Hello everyone,
I'm off to Venice next week, with a few day trips including Padua. I'm looking for restaurant recommendations. Any favourites?
Cheers,
Sandra

I have never been to Padua. In Venice I liked Al Covo, Osteria Alle Testiere, and Antiche Carampane. I had a lovely lunch outside at Osteria da Rioba. I have also been to Ristorante Wildner. It is on the ground level of the Hotel Wildner. I don't typically eat in hotel restaurants but I was planning a donor trip to Venice to see the biennale and I was there for an inspection tour with the events company we hired to help with logistics. The woman I was working with grew up in Venice and took me there for dinner one night. She new half the people in the restaurant and the food was excellent.

For cicchetti, I liked Cantine del vino schiavi and Osteria Al Squero. They are down the street from one another and Al Squero has a lovely view across a canal of the shop that builds and repairs gondolas. I also like to sit outside in Campo Santa Margherita and have a drink. It's a good people watching spot.

Philippa and I ate really well at ai Promessi Sposi last October, so here's another positive vote! I'm sure Nan (who hopes to join us on Wednesday evening) will have plenty of ideas, too. She and I ate (and drank) wonderfully this evening at CoVino (just around the corner from me this week, but a bit of a hike from Cannaregio...).

I looked at ai Promessi Sposi online. I have been there too and liked it. Probably a Shannon suggestion to begin with!
