It's such an unassuming place. Sort of half hidden. We were not disappointed at all. The service was great. One of the partners, Bruno, welcomed and seated us and made us feel at home from the get go. We were a wee bit early, as...More

First, this is all seafood. Second, it’s tiny. 14 seats inside, another few outside. The fish is super fresh. Whipped Cod was, well, whipped. Strangest presentation of fish I’ve ever seen, but delicious. Mixed grill gave us a chance to taste Sea Bass, Orata, calamari,...More

Everyone has their favorite out-of-the-way "secret" restaurant in Venice, and this is mine! We literally stumbled upon it while wandering around, and had an amazing lunch--and went back for dinner a couple of days later. It's intimate, friendly, and with lovingly prepared local specialties. Try...More

My partner and I both love fish and seafood so were very excited about this restaurant. In a very quiet backstreet, with only 18/20 overs inside, we were lucky to get a table without a reservation. Food was excellent, recommended wine was just right, service...More

As we walked toward the restaurant, we quickly left the tourists behind. It was refreshing to explore a quiet, local part of Venice. We arrived shortly after it opened without a reservation and were seated right away. If you're going later in the night or...More

Alla Fransca was recommended to us by a Venetian friend as we wanted to go somewhere quiet but good with my in-laws. This is a place you must book and arrive at the allotted time. The kitchen is small and they don’t churn tables. Or...More

Osteria alla Frasca is a small restaurant that has been around for almost two centuries - the story of the establishment is magic. The Osteria is operated by a perfectly balanced and passionate team of four people for 30 guests - the limited menu allows...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
