lovely staff and restaurant but seemed if not italian you were put in the back room which did not have the buzz that the front area had. In so saying the food was well cooked if a little bland...but we found that throughout venice. we enjoyed it there and it was not too pricy.

It was nice to go far away from the crowds. It was also nice to finally see a restaurant where locals serve you.... The staff is very very nice. They deserve 5 stars. But my experience was not perfect. My wife's pasta was over salty and it could not be eaten. The fried fish was okish. A mistake was made... More

We had lunch here on Sunday the 10 May. It's away from the main touristy areas which we liked! The service was outstanding, all the staff was very friendly and explained the menu in great details, recommended the wines according to the meals. They even bought out a little cake with a candle as it was my husband's birthday! That... More

We were lucky to get a Saturday night walk in as they had just had a cancellation. Nice attentive service and a nice touch of giving a choice of three house reds and wines in quarter, half and full litres. We enjoyed our starters of mozzarella with fennel salad and grilled octopus with chickpea purée. Even better main courses of... More

Located in Cannaregio away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist routes this little restaurant serves thoughtfully prepared food: traditional with a twist. We had a variety of items off the menu with all being excellent. There are daily specials usually locally caught fish. Service can be slow but this does stop locals from thronging here. The local...

A friendly welcome and we were shown quickly to a table in the back of the restaurant. I think this meant that the staff forgot about us as the service was very slow! Despite this we enjoyed our meal at this popular restaurant. The place filled up shortly after we arrived and there was a pleasant, cosy atmosphere. Fish-based menu... More

I visited this restaurant on the basis that it was within spitting distance of my hotel and recommended by the rough guide. The staff were very accommodating and the food was exceptional - so good in fact that I did not even consider going elsewhere for the remainder of my stay (and would seek them out again as and when...

4 of us were staying at the Hotel Ai Mori d'Oriente 100m from this restaurant, and it was recommended by the hotel. We went on the Wednesday and had a great meal with very good local wines. The waiting staff knew their wines and were able to talk us through the options. This was great as I am not as... 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.
