We had polpetta, squid ink and calamari pasta, pasta with bacon, octopus and polenta, and fried shrimp and calamari with a polenta cake (all along with demi-litres of white and red house wine), and biscotti and sweet wine to finish. All of the food was consistently excellent start to finish. The squid pasta, fritto, and octopus were standouts. The only... More

This charming little place tucked away in a small corner a few minutes walk from the train station was a great find. I walked in to find a narrow wooden bar where a few locals were sipping glasses of red wine and snacking. Further in were some tables where people seemed to be enjoying lunch. I decided to stand at... More

Sensational local bar and cicheteria. Great local dishes. It feels like it is unchanged for at least a hundred years. You hear every European language and more. Everyone enjoying the place, the food, the wine, the service. A metaphor for what Europe really is and can still be? We went on the day of the Italian referendum - result not... More

Maybe ok for cichetti - very busy in the alley for those, but sit-down not so great. Tiny portions very overpriced. a very bland liver and onion dish with polenta reminiscent of school glue. The hipster waiters are too in love with themselves to be aware of any shortcomings...

Small, quaint place hidden away in the corner of the alley that was not touristy. I had the squid ink pasta which was excellent and my husband had spaghetti with bacon, onions and tomatoes. You must try their fried meatballs, they are out of this world. Great service and a good find!!

In a charming corner of Venice, you can find this restaurant where you can taste cichetti and a good glass of wine before starting your evening meal.

This year I have been in Venice for the 10th time and I always found it difficult to find a not touristic, fair priced Venetian restaurant to which I would always go back to. Well, up until I visited ca d'oro. One enters a cozy, family run restaurant, just hidden from the tourists masses. If you only try one of... More

when you're travelling through a typical touristic city you just want to find a place like this: small, cozy, full of people... when we got there we had to wait a few moments to get a table, which was very nice, since that's a good sign. we had a fantastic pasta and the ambience was just amazing. so dreamy!

As others have said, the meatballs are great. We also had the sardines with pine nuts and raisins, which apparently is another ciccetti that is popular here. It was excellent!! Pastas were also good. We were very satisfied.

If you want something typically Venetian then this is the place for you! We stumbled across it by accident as it was right next to our hotel. We stood at the bar and had quite a few of their little glasses of wine: €1 for white or red, poured straight from a jug! We tried some of their famous meatballs... More

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
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.
