We stopped in at mid-day before it got busy. The staff were super nice and indulgent with us. We had meatballs - the house specialty - to start. They are indeed good. Deep fried and yet light, with a nicely spiced mixture. They are not heavy hamburger meatballs. We had Spaghetti alle Vongole and the squid ink linguini with seafood... More

We walked past this place on the way to our B&B and wondered what it would be like. We saw that it seemed to be popular and decided to go with friends, glad we did. The atmosphere inside is great, the setting seems unchanged for decades and the service was quick and attentive. We all enjoyed our various meals and... More

My husband and I went here last night for our anniversary. When we walked in the door we were standing there a few minutes before being acknowledged. As we made a reservation we were finally seated. At first the service was good, we asked about recommendations and how many meat balls we should try. We ordered 2 meat balls each... More

Great meatballs. Eating in the alleyway outside while drinking wine was different, but part of the atmosphere. Good stuff! Don't miss it.

We found this restaurant accidentally by hearing the lively sounds from the back door window which opened onto the street we where we stayed. What an unexpected find! We were greeted warmly and seated right away. The menu was fairly small and simple but everything was fresh and well prepared. We started with their famous meatballs which honestly were not... More

Nice place with an oldfashioned feel to it. Unfortunately no outside seating. Staff was friendly and efficient, prices low for the quality delivered, however, their polpete (meatballs) are popular but nothing special really. All in all, we had a pleasant lunch there.

Classic crumbed and fried polpette eaten standing at the bar with a glass of Prosecco. Eat them as quickly as possible and order more - they are addictive.

A great restaurant with an interesting interior. Meatballs are handed as an 'apitizer ' and very nice. Liver and onion dish very nice. Good wine and good service and not rushed. Worth searching out.

We ate here a few years ago and we were really impressed, enough that we remembered where it was when we returned to Venice. Sadly, this time it was the worst food that we had all trip. Shared 1 pasta dish and 2 fish dishes, and the only flavour in all 3 plates was salt. Way too much salt.

Thank laffingboy

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.
