Do you twirl your pasta or eat it like Chinese noodles? When they say to cook pasta 'el dente', they really mean it. That's the big difference I found between the pasta served in Italy and outside of Italy.
Pizzaria Al Vechio Canton is where the gondoliers eat, away from the crowded, over-priced and tourists-filled San Marco Square. Super yummy spaghetti vongole (10 euros) and pizza brescola (also 10 euros), 1 large beer (4 euros) and 2 euros each cover charge.
The Rialto Bridge is to Venice as the Colosseum is to Rome but unfortunately we never got to see it as we didn't have the time. Bummer.
