Trattoria Ca D'Oro - Venice, Italy

Calle del Pistor, Cannareggio, Venice
(across Strada Nova from the Ca' d'Oro stop)
(Closed on Thursdays, no lunch on Sundays).

We heard this trattoria was popular for its meatballs. Ca D'Oro is not on the main road, but tucked in a corner alley in the Cannareggio area. We kept on walking back and forth, and it took us almost an hour finding this hidden place. If you're near the McDonald's, you're quite close. And as for most restaurants in Italy, Ca D'Oro doesn't open until 7:30pm.

We ordered a carafe of the house wine (which was the same price as the water - agua naturale) and 3 meatballs (polpette) at 1.50 each. The meatballs had a bit of a spicy kick to it and was very moist. You can get these tasty meatballs at the counter too along with the other local appetizers with a glass of wine and mingle with other people.
Then, we ordered an excellent spaghetti with prawns and basil. Simple yet so tasty.
As we headed out, there were a dozen of people at the bar, either enjoying the cichèti (small plates) or waiting for a table while drinking wine. There is also a cover charge of 2 € per person. Make reservations and bring cash.

Things To Do On Cape Cod said...

My family and I really needed a time out from our work and a friend suggested we go to Cape Cod. When we arrived on Cape Cod, I was surprised that it was a serene place, but there were a lot of fun things to do on Cape Cod! We went sailing in Hyannis Harbor on a sailboat and then we went to Provincetown to watch whales do their thing. The experience was just plain awesome, we all feel energized when we got back to our house.
