When Granny is relaxing on the gondola and says, "This is so cacciatore" she obviously don't know what she's saying. "Cacciatore" is the Italian word for "hunter" (what she says may be a reference to chicken cacciatore, which means chicken prepared hunter-style, i.e. like a field-cooked meal with local herbs and vegetables).

When Granny and Tweety take a visit to Venice, Italy, they come to see the sights and history. Tweety gets left on the balcony where he is spotted by Sylvester from the opposite balcony - however getting across the watery divide is easier said than done.
I'm not a big fan of Tweety Pie cartoons mainly because I find Tweety a little irritating at times. Here though the material is actually quite funny even if lots of it you will have seen all of it before in other shorts. Familiarity didn't breed contempt in this case for me and I laughed out loud quite a few times at some of the antics.
The Italian setting was only really used to create a stretch of water to be an obstacle - much like was done with the sea in another cartoon, however Sylvester is given a mock Italian accent, which happily isn't used very much due to having a low amount of dialogue. Tweety is quite good but it is Sylvester's antics that get the laughs.
Overall this is a pretty amusing short that uses the water well even if it all feels very familiar at times. It is funny in it's own right and manages to overcome the horrid accent that is shoved onto Sylvester.
