Last fall I had a small group of RHR's that arranged to have dinner at Ostaria al Vecio Pozzo. I highly recommend this restaurant. Tablecloths but not formal at all. Lots of locals. Prices very reasonable for Venice. They had everything from great pizza to succulent fresh seafood, pasta, and beef. The seafood risotto was outtanding. I definitely want to go back this time.Sounds yummy! I looked at the web site but alas, no menu (or prices)
Sounds yummy! I looked at the web site but alas, no menu (or prices)Bev, we went to a few nice restaurants very close to the hotel. I can't remember what the names were but the staff directed us to them. They are so wonderful that all you have to do is ask. They have very good recommendations for just about anything you want.
Perhaps other can chime in with their reccommendations for other reasonably (for Venice)
would love to hear about those close to the Locanda Orseolo!
Hi Ann,You're right, Jan. The Royal cruise will be the 5th transatlantic from Venice we've done and you are the first ones I can remember who have been to the Osteria Santa Marina besides us. We'll have to check out the Il Ridotto too. The first time we went to Il Barababao we sat at a table next to an Italian wedding party. We offered to take some photos of the group so they could all be in the pictures. before we knew it, we were part of the wedding party with toasts and hugs! It was great fun!
Amazing how we have the same tastes in hotels & restaurants!!! We are at the same hotel and our top restaurants are Il Ridotto, Il Barababao & Osteria Santa Marina. Perhaps we can get together for a pre cruising dinner!
Last October we had dinner at a place called La Rosa Rossa. Fantastic food and it didn't break the bank. Many great reviews on Trip Advisor.....
The most inexpensive restuarants are the ones away from the St. Marks and Rialto area. The best ones we stumbled upon sometimes while we were lost. LOL
Over the years, I have found that the restaurants the hotels send you to are the touristy ones and the best ones are the ones the locals go to.
They have great pizza there, too.Dorothy;
Sorry but am a bit confused. This thread is about Restaurants in Veince. How did it go from that to telephone???Ditto, Bev! Perhaps my idea of topic specific threads was a mistake, especially if people don't stay on the topic.
Not to sound grumpy but if you wish to chat about phones etc, please start your own thread. Many of us are really interested in the various restaurants reccommended in Venice.(Most are looking for reasonably priced and away from the usual tourist areas)
