So after going over several bridges, staying straight and making a few lefts, we managed to accidentally find Da Rioba and it was worth all the drama. Here is what we ate:
This was the "Ravioli of the Day". It was delicious.
SECONDI PIATTIWe were a little over pasta--we never thought this was possible--so we decided to go with the land and sea options.
Goodness, this was so good and fresh. It was so refreshing to eat something from the sea.
Initially I was very confused about this "local" lamb since I hadn't seen a single blade of grass in Venice during my four days there but I was assured there is a mainland which has plenty of lamb and other animals.
Regardless of where the lamb actually came from, it was phenomenal! I ate every single piece down to the bone--no shame.
We were really excited about this selection on the menu because we thought it might be like the awesome almond cake we got in Montreal. Unfortunately it wasn't the $250 Almond Cake but it was still very good.

I am glad we stumbled upon Ostaria da Rioba on our last night in Venice. Venice has been very good to us. Every meal was quite enjoyable. We will definitely come back.
