Unpretentious but fanciful decor belie a serious attention to cooking and presenting great food!

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... read 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 .

Wonderful meal in a very relaxed 'downtown' atmosphere. The chef clearly knew the people next to us and he spent quite a bit of time socializing with them. We chatted with the people on the other side of our table as their beautiful pasta arrived. All the food was excellent. Wine as well. We had a delicious salad with artichokes... More

Nice little restaurant in a quiet part of the city. Not many tables, probably a good idea to make a reservation. Seemed popular with the locals. Food was fantastic, service was ok.

We found this restaurant on a lovely square not far from our hotel in Canneregio. The food was so good we had to go back a few days later. Away from the crowded touristy areas but worth your time to walk there. One of the highlights of our Venice trip.

Very good food and nice place to hang out. but i feel, as a tourist, that the prices are over exagerated. The supra mini quantities leave a feeling of a ripp off. I paid 25€ (without taxes) for 4 little lamb ribs and little spinach. Too expensive for such establishment.

We went for lunch, and the food was very good, but by no means better than we had elsewhere for a lower price. The service from the manager was in our view inconsistent and not up to the usual standards of Venice.

We spent 3 nights in Venice and tried three pretty decent restaurants. This was my favourite. Enjoyed a fantastic meal and wine over a couple of hours on a Saturday night. I had a pasta dish with tomato sauce and bacon to start, followed by the (highly recommend on TA) fried seafood and veg. It didn't disappoint, it was extremely... 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.
