Where and what to eat in Venice when visiting
When people ask me where to eat in Venice – I always say NO WHERE, because it’s true,
even the locals think so. However my recent trip to Venice has changed my mind because I
discovered new places to eat……
After I prepared my list of recommendations from local people that I trust I can share with
you and you read all about my experiences here.
And now you can enjoy my list too.
I used to walk from the train station to San marco the main square and back… because I
didn’t have google maps back then but is a must in order to not get lost.
This time I had Carla with me and a Google map.
On the way to the Rialto bridge we walked through the Mercato Ittico di Rialto full of fresh fish and vegetables and near the market Carla told us there are many small bars to have tapas and A Spritz typical from Venice, now very trendy in the world.
When you are in San Marco there are many ways to take, We sat at Caffè Florian.
This place is truly an historic cafe and entering it feels like going back in time, it was opened since 1720.
Don’t forget to have a coffee and a delicious patisserie and feel the atmosphere as it was 100 years ago.
Near San Marco you can also find Harry’s Bar Cipriani, also very famous with the Venetians.
A very homey place to have your dinner. Food was excellent. They have a garden for the summer time.
Osteria al squero & Squero di San Trovaso
A very small and crowded place But has the best tapas, yes, tapas in venice for 1 euro each and they are just delicious that you can’t stop eating them. take 5 with a glass of wine and go sit outside in front of the gondola traditional boatyard (squero di San Trovaso). yes, here they fix and build gondolas, such a great view.
On the same street you can also find another great and famous “tapas and wine” place
Cantine del Vino già Schiavi
If you love seafood dishes Oniga is the place for you, don’t forget to book in advance it tends to be full.
Coffee is good in most of the places in Italy, in venice we found a very good patiserie with great Bombolone ( my favorite one- a must try if you are in italy). it was the time of the panatone (famous cake for christmas) and they were making hundreds of them a day.
