Avogaria is one of the most modern and fashionable restaurants of Venice. The food and the architecture and décor are very contemporary. The décor of the dining room and the garden is simple yet very elegant. The predominant cuisine here is Pugliese, a region in the south of Italy. Most in demand from among the primi include orecchiette (small, round pasta) with turnip tops, and zucchini involtini (roll-ups) made with fresh stracciatella cheese. Pugliese cuisine also lays great emphasis on fresh seafood.
