A Month in Venice - recs?


#1

I’m thrilled to be able to spend over a month in Venice, and have my few favorite restaurants (I LOVE Locanda Montin). If you had all this time to eat your way through Venice, where would you go?

Am going to Bologna and Ravenna, also. Recs there?


#2

Day trip to the Colli Eugani to get stracotto d’asino.

Which month?


#3

Oh no, that I wouldn’t eat. Am there mid April to end of May.

Watching this thread. I’ll also be in Venice in May (but not for a month, lucky you!).


#5

I hate you all

From my last trip to Venice in 2013:
Liked:
Il Ridotto - fixed menu, excellent. Seating inside only. A bit formal. Most people there appeared to be well to do Italian or European visitors. Few blocks behind Basilica St. Marco.
Osteria Di Santa Marina - http://osteriadisantamarina.com/
My favorite, nice outside seating too, Nearly all patrons are Italians, did not see many tourist types. informal atmosphere. somewhat modern interpretations. Service was a bit slow but really got much better as the evening went on and we have made friends with the staff. They were a bit surprised how fast and how thoroughly we ate everything.

Trattoria All’Antica Mola

A few that were just ok, but I would not go back:

Al Covo - good quality food but boring and somewhat oriented towards well to do English speaking tourists.
Osteria alle Testiere - locals only. Simple seafood
