Venice Food Articles and Restaurant Reviews
A collection of articles on dining in Venice, along with reviews that give prices and street directions.

Gelato in Venice
Italy's version of ice cream may be the best gastronomic bargain in Venice. Read my gelato-buying tips and mini-reviews of famous or favorite gelaterie.

Chow! Venice
Book review: Shannon Essa and Ruth Edenbaum have written a lively, informative guide to scores of Venetian restaurants and bars. The book also includes tips on how, when, and what to eat in Venice.

Café Life Venice
Book review: This "Guidebook to the Cafés and Bacari of La Serenissima" may have been the best new Venice book of 2008. It's also an irresistible gift for Venetophiles.

Antico Martini
This highly regarded 257-year-old restaurant has expanded its bilingual site to include menus, recipes, photos, history, and more.

Le Bistrot de Venise
Chef Ivano Frezza offers two menus: "Venetian classic cuisine from popular local traditions" and historic Venetian cuisine from the 14th Century. You can read the menus and book a table online.

Caffé Florian
The Piazza San Marco's most elegant café has served the cognoscenti since 1720. The prices are breathtaking, but where else can you share a dining room with the ghosts of Casanova and Balzac?
