Ok food, excellent service!

We had lunch here on a Saturday so it was a little busy since its in a highly trafficked area. I had spaghetti with pesto, my husband had the carbonara, and our daughter had pizza and a salad. The food was just ok, typical for Venice. Our waiter was amazing! He was so friendly and attentive, he... read more

This restaurant was a low point on an otherwise wonderful trip to Venice. Immediately after sitting down the waiter started recommending the most expensive wine and meals on the plate while encouraging us to avoid the 13 euro special because it "was only good for lunch". If you're not careful they quickly bring plates of bread, appetizers, etc, all of... More

Seafood menu is pretty good. Fritti calamari works better. The price is not so cheap and location is in a quite crowded area.

Food with normal quality. Good ambience in the dinning room. The servants are not very polite, so I would rate the overhall experience as a bit pricy. They charge 2,5 € per person for cover charge, without serving a single slice of bread!

Our group of six came here for dinner our first night in Venice and we are so glad we did! The staff were wonderfully friendly and our waiter particularly funny! The food was really good - we had pasta, pizza, lasagne, seafood and beef. The prices are reasonable and the service great! We did not have a negative experience at... More

I really wish I'd read the overwhelmingly negative Trip Advisor reviews before coming here, but I was hungry and too tired to walk too far from the central train station and this seemed like an easy option I made the mistake of ordering the Euro 12 set menu. I suppose it would be naive to assume that the food would... More

We came here without reading the reviews and I am glad we did. The kids had a gf pizza which they said was great. We had the 12 euro meal deal. The salmon pasta was excellent as was the clam pasta for starters. The main course was nice but a little less inspired than the starters. The wine and beer... More

We arrived late on our first night in Venice and our hotel was a few doors away so we decided to call into the restaurant. Service was great and welcoming. We ordered our starters and I kid you not, my husband must have had 8 different fish on his plate and I had a variety of cold meats which were... More

We were here in May 2013 and so going back was a renewal of friendships with the boss and his staff - The venue was great with good food, great beers and fine wine. We enjoyed our meals on at least 3 occasions there. Cannot be beaten.

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.
