Great food and service for a very reasonable price! The menu is available only in Italian, but the staff will explain you everything. The food was delicious and not heavy at all - even the fried seafood mix)) And tiramisu was a pure work of art) The selection of wines is quite nice, too. Definitely worth eating there and i...

We were recommended this restaurant by a friend and tracked it down with quite some effort as it is tucked away down a little side street (many of these in Venice). As we hadn't booked we turned up just before it opened at 6.30pm and they squeezed us in. At least three other couples arrived just after us and couldn't... More

Happened to be standing outside looking at the menu before opening, when a staff approached to go in. I asked her what some of the menu items were, and she explained very engagingly. So, being tempted, we booked a table with her and how glad we were! Food was very good, and was reasonably priced as was the wine; and... More

Our dinner at this place has been very good and we definitely return when we come to Venezia the next time! Pasta and fish very tasty and the desert (chocolate cake) absolutely amazing. Service was excellent and very friendly at all times. Thanks to the team for a very nice evening!

This restaurant was just a few steps away from our hotel so we decided to give it a go. It was excellent. In a city renowned for poor food and even worse service, this proved to be exactly the opposite. Excellent, friendly service and delicious, freshly prepared food. Lovely wine too. Would highly recommend.

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.

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.
