We visited the restaurant 3 times over a 3 week period. At each visit the food was very good and the service was also good for the majority of the time. On our last visit I made the mistake of paying by card. I was...handed the card machine and I saw that I was given the option of paying in pounds or euros. I didn’t really think about it and pressed pounds since I am from the UK. At the same time the man who had served us (previously very nice) tried to grab the machine. It was too late and I had paid in pounds. He began to very loudly explain that it was a problem for the business. Once the currency is converted they lose money. I offered to compensate him €5 (a lot more than this misunderstanding would have cost), but he refused which doesn’t make him all bad. We put a tip on the counter and left. I felt upset afterwards. We had attended the restaurant 3 times during a period that few people are willing to travel. I felt I was treated unfairly for a simple misunderstanding and I got the impression that man also felt bad for how he had acted when we left. If it’s so important why didn’t he operate the machine? Can the conversion really be enough to upset loyal customers?More

The food is good quality with nice traditional options on the menu (polenta con schie, polpette, linguine al nero di seppia, etc.), the atmosphere is warm, cosy and convivial. The only problem was with the final bill - we spent 81 euros for two people,...which was overall a fair price for what we ate and drank, but when we looked at the receipt the day after we realised they charged us for a bottle of wine instead of three glasses, for four polpette instead of two, and so on. Not saying that they did it on purpose but double check the bill before paying :)More

Simple dishes that are extraordinary tasty. The seafood is verry nice. We had the sour shrimps and fishes and the polenta with octopus. Polpetta and bavette al pesto. Nice portions with excellent balanced ingredients. The Venetian cookies with pasito wine and the frittella with cream...were a perfect closure of the meal.More

Really good food, and for an affordable price! I really recommend the Nero di sepia. The service was also very good

A convenient place near to the Golden House for a rest, a cappuccino and a pastry. Service was a little slow all around and the quality was just OK. Costs were around what you would expect in tourist Venice.

It's better not to go there...without a reservation! Even if the waiters will always do their best to accomodate. It will be difficult, as customers would rather eat another dish than leave the place! Great atmosphere coupled with simple, extremely tasty Venetian dishes and good...regional wines. Tradition at its best!More

i went there for the meatball, because i read so many good reviews about it and i love love love meatballs :) the meatballs were ok. it’s not “out-of-this-world-delicious”. service is friendly and efficient. baccala mantecato (con polenta) is good, bucatini amatriciana is cooked perfectly...but the pork jowl is cut too thick and therefore smells/tastes bit funny. there was a long line when we got there. the place opens for dinner at 6.30pm but they wont sit you at the table before 7pm.More

See my review from May, 2018. Ca D’Or alla Vedova is all about the Meatball. Come in with a frown and an attitude and you won’t enjoy it. Come in with a smile and an expectation of a delicious Meatball experience and you will enjoy...it.More

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

I gave them a ring but make sure you are booked. Because when we arrived the lady didn’t really made the booking but staff was lovely and accommodated us.

Not for the bar. Recommend you stay for dinner - you'll need a reservation for that. Gets very busy on Sunday evenings too.
