A wonderful welcome and friendly service throughout. My husband really enjoyed his food but portion small. My food was tasty but cold, again small portion. We only ordered one course as we feel the food does not justify the price. perhaps a bit of a tourist trap.

Nothing particularly wrong here: service and wine, food ok, but only ok. Possibly spoiled by their position and endless supplies of once only visitors. If you look a little further, a few paces north, there's somewhere locals use with much better food and atmosphere.

Only 3 tables occupied in the restaurant but the waiter couldn't offer a table for 2 adults and our 4 year old daughter. He said "I have a businnes to run", we left without eating. very disappointed.

We came in here to escape the cold and chose this place because it looked so cozy. It is like an old wooden tavern from 300+ years ago and the vegetable soup was very good. The server was great and my husband's cuttlefish pasta was excellent.

My husband and I stopped here on our last meal of our trip simply because they had a sign that said Fresh Pasta. They did not disappoint!!! We both loved our meals. My ravioli was just the way to end our trip. The only upsetting part was that I found it on the last night and could only enjoy 1... More

We had lunch here before taking the train out of Venice. It is an attractive restaurant outside and in. Food was good and the menu is extensive. It is a little touristy but no more than most places in Venice. What set this place apart for me was the service was probably the most friendly we experienced in Italy. Recommended... More

Not enough food in my opinion and didn't think it was as good as I was expecting. I would rather eat at the food stands personally.

Lovely little trattoria, with helpful staff, nice atmosphere and reasonable prices, make this hard to beat. The house wine was delicious, the shrimp with pasta equally so. Speaking A little Italian helped

A very welcoming and warm place with basic, well done Venetian fare. The waiter pointed us to a modestly priced Chianti to go with our pasta and he checked in often to make sure we were enjoying the food. The food was fresh and well prepared. Good value for price

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.
