This is perhaps the oldest café in the world, dating back to 1720, where countless influential Europeans sat at the tables. I was lucky enough to visit during Carnival and, although a bit pricey, it is worth it to feel transported back in time to the Golden Age of the 'Serenissima'. We went as the 'canons' dictated, I.e. with our 'Venetian' costumes on, and could not count the number of pictures we took. A unique experience. Recommended 100%
Highly recommended for many reasons. You can taste wines, and have some delicious grilled vegetable sandwiches for only 20 € for two people. The staff are charming and friendly. The place is small, but very cozy, and has air conditioning, which is much appreciated.
In the Rialto market-square, this is a place to eat standing in the street. It serves excellent tapas, along with a varied wine list at very good prices, taking into account how expensive it is to eat in Venice. It is a very good place to stop by and rest and warm up a bit with some wine, especially in winter. Mmmmmmm!
It's a kind of bar-restaurant, pretty unromantic as it is in an alley near some loading docks. There's a small terrace and they serve menus which are very well-priced for Venice, although the drinks are expensive, like everywhere. But the highlight of this wonderful place are the large selection of chocolates you can try: white chocolate with hazelnut or almonds, black chocolate, and many more. It really worth sitting even just a little while to try one of their candies!
The bakery is located on Scaleter St., an area where there were once tradiitonal Venetian bakers. This is the last of the traditional local bakeries. All the pastries are handmade in a small kitchen located behind the counter and they're delicious. You can enjoy delicious Venetian sweets like zaleti, Fugasse, il doge bread, San Martins (you eat them during the San Martino), and the traditional Carnival candies (fritoe and crostoli of all varieties). The bakery also has a lounge with tables to sit and try all these delicacies. The staff is very friendly and helpful in recommending things to try.
Great spot in the ghetto of Venice. The neighborhood and the restaurant are both must-sees. Simple, affordable, tasty and good service. They servce typical Israeli wine and beer. It's another Venice you should see, aside from the bustles of the historic district.
With excellent food and service, the Bistrot de Venise is perfect for a romantic rendezvous. It's not the cheapest place to dine, but worth it. We went in white truffle season and ate them with a carpaccio. I have no words to describe the tiramisu. Everything was wonderful. Dinner for two was about €150.00.
[Poi = 94685] Florian [/ poi] or Quadri? It's a dilemma you have when you want to grab a coffee in the Piazza San Marco. Luckily, 2 nights after we finished our tour of Venice, we ended up in this square, so I could try both cafes. Which is better? Everyone has different tastes, but for the view, I prefer Quadri. Located under the arches of the Procuradurías Viejas, this beautiful cafe opened its doors in 1775 and was run by Giorgio Quadri. During part of the year (at least until mid-October) it has a beautiful terrace in the piazza, which is worth checking out at night, listening to the wonderful orchestra playing the classics. You can have a cocktail For almost the same price as a coffee .
This was recommended by our hotel clerk, and it was just a few steps away from the hotel. We had to reserve a table. The fish is particularly good - raw, or breaded and fried. They also offer pasta and Viennese escalope, as you'll find in most restaurants. Professional, welcoming service. The price per person is 30-35 euros with local wine.
This restaurant chain has 3 places in Venice. There's one in the Estrada Nuova near the train station. The food very good and very well-priced all things considered. Near the ferry terminal, truth is there isn't another highly recommended place to eat. Recommended 100% 1.) Zattere Zone, Dorsoduro 1414 2.) San Giacomo dall'orio Area, Santa Croce 1552 / A 3.) Santa Lucia Cannaregio 158 / A
This trattoria is a bit difficult to find as it is located on a small street, but it's worth the search. It is a pizzeria where the food is all made to traditional recipes. The pizzas are very tasty, and I recommend trying the sardines in sauce, and especially the "bigoli", a type of pasta similar to spaghetti. At the weekend, book in advance or arrive early, as it gets very busy.
Trattoria Storica serves up totally authentic and homemade Venetian food at a great price, something nearly impossible to find in most Venetian restaurants. The dishes are hearty and delicious, and the 12-euro menu (excluding drinks) is wonderful. In a city as expensive as Venice, it's worth seeking out!
Situated in the Cannaregio, near the church of the miracle, it is a good place to rest your feet and try vinillos with cichetti or as we call it in Spain, tapas. The place is frequented by locals (besides tourists), so the atmosphere is very familiar. The owners, ve run the place are very friendly. The prices are a little high much like a lot of places in Venice.
If you want to eat the best pizza in Venice, go to Le Campane between San Marco and the Rialto Bridge. The perfectly blended mozzarella and tomato sauce helped me discover what real pizza is all about. The prices are great and I have not found another pizzeria nearly as good in all of Venice.
Typical Venitian bar, where you can sample a wide variety of good Cicchetti (Italian tapas). The locals take the snacks standing at the bar, like in Spain, but in the dining room there are also tables for those ve prefer to eat sitting down. The price of drinks is pretty good.
