Top notch. We ordered from the $15 per person menu. Great value for the money. Our dishes were tasty and filling. Nicoletta, our singing waitress was delightful and efficient.

Seeing the good reviews and wanting to eat somewhere close to our accommodation we chose to eat here at 7pm mid week. When we arrived we were the only ones there and we were quickly seated and given a menu. We ordered spaghetti carbonara and bolognese for starters and fillet steak for main ( we were not asked how we... More

so many restaurants - but this one was a gem - great food, lovely wine, nice service, good prices. We called ahead - a general suggestion in Venice, it's just easier - there was a table free by the time we walked from our hotel 15min away. Easy going, nothing super fancy, just good food and a nice night out.

We ate at Trattoria da GiGio in April 2015 on a Wednesday night. Like a previous reviewer's experience, it was clearly a popular choice as fairly crowded, even at 10pm. However, we were left somewhat disappointed. Firstly, we waited several minutes to be seated and even longer for our orders to be taken. Herein lies our biggest grievance with Trattoria... More

Stopped in for a late dinner and wanted something light. I chose this place because of the great reviews and they had a full house at 10 pm...always a good sign. I ordered gnocchi and roast chicken and my daughter the ravioli and a steak. The pasta dishes were passable but not great and the chicken and steak were simply... More

Such a great experience. Menu only in Italian which I liked but the service staff was more than helpful with any questions. 1 liter or house wine is the way to go and great variety of menu options for food. Smaller front part of the resturant twitch a larger area in the back for larger parties. Maybe 40 seats total.... More

We went to dinner here last night as a couple, on our second night out in Venice and were pleasantly surprised. The restaurant staff seated us at the back which is alot more spacious than the front and it seemed as though it was mainly locals around us. We were just looking for a simple tasty Italian meal and that... More

This was our favorite restaurant in Venice. I recommend sitting in the back. We were surrounded by locals (which was a sign of its authenticity) so if you like that, which we do, it is the place to go. Staff was very friendly and allowed us to have as much time as we wanted. Large portions and resonably priced. We... More

I agree with all the positive reviews. A great place to eat, either for lunch or dinner but best to book beforehand. We will certainly eat here again when next visiting this wonderfuly city. Enjoy Brian - Home Exchange 50plus

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.
