Average meal - cuttlefish pasta lacked zing

This place is reasonably priced. My cuttlefish pasta lacked zing and was nothing special though my husband's ham and cream pasta looked and tasted delicious. Service was efficient and friendly. Generous serving of wine.

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.

Food was ok, served on shipped plates and drinking glasses, but that was not the bad part. I ordered a side dish of spinach which I had done at every restaurant in Venice throughout our stay. I asked for it “normal,” which I learned very early meant plain; without anything. I specifically asked for it without salt. When it arrived... More

My husband and I just finished our walk in Venice and decided to take a chance and eat at this restaurant. We sat down early and had the restaurant to ourselves for dinner. You never know what kind of restaurant you are going to eat at while walking through a tourist area, but this one surprised us. We wanted to... More

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

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

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.

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.
