So, this is not a local food review, but having recently returned from an anniversary trip to Venice, here are some food photos to enjoy…
Exotically dressed pasta, in Italian, rather than English sized portions:

Every guide book told us to go to the fish market early in the day as the boats came in to get the real fish market experience. Whatever. We reached there at 10am. It was stunning, although we were laughed at for taking pictures.

…And Cafe Florian on St Mark’s Square is apparently the oldest coffee house in Venice, and is full of beautiful (if kinda gaudy) interiors. The catch is, there are too many people in there to see anything but the ceiling. And you have to eat quickly to avoid being herded out by a door man.
The tea, affogato and (not very Italian) sacher torte were however delicious.
