Chow! Venice: Savoring the Food and Wine of La Serenissima

by Ruth Edenbaum and Shannon Essa

The city of Venice is one of the most beautiful in the world, but a visit is too often marred by meals at bad restaurants with high prices, unscrupulous waiters, and tasteless food. With this book in hand, the traveler will find the best places to eat and drink in Venice, from a simple sandwich to pizza to an elegant four course meal, in places off the beaten track as well as steps away from the Piazza San Marco.

The reader will learn how, when and what the Venetians eat and drink, where to get the best cichetti (Venetian bar snacks) and where to find restaurants and bars open after 10:00 pm. In addition to 40 restaurants and 40 bars, there is a list of markets, specialty food stores and wine shops.

Whether you are visiting Venice for three days, three weeks or three months, Chow! Venice is a guidebook that will prove invaluable.
