Restaurant in Florence or Venice

Hi all,

Will be in Florence then Venice next week and looking for a nice meal that will cost about 50 euros a person. I appreciate your suggestions.

    1. Based on our experience In Florence last month, you may have trouble finding both "nice" and "E50 per person" at least with a good bottle of wine (which it would be a shame to pass up, considering where you'll be). Even the good trattorias seemed to be more expensive than that, at least in the old center. We much enjoyed Giovanni in Via del Moro, and Profeta in Borgo Ognissanti, but in both cases the bill for two courses (1 primo divided for 2, and 2 secondi, plus a nice wine) was E130.

      1. Florence: I Ghibellini (Piazza Di S. Pier Maggiore, 8). Great local cuisine, good prices, friendly service.
        Venice: Osteria Giorgione (Calle Proverbi). Really good seafood! More like 55-60eu per person with wine. Trattoria Storica (Cannaregio, 4858 Ponte dei Gesuiti) A lovely, laid-back, local place with a moderate fixed-price menu, or not. Off the beaten path, but walkable from Rialto/San Marco.

        1. Suggest Trattoria Garga on 48R Via Del Moro in Florence, you will love it and if you meet the owner ask him to see his art/wine cellar. Veal with Avocado sauce is fantastic. Well priced

          1. When in Florence make sure you have dinner at Acqua Al 2 located at Via della Vigna Vecchia

            excellent recommendation several small rooms usually very busy.
