Osteria alle Testiere. Venice. Italy. 5.12.2017.

When you go somewhere as touristy as Venice, you need to be well researched to be guaranteed great meals. Otherwise, you have a very high likelihood of eating at a tourist trap, a common complaint I overheard. Being the food snob that I am, I am very well researched everywhere I go. Life is too short for mediocre anything. You will want to make your lunch or dinner reservations well over a month in advance for anything great in Venice. I had made 2 high end reservations for Venice, but did not do so for the osterias and trattorias. Knowing that I had no chance of getting in for dinner for any of those, I would show up a bit before lunch and sweet talk my way into my lunch reservation in Italian. Thankfully it worked for the places I really wanted to check out. This would be one of them. I met 2 new friends at Farini over coffee, and I was able to get a table big enough for the 3 of us to have a nice lunch. Benissimo e grazie mille!
