First trip to Venice since my stay at a nunnery in Guidecca 12 years ago... and this time I actually have two pennies to rub together!
So... we have one dinner already with a group (required attendance, not sure where) and thus have three evenings and four full days. I'm thinking that we should make reservations for dinner and wing it for a lighter lunch. Cichetti possible at lunch, or just at dinner?
I'm between these for dinner:
Al Fontego dei Pescatori
Lunch as stated above, and maybe Il Refolo or Alla Fontana if we don't make it for dinner. Or maybe just a gelati-only lunch ;)
Our eating goals: good food, not overly fussy, reasonably friendly environment (I've been working on my Italian, but a couple months of Italian tapes can only take you so far). We'd prefer to not spend crazy amounts on *every* meal, but are willing to pay for good food. I'm assuming that I should make reservations before leaving the states? We tend to eat late; what is the best go-to dinner time in Venice to actually be around Venetians?
I have been so impressed by the friendly and knowledgeable people on this board, and thus thank you all in advance!
