On our second night in Venezia we find an interesting restaurant called Rosa Rossa.
It looks relatively upmarket and the prices displayed seem quite reasonable so we decide to try our luck.
Inside the mood is more somber and sophisticated than our last experience at Al Vecio Marangon. Dark bricks lend a textural feel with a few tasteful Christmas decorations reminding us of the festive season.
We chose pennette mazancolle e primizie di stagione, tagliatelle alla bolognese, gnocchetti gratinati prosciutto di petto d’oca e zucchine, pizza diavola: pomodoro, mozzarella, salame piccante and an insalata mista.
Not surprisingly, Chianti has become our standard beverage after Rocca di Castagnoli.
But this time we finish with a decidedly French crème brûlée.
All the food is very good but with an unexpected 12% service surcharge and a final bill of €100, leaves me with a slightly disappointed taste in my mouth.
Next time I’ll stick to the more homely establishments that seem to offer much better value.
