Definitely ask for the chef's recommendations!

Was tempted to sample this place after reading that the chef here had preciously worked at La Colombina, which serves some of the best food Venice has to offer. Situated in Cannaregio, near the Jewish Quarter, this restaurant is located just off the main thoroughfare Strada Nuova, but is well... read more

Was with my husband there last night and from all the restaurants so far this was the best dinner so far! The staff was so friendly and the chef was great, came out and talked to all his customers. They even had a musician inside playing and you could feel the romance in this little ally. We always try to... More

We had read reviews and this restaurant was written up in two well known guide books so we went out of our way to find it. there were no seats outside but there was a two piece band playing and it seemed to have a good atmosphere. We were seated in an adjacent room - initially we were the only... More

The food here is good but perhaps a little pricey. Remember to eat the Italian way and order two mains, or else the portion sizes might not be enough. The staff is friendly and the restaurant has good air conditioning, which is important in Venice in the summer!

I recently ate here with my partner (under the stupidly naive instruction of a British online 'travel' guide) and I can say that unless you have an extraordinarily basic taste palette, you'll find this restaurant a disgrace at £80 for 2 mains and a wine. Maybe I'm used to the culinary standards of restaurants in London however this should never... More

The restaurant was by far our best night out in Italy! The atmosphere was brilliant. We ate outside first of all, sharing garlic bread to start and then had sea bass and a steak for our main courses and they were delicious - 10/10! The service was excellent, very friendly and helpful. We also had a complimentary prosecco!! After our... More

Not a great offering for this neighborhood and quite overpriced for what it is. Would not recommend this restaurant. No set menu for lunch also makes it an expensive lunch. Ignore any articles about this being off the tourist trail or a local establishment. It's a tourist trap now unfortunately.

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.
