Love it!

We waited before the door was opened. We tried to call to make reservation but noone bothered to answer as they were already fully booked (we found out later). You can enjoy some tapas while served variety of drinks (but most of them seemed to order pruscetto anyway). And, don't miss on trying the... read more

Wonderful place for a walking venice cicchetti. We walked in, grabbed a spot at the bar, had some ombra rossa and left to move on to the next place. We tried various things, all were delicious. No idea what any of them were called but thats part of the fun! A must have on the list of places to do... More

The place always fully booked and locals are there to enjoy nice chats and zipping wine. Then, the food are very very very good. Must eat the meatball. You gotta have more than just 1! Otherwise, you'll regret the next day because you won't find anywhere else as good a meatball as it is here. Reservation is a must. But,... More

You can enjoy some tapas while served variety of drinks (but most of them seemed to order pruscetto anyway). And, don't miss on trying the pulpetes (fried meatballs) they are amazing!

that we minded being shown to a table to share and dine with two strangers, who were actually very sociable (fortunate to speak our language), but other comments on Trip Adviser were accurate. Not only is the waiter miserable, despite going out of my way to force a smile or courteous hospitality out of him, but the owner and business... More

We ate in several Cannaregio restaurants over the course of a long Carnivale weekend and we loved them all for different reasons! Alla Vedova stood out for the incredibly buzzy atmosphere! Booking for an evening meal is essential - we tried to get a table on the Friday evening but not a chance so we booked for Saturday. It was... More

On stepping inside this place I thought 'wow' - lovely old style place, very busy with people milling around eating polpette and drinking from teeny tiny wine glasses. The waiters, all handsome dark haired bearded types, somehow keeping up with what everyone was drinking and topping up glasses from huge metal jugs. I thought at first we had walked into... More

This is a famous bacari serving the best polpette and other cicheti in Venice and used by both locals and visitors. There are also tables for a sit down meal. We went twice and had excellent pasta with seafood, fish and seppia in ink with white polenta. Very yummy food at an excellent price.

If you believe that you have not been in venuce without having been treated rudely and getting overcharged for a small portion of some relatively tasteless dish, then come here. The waiters prefer not to serve you and probably laugh at us tourists in the kitchen. Give it a miss.

In a city where sides of fresh vegetables seem harder to find than, well... they're just hard to find. Anyway, come here for the perfect meatball - crispy on the outside and rare and delicious inside. A few meat balls and a side of fresh vegetables was the perfect lunch with wine. We always came around 1pm, and the service... More

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.
