Just average

I will start by premising that we are not really in the habit of picking a restaurant on a main busy touristy street. However, it was raining, we were hungry and no other choice. I should have continued to follow my instinct. Not that it was bad, it was just ok with a high price. Yes I know... read more

We came for dinner here and it wasn't great. I ordered salmon spaghetti and it was quite bland and could have done with some more sauce. My partner ordered macaroni and was given penne pasta. The service wasn't good the staff looked miserable and when the waiter was taking my order halfway through talking he turned round to talk to... More

After walking an entire day and before going back to Giudecca we stumbled upon this little place. The place was fairly packed which usually indicates the food is good and the price is reasonable. We were served by our waiter Amjad, an extremely friendly and helpful person that guided us through the menu. My sister had the insalata caprese with... More

Enjoyed the pasta nero and the tortellini with cream and prosciutto. Friendly staff, good prices, and the inexpensive wine was tasty.

Nice variety of meals and very well cooked with lots of flavour. Lots of different seafood options and a nice variety of wines. Pasta was cooked perfectly and the ambience was very traditional. Prices were reasonable and the staff were very professional.

Arriving in Cannaregio just after 10pm, we were pleased to find a local trattoria still serving food. Despite being November, it was still warm enough to sit outside. The staff were welcoming, and brought drinks and breadsticks immediately. I had a warm roasted veg salad (about 8 different types of veg), and my other half opted for a seafood salad,... More

We sat at a cute little table outside of the restaurant watching the passers by and sipping on our spritzers (which by the way are delicious!) Great food - we enjoyed a seafood dish! The service was attentive and good and we would certainly return if we ever visited Venice again.

Properly cooked "proper" T bone steak (done as I asked), very tender and well cooked veal. Nice atmosphere, helpful friendly waiters - recommended.

Yes it's on a tourist thoroughfare and that might give pause but we took a chance on a night after a long drive to Venice because it wasn't far from our hotel. Turned out fine enough to bring us back on a second night. The house white wine was definitely drinkable and the bread quite tasty. My schnitzel with pommes... More

Really shocked to see all the bad reviews on here. We had a delicious meal here, probably the most tasty during our stay. The sardines in vinegar were to die for followed by the seafood gnocchi and a delicious pannacotta. The house white wine was very good and accompanied the meal perfectly.

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.
