Usually, when two brothers do the same job, one does it better then the other.

This is not the case of the two brothers who run the “Barababao” and “Al Profeta” restaurants in Venice, where you can enjoy very good food and a nice location.

I started attending these places in the same period without knowing they were managed by two brothers. I happened in the first one because it is placed very near to my guest house ( and in the second one because I was suggested to go by one of the young guys who work with me. I discovered the relationship only after a while, when I saw the same visit card with both names and reference data.

At Barababao the kitchen offers mainly fish, while at Al Profeta you can also have pizza and meat.

Both places feature a nice atmosphere, even if at Barababao some disquieting devil images hung on the walls watch you while eating. I rather appreciate the black-and-white pictures of past movie stars which stuff the walls at Al Profeta. Al Profeta also has a summer garden.

I tasted different dishes in both places so far and I’ dare to say that at Barababao you cannot miss the fried fish mix (prawns and squids) and the fillet cooked with Porto wine at Al Profeta. Try them, you won’t be disappointed!
