Le Campane, Venice, Italy
This inviting, brightly lit restaurant looks like a small, intimate trattoria from the street, but once you pass the first few tables it opens into a labyrinth of rooms. We were impressed with the number of locals, regulars, and tourists who continually entered the restaurant while we were dining.
Since we had eaten a large lunch (it was Easter Day), we opted to share a salad fresca and pizza prosciutto crudo. Perfect! The salad was composed or market fresh arugula and butter lettuce, small tomatoes, black olives and parmesan cheese. Olive oil and balsamic vinegar were supplied at the table. The pizza was plenty for two, but many folks were eating the entire pie alone! As is the local style, the pizza was very thin with a crispy crust, lightly sauced and cheesed, and loaded with fresh Parma ham. We shared a carafe of the local white wine. There was a 1 euro charge for each dish shared but the total bill was still right at 40 euros, so not too bad for a good, light meal in an expensive city!
