Sounds like “Opa!” right? But it’s the name of a restaurant. Check out this gem in the Campo di Gheto Novo. I haven’t eaten a meal there, only had drinks and snacks, but I wanted to share it today for the artwork. You’ll have to let me know how the food is.
Tony Green painted these panels that frame the door to the restaurant. He’s an American artist and musician, well-known in New Orleans for his many murals and poster art. In Venice, he shows his work around local venues, and he’s often to be heard playing with his band in a number of restaurants, such as Remer and Da Mario. Watch for signs that Gypsy Jazz is playing and you’ll be in for a treat. Tony actually lives in the Ghetto, so he gets to stroll by his own artwork daily.
