Great food..bad service

This was the restaurant we were looking forward to for our grand goodbye to Italy after traveling the country. The food lived up to its reputation...absolutely wonderful and unlike any other restaurant we visited. Unfortunately, the young, talented servers forgot about kindness. Great food only... read more

This was the restaurant we were looking forward to for our grand goodbye to Italy after traveling the country.

Great food only goes so far, being ignored and lacking drinks, etc. add to the experience. So, for... More

I booked a reservation a month before arriving in Venice as it was highly recommended by a food blogger. However, our timing was off the evening of our reservation and we had a difficult time making our way to Stellaro. We did not have access to wifi therefore could not write or call. When I finally made it back to... More

We stumbled upon this little place when looking for somewhere to eat in Cannaregio and this did not disappoint! The ones I initially chose for the first and second plate were all gone by the time I ordered so I went for the seafood in Busari style pasta, which was absolutely divine, seriously amazing! the second plate was a lovely...

This was a perfect dinner in a perfect location. The restaurant is ( thank God ) far from the crowds of St Mark square and it is totally worth the extra 15 minutes walk to get there. The food was amazing and the " house " prosecco was delightful. Sometimes service gets a little " slow " but who cares... More

Great atmosphere, food and service. Modern take of Italian food. Inside and outside dining. No air con for those that really feel the heat but it didn't bother us. We have been here a few times during our stay in Venice. Definitely in our top 5 of places to have lunch in Venice. Good value. Nice people. On a quiet... More

We made a reservation at this restaurant at the recommendation of our 13-year-old daughter's friend -- "when I was in Venice, my grandparents and I went to Anice Stellato for dinner and it was really good so you should go there" -- and had no idea what to expect. We arrived as a sudden storm approached, so the staff hastily... More

A nice restaurant near the canal in a quiet part of Venice. The food was extremely tasty, I had the sea bass which was served with ratatouille with a slightly tangy edge and was really good. Slightly disappointed they didn't have the any cheese despite it being on the menu. Recommend booking ahead, as we weren't able to get a... More

We arrived without a reservation and were shown straight to a table. Food was great, service was good until we tried to get the bill! The grilled octopus was great as was the veal liver. Try and get a table outside as inside is HOT!

Amazing local Venetian food and superb desserts. Great service. Don't forget to reserve a table in advance or you won't get a place.

Anice is a true gem! It is the type of restaurant you always hope to find, but rarely do. It has a beautiful setting along the canal and a small, cozy inside dining area. Unfortunately, the night we went there, a storm was brewing over Venice, and we were forced to move inside. Our waitress, who was extremely pleasant and... 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.
