Romantic dinner

Most mouthwatering , selection of food. The liver and onions was the best I've ever had. The gumbo was not overwhelming. It just brought you home to your happy place. The price was high but how much can you value art. Chef Domenico is an artist , and food is his canvas. I will definitely recommend... read more

We stopped by this place right after our first tour and it was our first Venetian food experience. The table we got smelled a little of cat pee. The server was extremely nice and good came quickly but it just wasn't good food. The bath room works but you have to stick you hand into the top of the toilet... More

Tonight we went first to a highly recommended place. It was closed. Then a 2nd that was fully booked and very rude about it. Walked by Bentigodi and remembered Rick Steve's note. We had an absolute blast and great great food. Chef is great and Vincenzio a wonderful waiter. Mentioned how we liked the paintings and the artist Tony Green... More

Loved everything about this restaurant. The first time we visited, we sat outside and we're just blown away by the delicious food. When we came back, there was no room outdoors, so we ate inside with wonderful music and art, which made the food even better! The service was was great, they were very patient with our lack of proper... More

You order a "sgombro" and they try to sell you a different type of fish.....not reliable. You tel them this is not a "sgombro" and they try to sell you a story.....

Lots of character and warmth and excellent food. Spaghetti with oil and garlic and cheese is excellent. Seafood tempura also very good. Duo playing really nice jazz standards, plus fun, eclectic decor. Several locals as well as tourists. A great and unexpected find!

The food was good and the service ok, so I would have liked to give 3.5 points. Nevertheless, we were not entusiastic, in part due to the ambiance and decor of the restaurant that were not our cup of tea. Prices were in our opinion a little bit too high, buth nothing outrageous.

What a great find. We four lovers of good food (3 of the four are long time food professionals), ate here twice in 3 days. Genuinely friendly staff, good service and fine food. 2 of us are vegetarians, and they did not hesitate to accommodate us. Reasonably priced. All in all, highly recommended.

This little bistro was hard to find but I am glad we persevered. We had the daily chef special, lobster with linguini, fabulous! The beef Carpaccio, pumpkin and mushroom soup was also delicious. Add a nice bottle of Chianti and we had a perfect last lunch in Venice!

We wandered across Bentogodi, situated as it is off the main thoroughfare. Full of locals, we snaffled the last of the seats and were treated to wonderful courteous service and delightful food courtesy of Domenico. It is a little pricey but the food we had...lamb cutlets with vegetables was stunningly cooked. To top it off we were entertained with piano... 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.
