The itinerary was Milan, Como, Lazise, and Venice. And it could not have been a more perfect way to celebrate being Mr. and Mrs. Fictional Kitchen. If you are anywhere near a Venchi Chocolates, you must absolutely get some gelato. It is amongst the best I have ever eaten!
Amongst the amazing dinners we had was one in Como, at Il Carrettiere, a typical Sicilian restaurant with a fantastic prix fixe. Not pictured is our antipasto, which we devoured without photographing. Salami, caponata, crocchette, grilled pecorino wedges, and marinated vegetables. Beautiful and delicious.
Venice had many notable dinners, though a special shout-out is deserved by Trattoria da Ignazio and La Zucca. The trattoria’s seasonal fish dish was superb and only beat by the beautiful ambiance. La Zucca has a primarily vegetarian menu which is innovative and spectacular. Definitely make a reservation!
