Lunch in Venice - Help me narrow down my list.

Jinks | Sep 13, 2011 02:13 PM

I will be in Venice from Oct 1-4th, staying on the Fondamenta di Cannaregio.

With such a short trip I want to make the most of my time. In fact, the itinerary so far is restaurants with some site seeing maybe accomplished between meals. :0)

I've done my research but I would appreciate advice from my Chowfriends.

Reservations have been made for suppers:

Saturday-Alla Fontana
Sunday-Cicchetti crawl
Monday-La Zucca

I've come up with a short-list of restaurants for lunches but I'm having trouble narrowing it down. We don't arrive until mid-day on the 1st, so we really only have 2 lunches.

There will be 2 of us and we prefer to get "authentic" Venetian food as much as possible. Local ingredients, seafood and seasonal vegetables and good technique preferred over complex plating or fancy preparation. I'd prefer a sit down place where we can have a more leisurely lunch. The atmosphere does not need to be romantic - I want to fall in love with the people and city of Venice not my platonic travel mate.

The list so far:
Alle Botte
Osteria alle Botteghe
Anice Stellato
Enoteca Osteria Giorgione

I know Bancogiro is closed on Mondays. Are any of the other restaurants?

Ristorante Terrazza del Casin Dei Nobli is another restaurant we're considering, dependent on if we get to spend time in Dorsoduro.

Advice is appreciated.
