Looking for something a little different and close to our hotel, we nipped in to the Mirai, expecting the menu to have mortgage-requiring prices attached to it. Instead, we found a good, varied menu that was very reasonably priced. My wife is not keen on sushi or sashimi; for her, there were plenty of other options, with her choice being... More

I'm a Japanese food lover and I have tried Japanese food in Asia, Oceania, North America, South America, Africa and Europe, therefore I have eaten enough sushi and sashimi during my life and I highly recommend Mirai for whom may be in Venice and is addicted to Japanese food like me. My main orders at Mirai: - Desiderio (delicious combination... More

We had dinner at this restaurant, which is located in the hotel we are staying. The Hotel Principe, Venice, Italy. The servers are excellent, the atmosphere, excellent, the food, excellent and the prices were excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone in Venice looking for great Japanese cuisine .

Fish is always fresh in Venice. Mirai, which moved from their previous kind of weird entrance location have good sushi but way overprice if you know what they pay for fish at the close by market. Nevertheless a good option if you run tire of eating italian in a city with just a handful options for other type of food.

Having eaten here over 35 times, I feel I can review this place better than the recent negative review, thats only complaints were a bit of a mystery to the readers....Too MUCH Tuna on the salad? That is good value, not something to complain about, and as far as price is concerned , the priced in the most difficult city... More

From San Marco area had to catch water bus 5.2 for Ferrovia (where train station is). Walking could be tricky. We were looking for an alternative to Italian, and read about Mirai. Our spicy tuna salad and white fish antipasti dishes were way too overwhelming with the amount of fish relative to salad/sides. We could only eat half of each... More

One of the best Japanese restaurants we have ever been to - we went twice in four nights! The first time we had the 10 course degustation menu. It was sublime. First course was a combo of dishes that were instrincally Japan but with an Italian twist. White fish sashimied with a sesame dressing and a "salad" of salmon and... More

We have sushi-loving kids who were dying for sashimi and rolls, so we made the 1.8 Km trek to Mirai to check it out. Nice, modern interior, with hushed lighting. Decent menu repertoire. Fish was fresh and good, albeit with some unwanted connective tissue (my maguro). Tempura only average, but a side green salad was surprise hit with chunks of... More

We heard that the Venetians we supposedly very excited about this place but only tourists were there and everyone seemed bored. The sushi was fresh but nothing special. Adequate, nothing 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.
