Ok for a quick lunch

Went there just because it was late and we were tired. Nothing special but pizza was ok so it was the pasta. Service was fine (I've been generous with that). You can find better places if you are not in a rush

Visited this restaurant 3 out of the 4 nights we stayed in Venice. Busy but still fast and friendly service. Lovely seafood pasta, good and reasonablely priced house wine and great dolce. Panna cotta is a favourite. Around 60euros for meal for two with wine. Great value. Recommended.

The seafood pasta and the black squid pasta was very tasty and good. The tiramishu desert was very, very good. However, dont order the draft beer. Seems that Italy at least in Rome and Venice, they bring it to you with atleast 2 inches of beer foam on top. Who likes beer foam when they drink a beer. In additon,... More

I know Venice can afford to serve bad food considering the amount of tourists they get but this was disgusting. I would imagine ANY Italian restaurant to serve a decent dish of spaghetti Vongole but no... This was terrible!!! It's like they poured a whole pack of salt on the dish. My partner had a penne Quattro formaggi and it... More

Let me start by sayi gong we are five days into our Italian vacation. On my way! meals are great, others are so so. I Never add salt to my food, but the dinner was inedible. How one can make pesto bad, I don't know. Service was sub par.

The Zattere is where the sun shines in Venice. A long canal side promenade where Venetians come and strut their stuff, all done up in their best clothes after church on a Sunday . There are plenty of small bars and restaurants whey they sit or stand and chatter away over their favourite tipple of Spritz, made with white wine,... More

Made the mistake of just wandering down the street and walking into this restaurant rather than looking at the reviews first. There are so many restaurants in Venice that it's easy to just end up wandering around trying to figure out where would be a good choice, but this one really is best avoided. The basket of, let's call it... More

We were staying a few minutes walk from here and wanted a quick dinner when in Venice. The menu looked nice so we decided to give it a try. My partner ordered penne in four cheese sauce and I ordered spaghetti with pesto. When the penne arrived, I kid you not but there was a small plate of half cooked... More

Avoid at all costs. Overcooked pasta with no flavour. Staff obviously didn't want to be there. I'd rather have a root canal done than eat here ever again.

This is one of the best restaurant we have been to in Venice. Of course everybody sees the "world" differently, but we have been to this place several times and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent, the service is good. We are never rushed and the food always comes in an appropriate time after ordering and when having... 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.
