The city of Venice is one of the most beautiful in the world, but visits are too often marred by meals at bad restaurants with high prices, unscrupulous waiters, and tasteless food. Chow! Venice reveals the best places to eat and drink, from simple sandwiches and pizzas to elegant four-course meals. Discover places off the beaten track as well as steps away from St. Mark's Square.

Learn how, when and what Venetians eat and drink, where to get the best cichetti and where to find restaurants and bars open after 10:00pm. In additions to restaurants and bars, there's a list of markets, specialty food stores, and wine shops.

Reviews - What do customers think about Chow Venice: Savoring the Food and Wine of La Serenissima, Second Edition ( Revised and Updated)?

Save your money and I will tell you why...  Apr 4, 2008
We just returned from Venice( March 6th - 11th, 2008) and used this book for three of our dinning choices and they were the worst of all our dinning experiences. We stayed at a lovely B and B called the Locanda Orseolo and Barbara and Gigi and their staff suggested our best dinning experiences in Venice. I will give you two of our three examples. Page 13, Vino Vino dry pasta and the most boring salad, a handful of lettuce in a bowl and Bimbo quality bread and even with our most limited selections there was no way to escape that place in the inexpensive category and as for the four gondoliers hanging out at this local eatery it was full of very loud tourist. Page 15 Taverna La Fenice( yes we went to the right address) we went to dinner there after we saw Electra at the La Fenice Opera house. No the waiter did not know or have any great or even mild English language skills as suggested in the book, the most uncomfortable seats to ever rest on and we had the risotto because "you can not go wrong" and it was the second worst risotto we had in 24 days in Italy. The fish was dry and all we could do was laugh and finish our wine and pay not the expensive category price as this book suggests but pay the very expensive, and we do not mind spending money, but this in any country was not worth the mention. Venice is not known as a culinary hub as the entire country of Italy will tell you but you can have local excellent meals there so go there and ask a local or call Gigi but my suggestion is to save your money don't buy this book because sincerely you don't need it and use the money and buy yourself a treat as you walk around magical Venice
Terrific!!  Aug 23, 2007
What a great update on a very useful book! The last several years I've spent weeks at a time in Venezia...cruising every calle for foodie gems! What a delight it was finding the first edition of this delightful book...and the update reassures the reader a present-time evaluation!!
Many thanks to Shannon and Ruth!!!
Invaluable Guide  Jul 20, 2007
At last, a book written by people who have actually LIVED there! While dining in Venice can be problematical, these two gals have eaten (and eaten and eaten) their way through the city and have given Americans, in particular, all the info we need for a successful visit. We found their recommendations to be spot-on, as the English say. The only thing missing is notations as to when the restaurants are closed; for example, many Venetians close up shop for vacation in August and if you want to make reservations ahead, you have to search the net for their websites to inquire, or do as I finally did -- contact my hotel ahead of time and give them a list.
Yes, buy this book and try the restaurants, but...  Jul 13, 2007
I brought this guide to Venice with me last time, and I'll bring it next time too. It's a good little book. The ladies point out some very nice restaurants. However, the anecdotes really suck. All they do is point out special treatment that they've received at one restaurant or another, and this is very unbecoming in what ought to be impartial criticism. I know how thrilling it is to be considered an insider in Venice, but the authors should show a little professionalism and keep it under their hats.
Thanks to Chow Venice, we had the most wonderful meals  Jul 6, 2007
I cant recommend this book enough. I had heard many things about Venice and the restaurants being mediocre and overpriced and thought, just add us to that list. I then read on many people had very positive dining experiences using Chow Venice and were recommending it, so I placed my order. After perusing it, my husband and I dog eared half the book of places we wanted to try. Trying to narrow that list was difficult! Every one of our meals recommended by Chow Venice was delicous. I also liked that it gave detailed directions to the restaurants and the food/ingredient translation came in handy.
