Unbeatable location, reasonable prices. LASAGNA a must.

My boyfriend and I ate dinner here on our first night in Venice. Paul (the usher) really brought the place to life, with his classic italian charm. We got a table right on the water (get there early-ish to grab one, 6pm is safe) and we ordred the beef lasagna and gnocci ham & zucchini. The lasagna... read more

We ate here twice, mainly because of the location and the ambiance it provided. You are seated on a decked area on the edge of the Grand Canal and it is a lovely place to eat (apart from when people start smoking on the next table to you....but that's another story!) The staff are good, friendly and attentive and the... More

Had dinner here last night before getting on our cruise. We had a table on the terrace overlooking the canal - great views We met the owner who was really hospitable particulary when considering how busy it was. I agree with a previous comment that the antipasti probably needed better decoration. However the pasta was beautiful and you could tel... More

Clean,airy Trattoria just along the street from the Railway station. Food and service are excellent, and with the choice of air conditioning inside or outside on the Grand Canal you can choose the right experience for you. Not sure how busy and noisy it would be in the evening, but for lunch it was a great escape to cool down.... More

My husband and I were taken by the idea of eating dinner on the Poveledos outside terrace (which is on the canal) for our final meal in Venice. The owner convinced us outside and in we went. Unfortunately the outside terrace is all this restaurant has really got going for it really. Food was mediocre and overpriced. My husbands antipasto... More

We arrived at 6.30pm and got a table outside by the canal, perfect view! We weren't rushed at all to order, it was great to take in the view and atmosphere. My husband is a coeliac and (even though I had researched prior) I double checked re the gluten free options and they were accommodating. He had spaghetti gluten free,... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and we made dinner reservations. We were seated on the canal terrace immediately. Evidently, a very large group arrived and they thought it better to relocate us to another table. Appreciated that. We had a nice table along the canal. Service was excellent. Food was the mixed bag. A liter of house wine for 14... More

Food served at location isn't authentic Italian, but we were starving and had to catch the train back to Rome in one hour. The food was served hot and it was tasty, but we desired more. The ravioli were pretty decent but the spaghetti alla bolognese was not so good. Staff were courteous and attentive, but we have had better... More

This restaurant was just across the street from our hotel and from the outside looked like a small nondescript place. I walked bye in the afternoon and inquired if I come in and look at the restaurant. I had no idea it was the owner of the restaurant who welcomed me in and showed me around his establishment.

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.
