These are very popular topics on this message board. If you do a search on Venice restaurant or Venice hotel or just Venice you will find tons of information.
Or just scroll down on the messages on the left side for the past several days, there have been recent postings on this subject.
As for hotels (and restaurants), what do you prefer to spend? What amenities do you require--elevator, a/c, etc?
When are you going?

Message: For this question there ARE lots of good recent threads, including one "collection of URL threads"

===============================

And your question about hotels is a little bit confusing: "Always looking"... ?? Sounds like you travel to Venice often, but you "always" want to "add to" your (already extensive?) list of hotels - - any information on "new finds" or the discovery of previously unknown "great little" places that others find?

Can you give us an example of the kinds of places you already know well?

Best wishes,

Rex

Jeanie,

Just got back from Venice and loved the small hotel that I stayed in: Locanda Barbarigo. You can read more about it on the thread - just put in the search word "kiki".

Al COvo. Great fish restaurant run by an Italian and his Texan wife.

I love Quadri and La Caravella, but they are very expensive and I don't know if you want to spend that kind of money.

There is a great seafood restaurant (am I being redundant?) on the island of Burano called Gato Nero. Everything is so fresh you will swear they pull in fishing nets at the back door; the prices will leave you happy.

Have a nice trip.

Two of our favorites are Harry's Dolci on the guidecca and Monaco and Grand on the Grand canal. Both are directly on the water and have excellent food and great views. Both are great for lunch.

There's a wonderful little restaurant on the Dorsoduro and the Zaterre vaporetto stop called Gianni's. We liked it so much we went twice! You can actually walk there from the Academia Bridge, and also from Santa Maria della Salute, and it's an interesting walk. On a nice day, you can sit outdoors. The pizza is to die for -- not that sad imitation they sell in San Marco and for which they charge a small forturne! -- and the seafood is fresh and excellent. Try the frito misto. Yum.

Just returned from 3 days in Venice, my 3rd time there. Generally Venice restaurants tend to be overpriced, but then again, everything comes by boat!

For a good cheap meal, though, try the Osteria alle Botteghe, on Calle Botteghe, between S. Stefano and Palazzo Grassi. It's best described as a workingman's diner; noisy, full of contruction workers and other locals. No smoking. The menu is hand-written and in Italian only, but you'll eat better than the place down the street with the 4-language menus, at half the price.
