The famous lobster linguine or spaghetti (depends on the night) at Osteria al Mascaron in Castello. One of the best plates you’ll ever have, bar none. A magical seafood flavor we love to pair with a Lugana.
Really enjoyed this the other night, paired with some Talenti gelato and some The Americans reruns. It was more acidic than I expected, but the color was that spot-on garnet rust that you want from a nebbiolo and while the finish was short, it had that flinty minerality that just reminds you of the wine you get in Italy that’s hard to find here in the States.
It seemed a fancier version of the table red you get at one of my favorite spots in Venice (al Mascaron) with your lobster spaghetti. If you’re looking for something that just “tastes like Italy” in a very legit-but-off-the-beaten-path way (and if you’re reading this, I know you are), an excellent choice indeed.
