and a cappuccino
It was mentioned to me that Venice is not known for it's food the way so much of Italy has received great raves for it's delicious dishes, however, I found many a savory meal!

Dinners were something that were usually eaten later in the evening around 7, 8 or 9. It really just depends on what and how much you eat that day. Sometimes, one is just full no matter the location. When we did have dinner, I found the spaghetti to have that same fresh sauce as the pizza! I also had other pasta dishes, fish dishes, chicken dishes and was craving many a salad, or any vegetable! Ohhh, I missed my vegetables and was seeking them out with every dinner, especially since my days had a lot of little meals of coffees, treats, meats, salty foods, and sometimes dense meals, even though small in quantity.
Europeans are known for grazing throughout their days and not over indulging each meal until they are "stuffed". I felt good all day eating this way! I was concerned about eating these types of foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner and I was worried I put on "vacation weight", but since I was eating smaller meals throughout the day and walking everywhere there really was no chance of it adhering to my hips! Plus I found there was something about being in Italy that made me feel like there was more to life than food to fill my day, to occupy my time. It turns out it was just being busy and learning that made my days fly by!
