Strongly Recommended!! Please do not miss this place.

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... read more

Every thing is fine form the antipasti to the Dolce. Especially the Spaghetti alle nero di seppie. Fishes were well cooked.

Very good home style Venetian cooking. The black spaghetti was special. Mostly local patrons, but staff treated tourists as well as locals. Hard to find in back alley, but worth the effort to find. Great experience.

We spent our third night at this restaurant. We had a good visit to venice and did some research on nice restaurants before we came. We had very good experiences on each night but this was by far the best. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was amazing. Not too touristy or fancy but very authentic. Exactly what a... More

This was a very good experience, kind staff and warm atmosphere. Had dinner with a party of 4, and if I visit here again I would go for any of the pasta dishes before the beef that was a bit poor. Great appetizer and "goodbye" drink on the house btw!

Food was great, staff fabulous in this tiny place that had its fair share of tourists but also locals, particularly at the bar. Think of your comfy neighborhood place at home and translate that into Venetian.

My wife and I had a memorable meal during our short stay in Venice. You can tell from the location and the locals who eat there that this place doesn't try to cater too hard to tourists. The food is very good and authentic and the servers are friendly if you treat them right. I started out with the scampi... More

We spent a bit of time searching for this osteria because the sign is no longer there and it was closed when we went at lunchtime. We popped in at 7pm to a very busy, bustling place but they managed to squeeze us in with a table for two hours. The waitress was very knowledgable and explained the Italian-only hand... 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.
