Need input on these restaurants for 2 days in Venice

greybanded | | Jul 17, 2011 02:38 PM

My wife and I will be in Venice for just 2 days in early August. Staying at Bauer hotel. We would like the best combination of atmosphere and quality of food.
We want to go to some places where you know you are in Venice, romantic, but not total tourist traps. Also don't necessarily want to be shoulder to shoulder with other diners at same table and have to make conversation.
I have ruled out Da Fiore due to numerous reviews saying it is simply not worth it and if I pay that kind of money I want something like the French Laundry. One of the best meals of my life was in Italy however at Don Alfonso.
Thought possibly having lunch at the hotel at DaPrisis for atmosphere and convenience unless the food is not up to par with other nearby atmospheric places.
Osteria Boccadoro sounds like it is worth a try-what is the atmosphere like there and are there better places for food-how does that compare to Alle Testiere, Il Rodotto?
Also Antiche Carampane sounds interesting-how does it compare with the above mentioned in food and atmosphere?
Thought about Al Covo which sounds good but from the reviews I've read it seems like there might be better places for what I am looking for.
Again, I want the best combination of food and atmosphere,. NOT great food in a dive. NOT magical views and atmosphere with horrible tourist trap food.
Basically 2 lunches and one dinner plus some time to get a quick feel for Venice. Thanks to anyone who can help me.
