Aquastanca
Murano Island is best known for its numerous glassmakers, and their respective factories, shops and boutiques. The island is not itself a foodie destination, though there are exceptions, like the charming and exceptionally good restaurant, Aquastanca. Giovanna Arcangeli opened Aquastanca in April 2012. I like it here because you can saddle up to the bar and order a cold, crisp Friuli white wine, and casually graze on small Venetian cichetti or snacks like baccala pate on crostini. Or you can sit down at a table and order a more substantial meal. The chef, Caterina Nason, is Arcangeli's sister-in-law, and her menu offers the sort of typical seafood-based fare one would expect from the Venetian lagoon. If you do drop in for a long, lazy lunch, try their dumplings with scallop and zucchini or their catch of the day, tuna fish with a light zucchini cream.
