hidden place in the heart of Venice

This is not a place you can find on a crowded street. You need to search for it. But you won't regret it. The place is not too big but is comfortable and clean.

Finding a good restaurant in Venice can prove very difficult. The city is well known for its long array of tourist traps and establishments serving food of very dubious standards. That's why I was happy when some friends suggested to try this place for a quick lunch in the City of bridges. True to Venice, the restaurant is very small... More

We were put onto this place by our BnB host. Brilliant little place with either stand up tapas option or sit down meal. Book ahead for the sit down meal though as it gets busy and is small. You won't be disappointed. Food was fantastic. We had the meatballs as a starter and spaghetti with shrimp for mains. Beautifully fresh... More

If you expect a meatball to look like Chef Boyardi made it, this is not your place. These delicacies are ordered one by one and they look more like rice balls on the plate. But they are light, they go down like butter and we returned to this restaurant a second time to try them again. There is a rich... More

atmospheric spot, quick service, delicious typical Venetian food. Meatballs and baccala mantecata were great, as were the pastas. Loved it.

Walking in it's clear that there are many tales left behind in this quaintly old-fashioned restaurant. It was heaving as we were ushered to a table occupied by another family. Fantastic, friendly, efficient service. Go for all forms of polpette, meatballs, and spaghetti. No coffee - quirky. One of our preferred places on this tour.

The same family have run this trattoria near the Rialto market in Venice since the late 1800s - and it shows. Great food, superb atmosphere and, surprisingly for Venice, prices are affordable. The meat balls are famous but for us it was the seafood pasta. Delicious!

This restaurant has great venetian food at great reasonable prices and the atmosphere is warm and friendly. Be prepared to book ahead though. The meat balls are the best I've ever eaten.

We went here for lunch bc we were hungry and the place we wanted to go was full. We ordered a pizza to share and a salad. They were fine. The waiter was really annoyed we ordered so little. I sort-of understand, but not everyone can eat a 3 course meal every time they sit down. Actually, I hated the... More

So we reserved a table for two. Got there. Waited a couple of minutes to be seated at a table. After which we just waited... And waited... And waited. No menu, ignored and completely disregarded for a full 20minutes. Tables were constantly bring served around us. So, we literally just stood up and left. No one even asked us anything... 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.
