We were on a Celebrity cruise that docked overnight in Venice. Our friends found this ristorante while sightseeing during the day and suggested we all go back for dinner that night. (We were both celebrating 45th anniversaries in May.) The interior is charming, the food fantastic, and the service excellent! I had the bruschetta and my husband had an octopus salad for starters. Our waiter showed us a platter of different colors/styles of homemade pasta and helped us decide what to have with the pastas. I had pasta carbonara and my husband decided on the pasta with shrimp, artichokes and mushrooms. Our friends enjoyed their meals as well. The lasagna was fantastic and a combination seafood dish was outstanding. The homemade desserts all looked very enticing, but we were way too full. All four of us really, really enjoyed the meal and will remember always how we celebrated our 45th Anniversaries!
