Sestiere , San Marco, 4685, Venice, 30124 [Map]
The Bistrot de Venise takes you through an intriguing and fascinating journey through the history of Venetian cuisine and fine wine. Open since 1993, this charming place is the epitome of a uber chic and trendy restaurant, but the touches of class are equally present, making this one of those rarities where classical and contemporary come together in a most beautiful harmony.
Since the time it has thrown its doors to the public, the Bistrot de Venise has attracted various writers, poets and other well known personalities who have lent it the air of being a cultural epicentre. There?s also a sense of soothing calm; the décor is understated and elegant and the dimly lit rooms, stained glass paintings, dark wood, and cream walls with old framed photographs and posters help to create a convivial and welcoming atmosphere. The al fresco arrangement is true to its name, providing a beautiful setting in the gently unfolding dusk, perfect for a romantic and intimate dinner.
A look at the menu will surprise those who are expecting typical Italian fare, because their basic premise is to introduce the tastes of historical Venetian cuisine, going back by quite a few centuries, to the 14th onwards. Naturally, the tastes are unique and pleasing and something you will remember with delight. Consider the old fashioned pasta with saffron, lamb meat and offal sauce followed by the veal liver with onions and polenta and ending with an almond and pistachio pudding with candied lemon as an excellent example of the sampling menu.
An à la carte in this section could bring you hors d'oeuvres such as carpaccio of marinated sturgeon on artichoke; duck breast confit with mango chutney and fennel jelly or a duet of salt cod fish with chick peas. For first course, there's homemade large ravioli filled with game and pumpkin sauce; tagliatelle with lagoon eel and aromatic herbs, or risotto with dried stock fish.
As the meal progresses, the main courses may include venison fillet with eggplant flan and sautéed vegetable pie; fish baked with potatoes, tomato, olives and caper fruits or baked veal tongue with spices and stewed savoy cabbage. End with fresh cheese and pine nut fritters with wine and cinnamon sauce; glazed beetroots, mascarpone cream and macaroons or crème brûlée with pumpkin and ginger ice cream.
As part of the venture of delving into historical food, the wines at Bistrot de Venise also mirror this fascination with the past and you can spot many a rare wine in their enoteca. Their research has been deep and accurate, helping them uncover unique gems of the wine tradition. Some of the finds include Bianchetta, Rabosi and Oseleta varieties as well as the great classics of the North East and they have over 60 wines by the glass with more than 200 highly select Italian and French labels. Regular wine tasting sessions and other events make this a well loved hub. More information can be found on their Website.

Via Assietta 20, Sauze D'oulx, 10050 [Map]
Situated in the heart of Sauze D'oulx, Ristorante Del Falco is a quaint and charming family owned inn that derives its name from the Hawk bird, with a sign over the front door prominently displaying the family coat of arms. Frequented by tourists who are on sightseeing trips to view the Chapel of Saint Rocco, or the ornate fountains and atmosphere in the village squares, the restaurant sports an ambience which reflects the same charm of cobbled pathways, exposed stone walls, casual seating and a rustic elegance. Divided into two floors, it serves as a spacious dining area for small parties as well as large gatherings.
Offering a wide variety of traditional Italian cuisine, the restaurant sources most of its ingredients from local markets and serves dishes of broccoli flan with parmesan cheese fondue; and carpaccio of wild boar roast ham for starters. Mains comprise pasta dishes of baby gnocchi with radicchio and walnut, or roast loin of pork with wild mushrooms, followed by desserts of fresh tiramisu with amarello.
A wide range of fine Italian wines and other beverages accompany the wholesome meal.

Marco Bistarelli is standing by his restaurant 'Il Postale' in the heart of Italy, in the ancient Perugia. And Umbria is on the plate because the chef is inspired by that tradition. He has created the premises out of an old garage from the thirties. His cuisine makes the most of local ingredients with a creative twist.
