Perhaps the word "cheap" and Venice don't go together...
(please read all...thanks)
In any case, just as I did for Rome and Florence, I've created a spreadsheet of TA member-recommended places to eat there. If you would like me to forward you a copy(ies), please send me a personal message (PM) by clicking on my user name, jessfm107, then clicking on 'Send Message', and then specifying 1) your e-mail, and 2) which spreadsheet you would like to receive (Rome, Florence, and/or Venice).
Please refrain from posting your e-mail address on this thread, for the sake of safety/privacy, and to help streamline my processing of requests.
If you DO post your e-mail address on this thread, I will do my best to respond, but I may forget, as there are now three separate threads in the Italy forum. Sending a PM will ensure a quicker response from me.
Thanks and happy travels!
