After a long day walking in the streets of Venice we went to the Osteria for dinner and it was just delicious. The prices for the quality of food are really good and not expansive like the other things we have seen on the main streets.

We had a very relaxed meal with good food and service on a busy Saturday night. Be sure to get a reservation. Started with a lovely smoked buffalata and then into pasta, salmon, some kind of fish, and dolce. Enjoyed all with a reasonable Riserva.

Menu in Italian, so very confusing. Start with our table wobbled, difficult to manage, service very slow, we did not like the Burrata, and ordered spaghetti with clams, spaghetti was so hard uneatable.

Food here is very good and well priced. Staff is friendly and helpful. Do book as it is a tiny tiny restaurant. So tiny it does not stock milk for coffees as the fridge is too small Well worth eating here though for a true Venetian dining experience

Keep your eyes open to find the place but it will be worth it. They have a terrace in the back. Food was very good and so was the service.

Great small local restaurant with great food and service. Make reservations as it was crowded all night and walk ins were not seated. Outside and inside seating. All food was extremely fresh and well prepared. Under $70 euro with bottle of wine

Found this place through a recommendation online. Great service, great food, great atmosphere. We were lucky to be their first customer. We ordered the 5 different fried fish, scallops and spaghetti with prawns. All tasted great! House red wine was also very tasty. Highly recommend!

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

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.
