a place , for friends or families ,where the only mission is a good pizza. The owner Filippo is polite and runs very well the restaurant. No frippery, not a cool experience , but a place where you can go every time you need a good pizza, year after year. In such a town honesty is a good value, at... More

After finding this place highly recommended on another site we decided to check it out, with it being a walkable distance from our hotel. Using a map given by our hotel it was easy enough to find and we were greeted warmly by the waiting staff. The restaurant was only half-full but everyone eating seemed to be enjoying their food,...

I was expecting so much of Venice in term of food and was so disappointed: cheap restaurants for tourists with very low quality products unless you are ready to spend a lot of money.... Since we were there for few days only I went through a lot of reviews to try to find a decent place for a decent price... More

La Perla was recommended by the concierge at our hotel. We are glad we found it. Very good pizza, good service, pleasant outdoor or indoor seating, and very reasonable prices. They also serve the best cappucino we had in Venice.

Only a short walk from our hotel but ignored until today. What a mistake - quite simply some of the best pizzas my wife and I have ever had. The locals populating the place (including six gondoliers) should give the game away. Very friendly service, perhaps a little slow to get started, but no worries after. 10% service charge is...

This place was only a stones throw from our hotel and frequented more by locals than tourists but was first class. The service was first class and the choices could not be faulted. The food was served piping hot and was excellent.

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
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.
