Great Pasta, Gnocchi or Risotto for lunch ?

by jeana-r

Hi,
Looking for a place off the beaten track for some great pasta, risotto, or gnocchi (and okay, a glass of wine). Don't want to spend a ton of money, and I am traveling solo, so looking for a casual spot.
Thanks!
Jeana

I had lunch here twice during my stay in Venice last December:
Osteria da Francesca
Cannareggio, 1423 Venezia
041 716269
www.osteriabentigodi.com

to get there: it is the first turn to your left when you come to the Rio Terra Farsetti (off Rio Terra San Leonardo) it is near the train station.

I found the prices modest, everything is home cooked and I noticed a vegetarian lasagne on the menu apart from pasta, gnocchi and risotto. They also have wonderful homemade desserts, the chocolate cake was delicious.
I'd say this place is off the beaten track and it is casual, it is okay to take only one main course and a salad.

In the Rialto area there are lots of good places to eat; I would recommend the Osteria alla Botte, San Marco, 5482

It's very nice, and you can eat a good pasta - especially with fish!

There is very cute little restaurant at Paludo San Antonio, street which can be entered from Giardini Pubblici. The restaurant looks like you have dropped at friend's for lunch. It is highly recommended at some travel guides. Unfortunately we do not have a tip on it because we have lost the name of it.

Travel Tips for Venice

by slaybelle

try their Pasta. Venice is not the place to order spagetti with tomato sauce. Most of their pasta is paired with seafood sauce. Although Venetian cuisine is based on seafood, it can still be expensive usually priced by 100 grams.

Table service is extra sometimes double so don't sit at a table unless you want to be served. Tell the cashier what you want, pay for it then take the stub to the counter to wait for your order, there you shall eat and drink standing. Quiz-time:-) PASTA or PAINTER:

1. Tintoretto 2. Tagliatelle
3. Bellini 4. Tonnarelli
5. Mantegna 6. Cannelloni
7. Rigatoni 8. Vemeziano

by FinElina

I was in Venice last July. It was a beautiful city, really worth to see but too hot! And the water doesn't smell too good... In July there weren't so many tourists, which was just good. I guess in August there will be a lot more!

It seems nearly impossible not to get lost in the labyrinth of small and large canals. Some are very picturesque with colorful laundry hung out to dry form one side to the other in the narrow passage and underneath silent gondolas floating by. Others are hustling and bustling , motorboats are like trucks, carrying anything immaginable. Everything going on in the streets of any major city in the world, in Venice it is happening on the water. Incredible! There is the mail boat, the ambulance, the police, you name it!

Rialto Markets - Ever since the year 1079.

by Jerelis

One huge advantage of sleeping in the city of Venice itself is that you´re able to strawl through the streets early without having the masses of tourists around you. It´s also best to arrive early at the Rialto Markets if you want to see the Pescaria (fish market) and Erbaria (vegetable market) in full swing. The barges start arriving at dawn and the vendors are bargaining with costumers by 77 or 8 am. The wholesalers and most retailers close up by midday, so stock up on fruit, vegetables and photo opportunities before lunch!

When strolling at the market you can trully sense the vibe that ever since the year 1097 Venetians have depended on the Rialto Markets for their daily supplies of fish, vegetables, fruit and other foodstuffs. The markets are open to the public and at the early hours there is no better show in town. Stevendors unload crates of produce from gbarges, vendors hawk their wares, restaurant chefs examine the daily supply of fish, crustaceans and bivalves, delivery men push handcarts loaden with fruit and vegetables. We definately witnessed the hive of activity and the atmosphere was a riot of colours.

Address:
Rialto Markets, San Polo

Directions:
From the vaporetto stop at Ponte di Rialto (Rialto Bridge) cross the bridge and work your way to the right and you’ll encounter the Erberia along the water and the Pescheria is further along.

Opening hours:
Pescaria (fish market):
07:30 am – 12:00 pm
Erbaria (vegetable market):
07:30 am – 13:00 pm

Luggage

by paradisedreamer

Once you get off the waterbus at whatever point in Venice you will inevitably have to walk to your hotel. It is better to bring a backpack rather than a suitcase on wheels as all the bridges have stairs and there will me many off them, saves you having to lug your suitcase up and down. Make sure you get good directions to your hotel as it is very easy to get lost and not all alleyways are marked.
