The restaurants recommended in this blog have all been visited by me and my wife and often with friends. We have visited them at least once. I only recommend restaurants that have a quality that, in my opinion, makes them worth a visit.
Some are world class restaurants, some are very simple, but the food is always worth the price and the chefs have prepared it with pride and love of good food.
The food is essential for being mentioned here. Minor problems when it comes to service and other things are mentioned but does not disqualify them from being recommended. We have also eaten in some restaurants in the area that do not leave any memories worth writing about. Finally we have been to very few bad restaurants and have been badly serviced in a few. These three categories are marked differently in List of Restaurants.

It is expensive to eat in Venice and it is full of tourist traps were you leave without feeling that you have got worth your money. We however found a very good restaurant that was packed with local people. We understood later that it was quite famous among local people. We got fantastic lamb-chops and turbot that was a dream. Perfect to a reasonable prize.
