Venice: Arriving in the dark! Where to eat in San Marco area?

Jump to last reply

We will be flying into Venice at dusk, and I'm sure it will be dark by the time we reach our hotel, Locanda Orseolo near Piazza San Marco. I did ask about this earlier, got great restaurant suggestions, but when I plotted them on the map, these trattorias seemed pretty far from our hotel for us to find our way there and back in the dark. We've never been to Venice before and will be severely jet-lagged.

I'm wondering if anyone can suggest a place for dinner that we can find fairly easily and won't be horrible. It doesn't have to be the best, but for that first dinner I'd like it to be decent enough. Not fancy. We'll be zombies and want to head for bed soon after.

The closest one mentioned before was Osteria alla Botte, which looks great, but from the map, I fear we would not find our way that first night. What do you think? Any other suggestions?
