Giacomo Rizzo, Venice

Giacomo Rizzo, Venice

Pasta is (who does not know) the most popular food in Italy. There are dozens of shapes and sizes of it: Lasagna, Penne, Spaghetti, Tortellini and, and and... Pasta is so famous and popular in Italy that, by the way, in Rome you can visit a pasta-museum. In Venice, there is a shop whose owner and his family have been in the pasta business, producing pasta by hand for over one hundred years. There you can even buy colored pasta. Green or red because the dough is mixed with spinach or tomatoes. But the highlight in this shop is pasta shaped into the form of a gondola. A venetian masterpiece.

The shop's name is: "Giacomo Rizzo", and the address is Salizzada di San Giovanni Crisostomo, Cannaregio 5778. It is situated in one of the most beautiful parts of Venice – where you have the opportunity to do some very nice shopping. The pasta shop "Giacomo Rizo" is opened daily from 10 up to 18.30 (except Sundays). The price range is from about 2 EU up to 8 EU, depending on what kind of pasta you like.
