Venice is such a pretty place, with no cars at all, but lots of boats, bridges, water and walking instead. Perfect for burning off some Italian carbs! Italians were just taking their time to enjoy some caffe or dessert after eating, we had wine every meal, dined by the river and had a wonderful time. Do note that many restaurants have cover or service charges but you can still spot some without!
Very nice tiramisu, though there seems to be some custard included.
The colourful island of Burano…
Da Paolo Bistro Bar occupies a beautiful colonial house at Rochester Park, and as you can imagine, is very comfortably spacious with both indoor and outdoor seating plus a bar area. The place is simply furnished, but there is still a certain dignified elegance to it.
The Robertson Quay area is my new dining obsession. And first up is Bella Pizza! Heard some good things about them, was hoping that the effort taken to travel to Robertson Quay will be dutifully rewarded at dinner.
A dinner treat from friends brought me to visit Pete’s Place sooner than I expected. Situated at the basement “hole” of Hyatt Hotel, you can only access it down a flight of stairs on the left side. With it’s rustic decor of red bricks, dark wood, terra cotta tiles and feeling of being in a big homely cellar, the setting felt very cosy and romantic.
