We would like it to be nice. We are considering Met or maybe Da Fiore because they have Michelin stars. We do not often do this but we had a wonderful experience at such a restaurant outside of Palermo a few years ago that we would love to have again. How does Il Ridotto that everyone is raving about compare? I want to know about the food not the prices. The least nice restaurant that we went to on our previous Italy trip had a spaghetti Amatriciana that my husband loved and is still hoping I will someday duplicate so I know it does not have to be big or expensive to yield something we will love.
I have one more question because of many reviews saying that risotto was underdone in many places in Venice. The highlight of the meal we had outside of Palermo was a perfectly cooked risotto-it was just cacio di roma and the mushrooms in season but it had perfect bite and creaminess. Maybe it would be better to skip risotto in Venice and stick with seafood?
