I stayed here 2 times, it has the style of a typical Osteria, is not big and has a warm atmosphere. The quality is very good, the wine is also good. prices are honest, around 30-40 euros each person. Recommended

Found this restaurant using Trip Advisor. It was just what we were looking for! A menu of fresh pasta and seafood that changes daily. We walked in on a Tuesday night. Service was great. Wines by the glass were the best selection I have seen in four meals in Italy! My pasta was homemade. My husband's fish was fresh and... More

We had several excellent meals here in 2014, the quality was superb and very good value for Venice. Looking forward to returning!

This was one of the best dinners that my boyfriend and I have ever had. Each course was a complete winner - not just okay or acceptable, not just one outstanding dish - each dish was perfect. That is very rare indeed. We came here twice in our 4 day stay in Venice and would have come again but we... More

It was our first night in Venice and we had booked this restaurant before we arrived. I am glad we started at least 30mins before our reservation as it took us at least that amount of time to walk there from St Mark's Square! However we were not disappointed. The restaurant is tiny but what it lacks in space it... More

Tucked away in a small alley, the food at this tiny place is really good. Menu changes everyday. Staff are friendly. It seems to always be busy, with locals at the bar and outside. We had lunch without a reservation . Very reasonable prices.

I didn't think that in this touristy city you can get a good meal, but this restaurant proved otherwise. Tucked on a small street, the restaurant is cozy and serves excellent food. The trilingual waiter was also very helpful. We shared a sampler appetizer, and everything on the plate was super delicious! My husband had pasta and I had Venetian... More

We shared a wonderful lunch at this little unassuming restaurant. The food was delicious, the wine very well priced and the service good. The chichetti also looked very very nice.

You will find a lot of people right in front of restaurant sipping wine while waiting. It means reservation is must here. Not a big and posh space at all, but you will love the food. Since it is Venice, seafood lover's paradise, you would be ready to order. The menu was all in Italian, no English. The servers are... 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.
