The Top Restaurants in Venice Italy -- 2013 Update

Note on eating out in Venice: Venice is an exception to the rule that Europeans eat late– some of the best-value foodie bars and bacaros (the bacaro is a peculiarly Venetian take on the Spanish tapas joint) serve lunch from noon to 1.30pm, dinner from 7pm to around 8.30pm.

Osteria Da Fiore   San Polo Calle del Scaleter, Venice, Italy 041-721-308 |
1 Michelin Star Restaurant --Once an old Venetian tavern, da Fiore is now considered one of the best restaurants in Venice. The restaurant has some excellent raw fish dishes... risotto and the "molecche". Osteria Da Fiore has excellent daily ingredients from the lagoon. The spider crab appetizer is one of the most popular dishes served. Homemade pasta dishes made from local fish were excellent. There is one table for two that sits outside on the canal. If you want a special romatic dinner this is the table to reserve.. --Web Site --- see: trip advisor reviews --4 stars
