The ultimate food journey, Italy!
Just returned from a trip where we had some amazing meals all in the name of blog research, right?! First we went to Venice where the prosecco flows freely. We tried hard to get away from the touristy/pricey areas and did very well! At Casa Bonita in the Cannaregio area we found a delicious bargain. The first night we just ordered pasta, salad, desert, and wine but after sitting there we clued in to what the locals were ordering and had to go back the next night to do it right. This (pictured) was an amazing, very venetian appetizer, but we couldn't clarify the names of some of the items. We tend to call everything shrimp and each item had a different name such as scampi, prawns, shrimp etc. There was some raw tuna and octopus too. So fresh!
Then we had the grilled fish of the day and the waiter filleted it all right at the table for us.
A real treat just to watch him.
A day didn't pass with out our afternoon macchiato.
