Just restating for any who are interested in a get-together: Contact me March 20-28 at my Hotel Al Ponte Mocenigo (S. Croce 2063, near San Stae; 041.5244797) or at my email (my Fodors name at hot mail).

Dinner at La Zucca? I hate you all

We'll be in Venice in May, I just can't wait. Have fun, all of you, and leave some gelato for me!

elnap- An eggplant mousse that was like butter! Incredible, with a tomato cream sauce. Fresh mound of spinach with shaved pecorino on top and then baked. OMG! Tagliatelle with artichoke and die for. Panna cotta that melted in your mouth, drizzled with fresh strawberry coulee.

It was ALL good. mmmm And VERY reasonably priced.

Pics soon!

Sigh! I'm so sad I missed that.

I still feel unwell. Do I need more, or fewer spritz??

Just checking in to affirm: Yes, it was fun to meet other Fodorites from across the U.S. and share travel stories as well as a love for Venice.

I had a pumpkin flan and roast duck leg with Calvados sauce and sauteed green apples. More details to follow in the full trip report.

I depart for Florence in a few hours and will probably be offline until it's time to create the full trip report. Ciao!
