Posted a few days ago along following lines, but only got one reply - most unhoundlike ! Can anyone help ?
"Am in Venice over the coming weekend for 3 nights. Would appreciate recs for lunches and dinner. Am staying nr San Marco but want to avoid touristy places and/or getting ripped off.
Have eaten in Cannaregio when stayed in the past and had some great food but that was six years ago, so would appreciate up to date ideas !
Ideally would like somewhere close to San Marco for Friday night - reasonably basic will be fine and afriendly locals spot would be ideal. Open to suggestions at other times, though on one night we will probably go to the casino so somewhere smart would be nice.
Finally , is there any where to have a late drink if the mood takes us? We are late twenties/early thirties so ideally nowhere full of kids "
