Venice - Dinner at Osteria La Zucca

I had just a couple of restaurants that were must-do's on this trip, and Osteria La Zucca was one of them. A lot of my Slow Travel friends have been there and raved about the food.

So, I was really, really happy that Shannon and Kim chose La Zucca for our Monday night dinner.

All of the rave reviews were confirmed - the food was wonderful!

We started with a couple orders of Pumpkin Flan. Wow and double wow! It was wonderful!

I then chose a Lasagna special, but I am not sure what kind it was. I will check with one of my compadres and post later about it.

We also shared an assortment of vegetables.

And we shared three different desserts.

But, lest I forget, before we went to La Zucca, Shannon took us to her favorte campo for a little wine or spritz. It was beautiful, with lots of shade trees and Italians doing their passegiata walks. It was great fun to sit and watch everyone - kids and dogs and the elderly.

Nancy, what campo was this? Love reading your blog. Where are you now?

Pumpkin flan! What an amazing dish. So glad you were able to go to La Zucca and also Al Prosecco wine bar. Sounds like you're having a wonderful time!

Barb Cabot:

Loved reading this. I took my girls there when I knew Shannon only through Chow Venice. Loved the area where this is located, quiet nestled away neighborhood. Thank you for blogging.

sheri:

Great photos! That food looks fabulous as does the Campo & the company!
