“Good family run restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2009

Finding a decent restaurant in Venice without paying ridiculous rates doesn't seem to be very easy.

Tucked away in a part of Venice (Cannaregio) away from the maddening crowds, Ristorante Diana provides good food and a relaxed family-run atmosphere for what is a competitive price. We ate there three times, we spent between 20 and 40 EUR per person for a 2/3 course meal but one can spend a lot more.

Some courses were excellent, some a little less exciting but always at a good standard. Generous portions and really excellent desserts (Ricotta Cake and Lemon Cake were wonderful) made for a very satisfying experience.

“Delicious, friendly and affordable!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2009

This amazing little resturant is right along the canal and was only a few blocks from our apartment. One taste of the gnocchi gorganzola and my mom and i went back 3 more times while in Venice. The spaghetti bolognese and Titimisu arent to be missed either. The owner is friendly and very kind, he even recognized us out in the street one day and stopped to say hello.
