Amazing food!

Food was great. Nice delicious dishes with simple ingredients but so tasty. It's essential that you make a booking, as the place is tiny and gets booked up very fast. I'd definitely recommend going there and try the Spaghetti alle vongole!

We had stuffed our face full of ciccheti's in the afternoon that we really weren't hungry for dinner until late and at that point, were wandering around looking for anything. We stumbled upon this place (on our 2nd night in Italy) and boy, was it one of the best meals we had on our 14 day trip. The place is... More

You thought you just drop by for a quick aperitif and maybe a small snack and found yourself spending the whole evening here without being able to grab a table, but balancing one plate of wonderfully prepared cicchetti after the other on your lap and putting your glass of the excellent open house wine in any free space you could...

We stood at the bar, drinking Ombres of wine, eating Polpette and polpo. My daughter (7) probably had 3 polpette herself! Delicious!

Was recommended by our AirBnb host. Great little restaurant tucked away in the canareggio district. We showed up with no reservation and place was packed but they found a nice table for us in the back patio area. Waiter spoke great English and we simply asked him to recommend our meal. He did a great job of selecting local foods... More

Another recommendation from Andrea. There was confusion with our reservation, but they found room for us anyway. The cod puree on polenta was mild but flavorful. My wife was very enthusiastic about her pasta with shrimp, and the pasta with squid ink was a new and enjoyable taste. The desert of biscuits dipped in sweet wine was surprisingly good, as... More

Please do not discouraged by the dark inhospitable interior - this restaurant is really worth a visit. Everything we have tasted was delicious!

Waiters curse about you to their colleagues and it is a pretentious rat hole. Service abysmal by Italian standards. Famous for meatballs and seems like they only want to serve them to locals. Our meals were poor. Pick another restaurant - there are so many!

Terrible. Woeful. Words cannot express how terrible the food here is. We spent almost two weeks in Italy and this was by far the worst place we ate. We ordered: Meatballs Scampi pasta Spaghetti vongole Only the spaghetti vongole wasn't salted to death but the other two dishes were almost inedible. We were wrapping the meatballs up in bread and...

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
Cannaregio
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighborhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
