Best restuarant for B'day meal

Hi all

I am travelling to Venice this weekend and want to bookj a very special romantic meal for my wife's 30th birthday. Having read through the forums here, i have come up with a short list of:

Antico Martini

Hotel Cipriani restauarant

Grizzi Hotel restaurant

I want to arrange a very special evening with a b'day cake perhaps.

Any advice and thoughts based upon past experiences will be greatfully received.

Many thanks

Very difficult to recommend a "best" restaurant as so much depends on your personal tastes.

Da Fiore at Calle del Scaleter, San Polo 2202 (www.dafiore.com) is the only restaurant in Venice with a Michelin star for what that is worth. I have never managed to eat there as always well booked up in advance.

The Gritti Palace, where my wife and I stayed for a week, certainly used to do a very fine meal in a restaurant alongside the Grand Canal with a great view across the canal to a floodlit Santa Maria Della Salute.

Others with a good reputation include

Le Bistrot de Venise, Calle dei Fabbri 4685 San Marco (www.bistrotdevenise.com)

Taverna La Fenice, Campo San Fantin 1939, San Marco (www.tavernalafenice.it)

Thanks for your comments. I appreciate what you are saying with regards to the best.

I guess what I am looking for is great food, great atmosphere and great views if possible.

The Gritti Palace sounds nice with the views. I am looing to book for a Monday night which rules out the Da Fiore as they are closed on that evening.
