25 October. We’ve had some excellent food in the past three days. On Sunday, we went back to Acqua Pazza, a place we loved in 2004. It’s as we remembered it. Lots of seafood, pizza and the ice cream/sorbets served in the fruit, like chestnut. And the complimentary limoncello is still there. The service can be a little slow so expect to wait a little bit for the food if the place is full. Yesterday we ate at Alla Botte, a little place near Rialto recommended by the web site Visit Venice. The girls had steak, Kim had a sea bass pasta and I had a fritto misto. All excellent. I had some Cicchetti of baked cuttle fish and prawns.
Today, we got into a popular restaurant L’Osteria di Santa Marina for lunch. I had a Boletus mushroom strudel and then a squid ink tagliatelle with lobster sauce. Great desert of persimmon meringue mille feuille.
