You can tell by the crowds if locals around that this is a good place. The drinks are reasonably priced as are the chiqueti. We had the caprese antipasti and it was divine. Cannot recommend enough.

One of our group knew and recommended we go to this restaurant after our long, busy day, and indeed it was a place to enjoy and relax. Lovely atmosphere, super-nice waitress, unhurried, well-paced service, delicious food (Bigoli in salsa, with onions and anchovies, then a perfectly cooked steak) - what was not to like? This was so far off the... More

We sought this little place out as it had good reviews and near our hotel (una). The waiter carefully and patiently translated and described every dish on the menu and was so friendly and welcoming. We had fish and a fritto misto and both were superb. We each had a half litre of house wine (fizz and a Chardonnay) which... More

It is kind of difficult to find this little restaurant, because it is in a little street, but it definitely worths it. It is a classic italian venice restaurant. The menu has a lot of fish and seafood and it is only in italian, which was quit a pain, because we don't know italian and so the waiter had to... More

We wanted to go somewhere off the crowded tourist streets. This was perfect. Menu is in Italian but waitress translated for us happily. Food was simple but flavoursome. Pasta was cooked to perfection and my husband said his steak was amazing. Happily recommend to others. €60 for 1 wine, 2 beers, 2 mains and 2 deserts.

Tucked away in a little italian cobblestone laneway is a fine place to wine and dine (if you can find it that is). The waitress was great as she can translate the menu into english and willingly too. We started off with the beef carpaccio, didn't look like much on the plate. However, the understated simplicity had a great impact... More

I found this little restaurant in Cannaregio on TripAdvisor after searching for a place to eat near our hotel. We had dinner here on our first night in Venice and were glad to get a good dinner so close by, after a full day walking all around the city. All food was well prepared from high-quality ingredients. The portions we... More

We discovered this restaurant through trip advisor. It was an absolute delight. Small menu with all the pasta made on the premises. The menu whilst all in Italian was quickly translated by our waitress. The food was divine and cost €180 for 4 of us including, beer, wine 3 entrees and 4 mains. It is off the tourist thoroughfare but... More

We had an excellent meal here, the quality was fabulous and the service was wonderful. This is a very small restaurant in a neighborhood tucked into an alley, so it's hard to find, but worth it.

Thank Hope M

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.
