Verona, Venice, Pisa

I’ve recently visited two very distinctive Italian regions: Sicily in the South and Veneto with Verona and Venice in the North. The food and drinks available in each of these regions are inseparably connected to their climate, landscape and of course the people. This is my third visit to this country and definitely not the last. The first time we spent a long weekend around the Tuscany region. I will share some highlights/recommendations for Verona, Venice and Pisa.


We found a little gem hidden only 5 minute walk from the crowds around Arena di Verona and Piazza Bra (La Tradision). This place is inexpensive, which is a perfect excuse to try several types of Prosecco from the region.  There is also some outdoor seating in the back, away from the scorching sun. In brief, we loved this place and would recommend it for location, venue, price, meat and cheese boards and of course Prosecco.

We also visited an ice cream parlour just off piazza Delle Erbe (the main square). I was in heaven! You can choose as many flavours as you like with a cone size of your choice. I went all out in terms of flavours as you can see on the picture below. The place is called Amorino. The staff is very friendly and speak various languages.

Having seen the main highlights of Verona, we took a train to Venice. We found a picturesque restaurant with its romantic balcony tables overlooking a canal in San Polo (Trattoria Dona Onesta, on the right on the picture). The setting was stunning and the food was ok.

On our final day we found a nice Trattoria in the peaceful Cannaregio and were lucky to find seating just by the canal. My seafood pasta was delicious and the prices were reasonable. (Trattoria Misericordia) Finally, a place I also recommend for foodies, is the Rialto market, where you can get fresh produce.

One recommendation I would like to make for Pisa is La Pergoletta. You can enjoy delectable food in an elegant and romantic environment. The prices are slightly higher and the portions on the smaller side, however we very much enjoyed our visit and would visit again.
