We just returned from a wonderful few days in Venice, made all the better by a few fantastic meals at restaurants we found on Chowhound. I just want to reiterate that dinner at Alle Testiere is not to be missed. The food is superb, the wine list is thoughtful and well-priced and the service is wonderful. Just remember that they only have 2 seatings/night and that there is no place to wait (except outside on the street, where you can make friends with the other anxious diners waiting for a memorable meal). The next night, we dined at Il Ridotto, an incredibly small and yet perfect restaurant. It was delightful to see the staff bring fresh produce and wine in from wherever it is kept nearby, since the kitchen is not much more than you would find in a small, NY apartment. Finally, before our flight, we enjoyed the delicious pizzas at Il Refolo. While it was too cold and windy to sit on the patio, it was still worth searching out.
