We were staying near St. Marks square for our first visit to Venice. Seemed like a good idea at the time. We're not really cruise ship people and it felt like we were in tourist hell. As we searched for dinner and walked away from the crowds, we eventually found Al Vecio Marangon's red awning and warming interior situated between two small street corners off the beaten path. We ordered 2 antipasti for 4 of us... one cheese plate and one prosciutto plate. Both were very good. I also ordered the local cod (baccala) as a second (there are no pasta courses here) and it came with some grilled polenta and homemade clam sauce. The food was all simple but very good. The house white wine was decent and the price of the meal was decent. Price of meals is a funny thing in Italy because you choose when you order how much food you want up front for each course. We traveled with another couple and split many of the courses and were all full. That was only 2 antipasti, 1 second, 1 dessert, a 1/2 liter of house wine, and bread... I would definitely go back.
