Venice - what do you think of these

What do you think of these restaurants:

Do Forni
Linea d'Ombra
Fiaschetteria Toscana
Da Fiore

They come recommended, but I always wonder if I can trade up.

One of us is a vegetarian, if that matters.

  1. Osteria da Carla, best selection of soups, fish, and beautiful vegetables. get there early (11:30 am). For good seafood, he says to try Hostaria da Franz, which serves a great baby octopus prepared with Sambuca. Or try Osteria alle Testiere for clams with ginger. For good pasta e fagiolipasta with beans, check out Osteria Bentigodi da Andrea or Osteria alla Bomba.

    Many tourists like to sit in Piazza San Marco and enjoy an aperativo before dinner, or a coffee any time of the day. The two most famous places to do this are Caffè Florian and Caffè Quandri, situated opposite each other on the piazza.
