If you are willing to try local dishes from local people you got to the right place. Staff is willing but be prepared to savor dishes you do not know exactly whats in it. The waiters do not speak English well enough and there is no English menu. Prices are touristic, and the house wine too. Though, if you just... More

While other osterie in this street remained empty, there were at least a dozen people waiting to get into this place as we left after a wonderful seafood meal. The restaurant was busy and friendly and the food excellent and fairly priced. It's easy to get bad food in Venice, not so easy to find something this good. We had... More

I was reluctant to dine here as it was almost too close to our hotel for our second night here. However, the reviews convinced me to give it a go despite not having booked, but it was only 7pm so thought we might get lucky. Some people ahead of us on the street seemed put off by the small crowd... More

This little osteria is tucked way down a side street parallel with Strada Nova. I've tried several items on the menu over four visits and the quality is always good. Since it is always based on fresh local and regional ingredients, the menu is not as extensive as some places, but it is varied enough to suit most tastes. I... More

We picked this place for dinner based on the reviews on Tripadvisor and the fact that it seemed to be a local place. We had reservations made by our hotel—a must—and met some friends who were also travelling to Venice from the USA. The staff was very friendly and had no issues with us needing help with ordering from the... More

While the food, wine and ambience here were all good....what sets this place apart is the lovely multi-lingual service (something of a rarity on our trip to venice....admittedly our italian is terrible). For around EU90 we had 4 glasses of wine and entree, mains and dessert for 2 people. None of the dishes blew us away but all were tasty,... More

This is a charming little restaurant with beautiful food and excellent service by young and enthusiastic and very kind multi lingual staff. I was lucky to book a table on my last night in Venice, after finding them completely booked the 5 previous evenings. Could have easily eaten dinner here every night and never tired of the creative and delicious... More

We loved the feel and look of this place immediately-- it's cozy with its low ceilings and warm decor, clearly has a long history of success, has a daily menu that is ONLY in Italian. Extremely crowded both for dining and drinks. We only got a seat because we went for dinner so early. Reservations recommended. Very popular spot among... 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.
