+Alex Shaw I remember a Dr Who series from my youth where it turned out that the standing stones were in fact silicon based life forms.  Now that was scary.

Exactly what Mrs C said to me when she heard the news. A genuine and adorably funny lady. Such a sad loss. That said, I can't even write this without smiling. She always made me smile 🙏🏼

Great place, open later, perfect for late night arrival in Venice. Serves food until 1am, not 2 am as per website. No jazz, at least not when we were there.......and an assortment of bras hanging from the ceiling!
