We have a fish market close to home where we can buy incredibly fresh sea bass, but it is nothing like the fish that my wife and I shared. Andrea, our host, recommended this as a great local restaurant, and we could not have had a better meal. There was nothing fancy about the recipe, although the presentation was very... More

Reasonable prices for Venice standards. It is not cheap, but in the same range as the tourist traps.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant when we asked for something non-touristy. We stood at the bar and ate couchette (think Italian tapas) and loved it! The staff was very nice and the food was great. The whole restaurant was packed...we were lucky to get the space at the bar!

One of the best seafood restaurants in Venice, located away from the highly commercial districts. Try the grill whole fish and mixed seafood, just yummy! Not many tables available, so book before going.

This is a place you do not want the other people to know about. You would like to keep it for yourself. Why? Because you are in Venice, a city full of pizza - pasta places that carter for the requirements of the hordes of tourists. This place (and make no mistake there will be tourists like you and me,...

Had lunch at this place. Tuck in a nice corner from the main road. Has a nice outdoor sitting area behind the restaurant. Good delicious seafood pasta. Highly recommended.

I cannot judge the food because we left after 15 minutes to be waited on. We were seated right away with menus. However, nobody would ever come by to wait on us. So we just left. The place was not that busy, and for some reason we were forgotten.

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.
