Serena Williams made it to the finals at Wimbledon, but if there was some sort of best husband contest, Alexis Ohanian would certainly win!

The Reddit co-founder inspired some serious romance goals over the weekend when he flew his pro athlete wife to Italy – all because she was in the mood for some Italian food.

Ohanian took to Instagram to share some sweet shots of Williams, 36, writing: “She wanted Italian for dinner so…”

In one photo, the 35-year-old tech guru is grinning at his wife as she downs a glass of wine in Venice, Italy. Ohanian also shared a pic of Williams walking around the floating city, writing: “Last night was a blur.”

On Sunday, Ohanian was at it again, posting a beautiful shot of the city, writing: “Venezia made a great first impression on the family. We’ll certainly be back. But there’s work to be done…”

Williams also shared a video from her recent trip abroad. “Loving family time in beautiful Italy," she gushed on Instagram. What an insane room I stayed in. I got to look at stars from my bed at night!! This week has been a dream!”

Italy holds a special place for the couple. Ohanian popped the question to Williams on a romantic trip to Rome in 2016.

The pro tennis player is fresh off a triumphant return to Wimbledon earlier this month, and her pal, Meghan Markle, was there to cheer her on in the finals. Here's a look at their "wonderful friendship":
