I really cannot say enough about this amazing little find! While it is situated on the main shopping street of Venice there is a tendency to think less of it because of this and assume that it is a typical tourist trap style eating establishment! However you could not be more wrong! Unassuming enough in its appearance outside the interior... More

We always look for locally owned restaurants when we travel. This establishment serves traditional Italian dinners. It took us awhile to find it, but we were pleased when we did. We ate a late lunch and immediately asked if nonna was cooking. She came out and greeted us with a smile. We had a recommended cuttle fish pasta with polenta... More

The seafood was fresh and wonderful. The rest of the food was nothing special. I thought it was on the expensive side.

Unassuming restaurant, easy to miss, no particular charm, but very tasty local food and pleasant welcome. Obviously family run, right to the kitchen.

This small restaurant delivered the goods with a very nice daily special of cuttlefish slivers tossed in a light tomato/garlic sauce. Truly excellent food, served up by a very helpful waitress. There are a few tables outside and a few inside. It's easy to overlook, but the quality of the food was significantly better than other restaurants I tried in... More

We stop there becouse it seemed a good looking location for drinking a glass of wine and eating some CICHETTI. We drank in total 2 glasses of normal wine (della casa, not a bottle of good italian wine) and ate one taste of Seppie (4 little one), one of vegetables and one of Alici (like 10 or 12 small and...

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.
