After a morning spent visiting San Marco & the Doge’s Palace and a quick lunch at Bacaro Risorto, rain was still pouring, so we decided to go to the Guggenheim. But while walking towards it, rain finally stopped!!
^ Hubby working even during our romantic getaway 😉
I’d like to be a princess and then I would go every night at a ball in one of those beautiful palaces with my prince, we would dance all night and at dawn a gondola would take us home…
Back to reality, we really wanted to go on a gondola (that we could really have done ;p) but the rain stopped us… Nevermind, we’ll be back!
After all this walking, I think we deserved some rest, before going out for dinner.
Second one, La Cantina was another story 🙂
Less crowded and with younger & nicer crowd, very good ombre and cicheti were good as well (although we didn’t taste all that we would have loved to as in the first place we were supposed to go out for dinner after the aperitif ;p).
We could even get a table 😉
For dinner, we had a reservation at Vini da Gigio and old Venetian tavern.
Whatever has scallops in it, it’s very good to me 😉
And then spider-crab tagliolini and pesto & monkfish tagliolini
And of course pudding! Chocolate and nougat semifreddo (nothing exceptional)
We had a very good evening, but I wold not reccomand you Vini da Gigio. Even though much less elegant, I would rather recommend you Osteria al Portego, the place we had dinner the night before.
And tomorrow I’m taking you to Murano & Burano islands! 🙂
