Osteria San Marco, Venice, Italy – June 22, 2009

This is the first place we ate in venice. It is a small enoteca near piazza san marco on frezzaria.

The food was excellent and the service perfect. The waiter recommended a few reasonably priced white wines, and we chose a young (2008) pinot grigio that was perfect.

I ate a buccatini carbonara and then a cuttlefish stew with octopus and a sublime polenta (creamy and viscous, like grits or runy mashed potatoes, not rubbery and solid like in the states).

Sasha had a nice greek salad followed by a spinach tagliatelle with eggplant and shrimp. Her pasta was so delicate and smooth. It needed a bit of salt, but then came alive with a soft flavor of the shrimp that permeated the smooth texture of the paste. It was delicate and delicious.
