Two Michelin stars well deserved! This Italian restaurant deserves a positive review. The food is tasty and the atmosphere is enjoyable — it’s perfect for impressing even the most hard-pressed connoisseurs.

Met, the highly starred restaurant in Venice at the Metropole Hotel, sits on the waterfront. Chef Corrado Fasolato is the most recommended person in that industry in Venice. Met is a very nice restaurant, where the cuisine follows tradition, it is full of secrets, mysteries and pleasure.

I ordered a Mille Feuille Of Goose, Foie Gras Smoked And Grilled with basil, pepper and coral coffee sprinkling. The taste is truly unique, a mixture of aroma obliging you to close your eyes after every bite.  Afterwards, I took the big handmade Long Pasta with Chioggia Red Chicory, Blue Dei Berici Cheese, black grapes, raw and cooked lamb.

Believe me it is the most unique pasta you will ever taste in your life. The desert, to end this taste of listening to the sounds of the palate, was a chocolate celebration in its endless variations: the chocolate, food of the gods, fills you with joy and good humor. A dozen of small bites, full of passion and taste, from 60% cocoa to another 100%, from Colombia to Nigeria — it’s simply amazing.

Before the orders came, the restaurant offers you a complementary entree, a Consomme of Lamb in a transparent coffee cup. It comes with a variation of soft bread with white salt from Malta and black salt from Hawaii.  After that, and also before the main dinner, a Baccalaou Of Caviar in a special presentation opens up all your senses. It doesn't stop here, there is even a pre-desert complementary plate:  the CALVADOS and YOGURT CREAM and Mint Sorbet with Lime.The small details that stayed in my mind are the fresh towel at the end, the wonderful and varied cheese trolley and the way the chief waiter tastes personally, cleans the cups and serves the wine while discussing its features.

But most important is the very wide wine selection, they even have a Lebanese selection! I recommend a very nice wine chosen from the hundreds bottles he has: Bio, Punset Barbaresco Campo Quadro 1999.  The experience was great and full of flavor.  NB: I really appreciated the music.
