Hoping Jen Kalb or PBSF or another Venice poster might help. I am trying to re-find the restaurant I ate at in May 2009. Is there a search by location on Chowhound? Judging by google maps, I am pretty sure it was near Campo Stefano but I do not remember if it was in Campo Stefano or perhaps in the smaller square to the north of it. We ate outside, under a fairly large awning. I see that both Stefano and the neighboring square have restaurants with awnings. I never went into the restaurant so I cannot give you those details. I ordered the fresh fish special on the two nights we ate there and it was very good. My friends ordered pizza which was excellent. There were some foodies on a neighboring table who seemed very fussy and said it was the best place in Venice. The waiters were very solicitous to them as they carefully examined the selection of fresh whole fish before making their decision. I remember noticing that there were just one of each fish...or perhaps they just brought out one of each fish for them to make their choice. At the end of the meal the waiter brought us limoncello. The waiters were very nice to us although we had been running around Venice all day and were not dressed for fine dining. Based on the Chowhound descriptions, I am wondering if we happened upon Da Fiore but do they serve pizza at Da Fiore? I seem to remember that there was a bit of a gap between the awninged section and the restaurant. Or, could I be thinking of another restaurant in another square? Venice is so confusing so that is possible but I think the square was somewhere in this area because we passed people dressed up at theatre/opera intermission on our way back to our hotel Al Ponte dei Sospiri. We are leaving for Italy on Friday so any help would be appreciated. I would like to go back there in addition to trying out some other chowhounder recommendations. Thank you!
