Solid and reliable

The Fiaschetteria Toscana clearly caters for the well healed tourist looking for authentic and somewhat traditional Italian food. This is not to denigrate the establishment, but do not book a table if you are on a tight budget. So for your money you get attentive waiters, a good wine list and a... read more

We had two dinners in this really cute, family-operated restaurant just East of the Grand Canal near Rialto Bridge. The cuisine of course specializes in pasta and seafood and takes full advantage of the freshness of ingredients coming from the Rialto Market across the bridge. But the staff and the family are the charm of the place, beginning with the... More

A lovely place, comfortable. We had a nice table in the front but, as the evening wore on we discovered they were putting no one but Americans in that section. The tables on either side of us were Techies from the U. S., and they sounded like poor imitations of their stereotypes. All Italians on the other side. Maybe I... More

A party of 5 of us from various countries took the recommendation of several local people to spend a relaxed evening with delicious shrimp and polenta, prosecco, and samplers of local specialties. By the time we finished we had tasted close to a dozen specialties each. Our waiter regaled us in each of the languages we spoke and had three... More

First of all i should tell about service. The waiter gave us full recommendation and explain the reason to order proposed dishes. He was very professional. We follow for recommendation and ordered masanette ( made of local crabs) and no regrets. The main dish was scampi also was perfect. To finalize the lunch grappa and coffe from Jamaica special grains.... More

We have dined here several times over the past decade, and the food is always wonderful. Although the menu offers non-fish dishes, you're in Venice, so stick with the local stuff. Preparation is simple, designed to bring out the flavor of the main ingredient. Our party of four enjoyed two types of scallops, tiny shrimp, and three types of fish,... More

We were a group of 6 that went last week. We were seated promptly as we eat at 7pm. We asked for the house wine which we had been drinking all over Italy and were told that when you eat at their restaurant there is only bottles served (at more than twice the price). Everyone ordered fish but I had... More

We returned here for lunch after three years and the experience was living up to the previous great standards. Again, we had an excellent time in a tranquil oasis with nice food and great wine on the menu. Also, the wines are absolutely not overpriced. Obviously, for the food, quality does not come cheap, but for those who don't mind... More

Quite a disappointing experience. Walking back from long day of touring and just finishing dinner, I stopped by Fiaschetteria Toscana for after-dinner drinks and dessert. We were greeted by a sweet lady at the front, advised her that we were looking for drinks and dessert, and she showed us the menu. We were then seated, and greeted by a nice... 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.
