Venice restaurants - "lunch in a sestieri a day" idea?

celebrating | Jan 29, 2009 10:09 PM

We have a romantic week in Venice planned for Feb 9-15th, our first trip. There is so much to see, I am thinking of building our trip around "where to eat for lunch each day", thinking we'll have light "chicetti" dinners before music etc in the evenings (most nights except Valentines).

He's a real foodie, loves fresh simple food and good wine. I eat fish & vegetarian things, no other meat/poultry.

I know I have to navigate "days closed", but wanted to hear ideas about "the best place for lunch" by sestieri?

I still have to "locate" a few places I've heard a lot about - Al Covo, Obika, Metropole Hotel, Vecio Fritolin, etc, but to get started, here's what I have so far... any ideas/suggestions would be helpful. We are not focused on budget, but rather on great food, great eating experiences, great places to discover and love....

For Valentine's night dinner (Sat 14th), I'm thinking Da Fiori sounds like the best bet for "best Venice restaurant" but if you have other (romantic) ideas, please do share! Carnevale starts on Feb 13th, so some areas may be a little crowded then...

Your ideas, thoughts, votes, would be so appreciated! Thankyou!
