I don’t have a favorite cuisine but Italian is one of my tops, mainly because I love a good linguini pasta with pomodoro sauce. I asked my mom, “is pasta really good in Italy?” And she said no, but you can find it everywhere. She was right! Every restaurant we had served the classic pasta and pizza. Tip: choose your restaurants wisely.
My grandpa recommended eating at Harry’s Bar. That was where the Bellini was made, a sparkling wine mixed with white peach puree. My parents said it was too sour, but hey it was authentic!
The Florian is located in San Marco square. If there’s one thing you should get, it’s the hot chocolate. But we also tried a few things. The pizza and ham and cheese sandwich are especially good if you’re looking for a quick bite.
La Spada is home to the best steak (florentine steak) we tried the whole trip. Their pastas were pretty good as well. Sorry, no pictures! I remember being very hungry that night.
I was guessing that Gelateria Dondoli was the best gelato in town because the line was incredibly long. Worth it though, who can’t resist a cold cup of gelato on a hot summer’s day.
I’m pretty sure we ate at La Capricciosa on our last night. The only dish I recommend is the Ossobuco; veal braised in vegetables, wine and broth. As a side dish, saffron risotto. Yum!
That marks the last post of our trip to Europe. If you’re going there anytime soon, have a great time and take lots of pictures! I certainly want to go back and explore other cities.
