Subject: Re: Venice - Hotel and restaurant recommendations?
Dear Jim:

I was just thinking about our trip to Venice! A little restaurant near us at home opened seating in an alley with lights strung around and it reminded me so such of being in Italy. In Venice we had great experience eating at Alla Zucca in Santa Croce. Small restuarant that sits on the edge of a small canal.

We stayed at both the Pensione Wildner and a small hotel called San Cassiano on the Grand Canal. Good experience at both. It has been a few years but perhaps you can see if others have had more recent experience by checking around.
