Best Veneto and Venice Restaurants
Venice restaurants and those in Veneto are often excellent but Venice
is also one of the best places in Italy to eat horrible food at
inflated prices – my guide will ensure you avoid this.
Al Vagon, came close to making our list. A bit unpredictable - sometimes wonderful, sometimes not so much.
Perhaps you have read elsewhere on the site that my family and I (me Maria) have lived in Italy for over ten years.
In that time we have discovered some superb restaurants and anyway I'm Italian and know good food:)
If it isn't as good as my mamma's cooking it's no good!
These restaurants don’t cater for the tourist trade but to locals
and you won’t find many of them in any guide book - except
perhaps in those catering for Italians.
What you will find are excellent restaurants, serving local recipes and using only fresh seasonal ingredients.
Italians often think foreigners only understand pizza and pasta but though I am Italian I know that isn't true.
My husband is a perfect case in point, although not Italian he is now a fanatical fan of authentic Italian regional cuisines.
Another good thing about these restaurants is that you will find
that the prices are a lot better than the restaurants in St. Marks
Square and other such tourist traps.

I hear from so many people frustrated about not being able to return to Italy. I feel for them. I know it is tough. It is tough for us too. Our main source of income was hotel bookings and advertising…
This is incredible! Who would ever have believed that Venice would ever look like this. Gone are the tourists, gone is the noise, the chaos. The stores are closed and the only sounds now are the sound…
Venice is not only the Bridge of Sighs and St Marks Square. There is a whole lot more to this great city. Join me, Maria, exploring the Venetian wonders few ever discover.
