Italy: 50th anniversary celebration at Cangrande in Verona

In a street behind the square by the Arena, is a tiny restaurant, which has done well on Tripadvisor. It is called Cangrande, has lovely food and a very nice staff.

We decided to have our 50th dinner there. It was a fantastic dining experience, with snails as an appetizer. Then a tasty pasta dish.

The pork kayaks were cooked in Amarone and were probably the highlight of the evening for me. They were so tender that they could be eaten with a spoon, if you will.

Even though we were full, we eventually took a chocolate dessert. It was so good that we just had to eat it whole.

They had the funniest Grappa carafe I have ever seen and it can not be easy to pour without spilling.

If you are going to Verona, I would really recommend this place, but remember to book a table.
