To answer your question: No.

To answer the question you didn’t ask: Amsterdam is not a country. Neither is "hungry."

Well, maybe if you would try asking a question that people could take seriously, you would get a respectable response. Come back after you’ve spent your money on some education and not narcotics. Thanks. I could also go for some food. Late.

You guys crack me up……..especially Delfrio and Clunker.

My husband & I are traveling to Europe in July. We will be spending 2 days in Venice and 3 days in the Cinque Terre before taking the night train to Paris. Does anyone have suggesions for any particularly good restaurants in either of those places?

Thanks.

I know there were a few posts in the last couple months discussing restaurants in Venice. Try doing a search, because I cannot remember them. Also, one of my favorite things to do expecially in Venice is to sort of walk around and check out every restaurant’s menus I can find, and pick places to come back to later in my stay. You will find cheaper and more authentic restaurants in the residential areas, away from Rialto bridge and San Marco. Have fun, and remember it’s an adventure.

Thanks for the tip regarding Venice restaurants micahj. I’m brand new to this EuroTrip website, but I’ll try to figure out how to do a search.

Also try posting this under it’s own topic, you’ll probably get more responses.

I found great food in Cinque Terra just walking around. Try some of the small cafes on the side of an alley. Sometimes they’re so small, there’s only 2 tables.

I could crush you in any kind of intelligence contest. I was just writing quickly at work, and figured morons like you would catch my drift anyway. My mental beating of you would leave you broken and bruised.

So intelligent that you can’t recognize a little friendly ribbing, or that Delfrio was actually trying to help you? Grow up and stop being so uptight.

Are you overcompensating for something (sexual problems perhaps)?

Dr. Golf, in Cinque Terre there is a restaraunt I think you must go to. The name escapes me…but if you happen to be in Vernazza..walk to the lagoon…now there are a bunch of eateries on one side…but on the other side facing the ocean you will see steps going upto place that overlooks the water. You can sit in or out. I sat out overlooking the water. It has fantastic food, I believe its the oldest restaraunt there.

You should have no problem finding it…its the only one in Vernazza thats up a bunch of stairs and overlooks the ocean from above. Be sure to have a pasta dish w/ pesto in addition to some fish. The pesto was the best I ever had. The region is the birthplace of it…it might be called Gambero Rosso?

In Vernazza also go to II Pirata..they have great pastries, canolis, etc. They have other real food as well. You can go for breakfast too. The owners are characters.

In Manarola try "La Scogliera." Its very good.

In Monterosso try "Ristorante Al Pozzo."

In Venice, Trattoria Ai Cugnai is good. Its near Ponte Accademia. There is another place in that area called Flastavia e Masaniallo. Its very nice too, great risotto.

Thanks so much for your info regarding the Cinque Terre. We will be in two other countries and many gorgeous cities on or 16 day trip, but I am most excited about our 3 days in the Cinque Terre. I’ve read so much about it. Your post makes me look forward to it even more. I wrote all your restaurant suggestions down on 3X5 cards and will carry them in our tour books. Thanks again.

dont bother with delfrio. he is just an internet warrior. big tough guy hiding behind a computer. and yes, he is an A S S H O L E

online pricks like those two are loads that should have been swallowed.

anyway, jbird if youre looking to get high, just ask people working at the hostel youre staying at, im sure they will have some info you can use unlike these internet warriors.

I haven’t visited the "Nightlife, Eating, and Drinking" forum in awhile. There is some funny-ass shit going on in here. I’ll have to lurk more frequently.
