Prices of food and drinks

Hi, I'm thinking about going to Venice this summer, but I have no idea what are the prices for food and drinks. I know restaurants are expensive, I want to know if there are places to eat and drink without having to pay a ton for one meal.

Prices of cheaper meals, sandwiches, drinks in bars and in stores, you know, regular stuff.

This is something I found, but I want second opinion. https:/…

I recommend Corner pub and Dal Moro Fresh Pasta; both are delicious ;)

Also you can get pizza at 3 euros a slice, in many places.

I’m not sure about the prices in the link you’ve included in particular for breakfast. The Doge’s palace café may well do a coffee & pastry deal and you can have an espresso and pastry at the bar for under €3 but if you want cappuccino and want to sit down it will be more.

The Council is encouraging the reuse of water bottles and there are lots of water fountains you can refill a bottle at. See www.veneziaunica.it/en/content/refill-venice

Be aware (it’s not clear from your post where you will be visiting from but in the U.K. this isn’t what we expect though it’s normal in Italy) that there are generally two prices in bars - drinking at the bar (al banco) is cheaper. Prices if sitting are normally higher - you are served at the table and can stay as long as you want. The extra can be a Euro on top of the bar price or significantly more. The prices are posted

Restaurants have the menu outside so you can check that the food and price suits and if you want to sit down this maybe an option. If you are ok with standing chichetti will be a good option.

There are a lack of places to sit in Venice if you get takeaway food. Sitting in St Mark’s Square is not allowed and sitting on the steps at bridges is unfriendly to those wanting to cross the bridge, which you need to do to get anywhere in Venice and you risk a fine - not that we have seen any fines issued on our 20+ trips to Venice but we tend to visit off season. As there are going to be pedestrian flow restrictions over the summer fines may be more likely.

Re accommodation I’d say stay in Venice - you can walk everywhere in the centre and if you stay outside you will have to take into account the cost of travel into Venice. Also other posts on here have said buses in from Mestre were very busy. You also miss seeing Venice early and late when it’s less crowded.

These prices from our trip in January 2018, and prices hadn’t really changed since our visit a year ago, should give an idea.

Coffee (espresso at the bar) €1-1,30

Hot chocolate (with cream at the bar) €4-4,50

Spritz (at the bar) €2,50-3

Sfuso (open wine bought from a wine shop - take your own bottle along) €2,50-5 per litre

Water (bottle in a restaurant) €2,50-3

Wine (bottle of house wine in a restaurant) €5-7

Tramezzino (sandwich in white bread without crusts) €1,70

Chichetti (Venetian snacks / finger food to have a nibble with a drink - meatballs, various fried fish / vegetables, crostini etc) €1-3
