My wife and I had dinner here tonight, Aug. 9, 2015. We had seafood risotto and fried calamari. The food was bland. After we added salt, hot sauce, and pizza peppers, it was pretty edible. We got there early about 6 PM, which is early for European dining. We felt like an inconvenience from the wait... read more

The restaurant is on the main Str. Nuova but our experience was poor. It was not busy and had plenty of waiters but the kitchen took over one hour to get the meal to us. Expected something wonderful because of the time it took but it was awful. Went for the speciality recommended by the waiter (mixed seafood) but I... More

There were mostly locals at the restaurant. Its not on a main thoroughfare and not in the touristy part of Venice. The food was excellent. They ran out of the pasta so the cook came out to apologize and offer another type that he would make especially for me. Since it took so long and they ran out of pasta... More

I was in Venice along with 6 more people for a one-day trip. We were looking for a meal and we picked this restaurant. The food itself wasn't that bad at all but it wasn't anything special. Lasagne and a tuna salad were pretty good. On the other side, I wasn't really satisfed with service. They seemed so lazy and... More

My family loved their pasta and pizza, and it was a great evening sitting outside watching people walk by, being serenaded by an accordion player and enjoying the atmosphere. I had the sea bass and did not enjoy it at all.

This was our first restaurant experience in Venice and we all loved it. The food was great. We all had different pasta dishes. Their specialty is fish but we didn't try it, so can't speak to that. We loved the atmosphere; very authentic Italian. It really felt like you were eating "mamma's" cooking.

My husband and I stopped here for lunch and enjoyed the view from a table by the water. We both ordered a pizza. I can't speak for anything else on the menu, but our pizzas were fantastic. I'm somewhat of a pizza snob, so I'm hard to please when it comes to mozzerrella quality, tomato seasoning, and bread. My pizza... More

After awhile we were a bit tired of pastas. We found this restaurant by chance and we love pork cutlets. They had it. It was spiced perfectly and melted in your mouth. The waiters were all very good at what they do and seem to enjoy it. Very good.

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.
