Wonderful Foodie Tour

We had a fabulous tour with lots ( and I mean LOTS!) of yummy food stops.
Nico was a brilliant host/guide, very informative with the history of the area and importantly avoiding the tourist traps! We enjoyed every minute and even visited other recommendations days later which were excellent.
We totally recommend and can't wait to visit Venice and the food spots were we ate again soon! Thank you Nico!
A great way to start our Venice visit!

We are just coming to the end of a wonderful stay in Venice and connecting with Nico was the one of the best things we’ve done. The day after our arrival, we spent a wonderful warm late summer evening with him walking through town, learning the history and food culture of Venice. We ate fantastic ciccheti, drank traditional aperitif and wine, and learned how and where to eat. We moved effortlessly from restaurant to restaurant, tasting new foods at each stop. Nico is very knowable and shares his knowledge freely. We ended the evening with gelato – and restaurant recommendations for the rest of our stay. His recommendations are gold! Great fun and fantastic food. Thank you Nico!!
First rate food tour. A highlight!

Fantastic all around food tour. Tried the local Select special spritz and little bites to start, 5 tastes, all top notch, then some first fermentation Prosecco to go with excellent octopus on polenta, some just made risotto, and off to try mozzarella in carroza with locally brined anchovies. Finished with pasta, in our case we went with black ink squid. We finished with good, real gelato. Can’t recommend Nico enough!
Food and drink in style
