We were paired with a Venetian couple in their home and an translator tagged along to help with the language barrier. This was the highlight of my time in Venice. Irene was communicative and served as the liaison between the family and myself. The meal was wonderful and they accommodated allergies if one was issue. The host was so kind, funny and loved sharing their culture with us! I would highly recommend to all visiting Venice.

Our host was Anna and she was awesome. Google maps took us to the wrong location, we sent a picture of where we were and she came and found us. She knew so much about the food and she was telling us what vegetables and fish were in season and she shared what her favorite dishes were. We were even able to assist her with making some homemade pasta. Anna made delicious food. She was so passionate about cooking and it showed. She was so friendly we left feeling like we had known her for years. I would highly recommend this experience and request Anna if possible!
