Seafood In Burano
We had been in Italy for 3 days and my poor hubby was yet to get his pizza fix. So after an epic meltdown over his lack of pizza ( yes that’s a legit medical condition), we decided to make today not only about seeing the islands of Murano and Burano but also ‘Finding the mother of all pizzas’.
After a choppy water taxi ride we reached Murano – the deep blue water, canals and the many many shops with intricate glass works in every hue and colour make it a beautifully whimsical place.
Next we hopped over to Burano – and stepped literally into a post card. Sunny cobbled streets lined with ristorantes serving fresh seafood, eye-catching technicolour buildings, shop fronts with Oh-so-pretty laces fluttering in the breeze and street musicians adding just the right amount of melody to the air. Even if you are not the lingering type – you still will.
We did and hungrily landed at Principe – a cozy ristorante and pizzeria by the canal hoping for a pizza miracle. What we got was a humongous ( we ordered large) white pizza with delicate seafood which was by far the best we had all tasted.
We also tried calamari and fried octopus with polenta, spaghetti with scampi, gnocchi with prawns, fried chicken , ham & rocket on bread and a ham &pineapple pizza – all with very Italian and traditional aperol spritz aperitifs.
The food was delicious and fresh and quite moderately charged with pane e coperto ( a bread and table cover charge per person irrespective of whether you eat the bread or not), just like most places in Italy. All this and we were in food coma but thanks heavens we found ‘THE PIZZA’.
