Just Amazing

Small location but absolutely lovely furnished. The food is just amazing, especially the Nero di Seppia and the Spiedini di Alici.

Hits: A sublime scampi appetizer! Amazing tiramisu! Great passion fruit semifreddo Misses: having to eat at 7 or 9:15 only. Being told we had to be done by 8:45 Collecting plates while others are still eating, made us feel rushed. The worst bread we had in a month Tough lamb chops, had better in many less expensive restaurants. Substituting the... More

Our hotel recommended the osteria and made a dinner reservation (need to reserve - it was completely full). We loved the walk to the Cannareggio district from our hotel near the Rialto bridge as it takes you a bit off the usual beaten track. The osteria is very nicely located next to a quiet canal. Interiour atmosphere is modern and... More

I have Michele, from Beatrice Murano, to thank for this wonderful discovery. He heard me complain about how hard it was to find a great restaurant in Venice, plagued by tourist traps and cheap fares ( quality wise, not in price). He recommended this marvelous little jewel, away from the beaten track, but well worth the detour. Lorenzo and Noemi... More

I don't review a lot on tripadvisor, but I wanted to put my 2 cents in. This place came highly recommended by our guesthouse owner, who is a proud local. Went with high expectations. Service was sufficient but noticeably worse than most every other restaurant we went to. My wife's food was good, but I ordered a mixed seafood dish... More

After looking long and hard through a sea of touristy restaurants, we stumbled upon this gem. We are staying about a 10-15 minute walk from this restaurant and found the walk to be absolutely beautiful, calm, and vibrant at the same time with a local scene as we passed by a few bars and restaurants on the way. The staff... More

This part of Venice is quiet but at the same time rich with local color and history - a truly Venetian part of Venice. The small restaurant looks more friendly than haute cuisine from the first glance, but the food is excellent, and the staff accommodating and knowledgable. The price is reasonable as well. Well worth a detour from the... More

Other trip advisor contributors and our very knowledgeable hotel staff are right, this is an excellent little restaurant. We ate a pasta dish and a dessert each, the flavours of both were incredible. Drinks were quite expensive in comparison with other similar osteria. It was very busy on a Wednesday evening in April and some potential clients were asked to... More

For several years I have been using this restaurant when in Venice and it reaches a consistently high standard. It is small, particularly when the weather is not good enough to have tables outside, so it is probably better to book (although they did seem to go to great trouble to fit in people who arrived without booking). The tables... More

We visited this restaurant on Saturday 28th March 2015. Although we hadn't made a booking, they were very accommodating in finding us a table. The staff were very helpful and attentive. The food was excellent . We would highly recommend this small but friendly restaurant .

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.
