Busa All Torre is ideally located near the campanile on Murano, on the main drag of glass shops. The mixed fried seafood dish is delightful. Our meal was accompanied with an espresso and a salad.
Italian-speakers even get better treats. An imposing bearded man in an apron comes out and describes the daily specials. Perhaps this is the Torre (Bull) of which the name speaks? He is the picture of the rotund and jolly chef.
The waitstaff here is very pleasant, and they made us feel at home even with our limited Italian. As always in Italy, my pleasantries and ordering vocab words were acknowledged rather than ridiculed. When I had to switch to English, they took that in stride as well.
It is worth noting that Busa Alla Torre, like all the restaurants on Murano, is only open for lunch.
