Venetian restaurants; Venetian Bars; Venetian Pasticcerias,
Venetian gelaterias, Venetian Food Shops: do the places on that
list sound like places in which you might be spending some time
on your trip to Venice? If you answered yes to any of these
questions about eating in Venice, then you need "Chow! Venice."
Venice is a fantastic place, and there are fantastic Venetian
restaurants, but like any other major tourist destination, Venice
has its share of bad restaurants with inflated prices, unscrupulous
waiters, and mediocre food.
The authors of Chow! Venice, Ruth Edenbaum and Shannon Essa, wrote
this book because they love Venice, and they love good food. They
are tired of hearing and reading that you cannot get a decent meal
in Venice. They want people to experience the wonderful Venetian
restaurants, trattorias, osterias, wine bars, and cafes that are
too often unseen by the average tourist.
Chow! Venice offers an extensive list of Venetian restaurants and
bars as well as Venetian food shops, wine shops, pasticcerias, and
gelaterias and an extensive glossary of Venetian and Italian food
terms. Chow! Venice is a guidebook that will be invaluable in your
pursuit of the pleasures of the palate whether you are visiting
Venice for three days, three weeks, or three years, and whether
you have a baron's budget or count every centesmi.
