Friendly relaxed service, some dishes excellent others disappointing, Seafood risotto was perfectly cooked and my husband loved his liver Venetian style, but I was disappointed with my sea bass - not as fresh as I would have liked. Interesting live music and decor, worth a visit, but can't give it more than 3 stars

This was our first meal in Venice after traveling 24 hours to get here. MAMMA MIA! I weep at how good it was. We had the Antipasti alla Chef Domenico and it was enough for two of us. A mix of raw and cooked seafood, prepared sublimely and some of the freshest prawns and reed clams I've ever had. The... More

We were here july 2013 and july 2014. Both times it hAs been excellent. The service can be a little slow, but quite standard for Italy overall. I was mostly excited aboutthe fresh fish, and chef Domineco did not let us down. Just a few seats so it feels personal.

Me and my partner stumbled upon this last week. We ordered two ombre and some fish dishes to eat. We were probably here for an hour and were the only tourists in the place which was quite nice. The staff behind the bar gave us extra food and free slices of panettone which was very kind of them. They also... More

Although I've rated this average, it's still fair to say that my girlfriend and I had a lovely evening here. We were seated and served by a friendly waiter who was on hand as required throughout the meal. There was a live band playing a few Beatles covers (downtempo) along with some other songs we didn't know. The food was... More

Hi Everyone! I had the chance to stop by this restaurant few days ago. The place and the people there are nice and really welcoming, but we had a bad surprise later.... We were in 3 people and we ordered 2 fish antipasti, 2 fritture miste and 1 fish grigliata, with 1 liter of prosecco wine. We ended up paying... More

Found this hidden gem on Tripadvisor whilst browsing where to eat out once in Venice. We booked a table and it was a good job we did, the place was packed! A restaurant for the locals so you know you are guaranteed good food! Unlike these touristy places by St.Marks. Great buzz about the place as well as lovely food... 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.
