Pasta for everyone!

You cannot go anywhere in Italy without stopping to eat a bowl of pasta. Venice is no exception. Throughout the city, many traditional restaurants are opening up, though not all offer homemade fare. So the recommendation for starting is to avoid the busiest areas and take some time to find a place to eat. If you're walking in the northern part of the city, you can look for the Dell'Oca street near the Grand Canal and enter the Osteria Ai Promessi Sposi. Although somewhat difficult to find, it is well worth it if you want to eat homemade pasta in a relaxed and informal atmosphere, because here the premium is on quality food and treatment. Visiting the southern part of the city, if you are in Dorsoduro, when it’s time to eat you can walk to the southernmost tip of the city, near the Gallerie dell'Accademia, to eat in the Taverna San Trovaso. Here, although there is more variety, you will find a good example of handmade pasta at an affordable price. You can see this, because the diners are usually workers from the area or students. It is also a good place where you should not miss trying the pasta nero di sepia or pasta with prawns.
