A canalside trattoria

Canalside trattoriaI snapped this one of a beautiful canalside trattoria from atop a bridge on a walk to San Marco from our place near the Rialto. Oddly, we came upon it again from the opposite direction on our way home, and without realizing it was the same place, we decided to eat there! The fish was delicious, the service good and the prices moderate; the ambiance and view were absolutely lovely. (A trattoria is a less formal restaurant.) Here we are quite happy, post dinner sitting on just the other side of where the first picture was taken…

We ended up walking past this lovely trattoria many times during our trip, but we didn’t eat there again and I had to look it up the Trattoria Sempione to tell you where it is.

(We loved this second photo so much, we chose to have it enlarged on canvas to be part our home gallery/shrine to our trip.)

  1. It was the Pensione Fiorini (for one exterior shot) in “Summertime”. For the rest of the film it was in two places (!) in Dorsoduro.
